So with the super soil it provides nutrients via guano err worm castings n such so I am just gonna try the flush n see what happens I guess that is my best option at this point it might be the temps but it has never gotten below 64 and no hotter than 83 I run a ac to modify temps
Ok did a flush at 6.2 ph and run off was at 7.1 so ph maybe I dunno we will see
In a couple days
It would be nice to see what your runoff TDS is. You could drop the PH down to 6.0 which won’t hurt and while you’re at it how about telling us the TDS of your input as well.
@MrPeat nailed it: P def.
I am a new grower I grow in soil and I don’t TDS is it crucial for a soil medium I thought was more for hydro please educate
I was never going to ise a pH and TDS meters. I see why many growers said you should have it.
Any time you supplement you should record the strength of the solution. Regardless of soil or not.
please share info on correct TDS for soil or where i might gain the knowledge ? much appreciated
First; let’s start with actually recording what you are putting in.
Soil will buffer higher nutrient concentrations that would likely cause issues if you were in straight coco or in hydro. I don’t believe I’d want to feed in soil any higher TDS than 1,100 ppm or so.
I buy these two products
And this product…
I mix the two with appropriate measures from manufacture
1/3 hot soil bottom of 3 gallon fab pot topped of with plain promix
I feed with tbsp/6L of unsulfered moleasses and advanced nutrients Bud Candy 2ml/l
Okay, but still need the TDS of runoff and input.
ok sorry for delay… was waiting for TDS meter to arrive
testing water 6.0PH 400TDS
ok initial runoff showed a PH of 7.2 and TDS of 1475 this was after flushing two nights ago with 12L of water so what i am guessing my problem was a lockout that wasn’t allowing nutrients in??? would you agree???
so i flushed again and then re-tested the run off here are results…
Begin Water 6.0PH / 400 TDS
Run-Off 7.0PH / 612TDS
with that info it was my thought that next water/feed i was thinking
5.5PH / 950-1000TDS
is that correct please advise
thanks again for all help
That sounds like a great place to start.
will post progress …
So to all who helped me with this a little update after flush and getting PPM correct!!! So here are som photos
They look fantastic glad I could help! Gonna be scrumptious!
Looking pretty good and you’re welcome.
