I haven’t checked my PH in a couple days but nf2 seems to be doing much better. Ive never had much luck with manually dropping the pH with anything but water changes so i tend to just let it re-acidify naturally if for any reason it gets too high so i guess that’s what im going to do again. Going to check ph here in a sec and will update. Also, ive never had much luck with ladybugs. If you make a good habitat that they can live in and reproduce in and leave a very small hole where they can escape in small numbers you will really get the most out them. The stage after larva stage is the one you want. Supposedly that is the one that will eat mites which is why you need them to reproduce. Again ive never had much success but that is the proper way to release ladybugs into the garden. Dome cloners make a good habitat. Ill link you a video so you can see what I’m talkin about. https://youtu.be/hu8owmc7Wfg
Nf2 seems to be doing better after the past couple days without any adjustments besides topping off water and changing about 35% of it.
Nf1 is doing much better after that hiccup with the pump i had. 12-18-17, today, is the last day of stretch and the canopy is looking like it has a couple bald spots. Its all good. Hopefully next time i won’t lose 3 days of stretch because of my own mistakes.
