My three (3) plants look great, to me. Green and healthy. Plus, I have been doing Low Stress Training in the past week to expose it to more light. One plant I actually ‘topped’. They are all looking good. My PH is in about 6.3
Question: tomorrow I am expecting my TDS/PPM meter to arrive. I have studied on how to water and then collect the runoff to ascertain the math. First I will PH and also use the tester on my tap water. Ive been watering by letting the water sit overnite to minimize chlorine. I also have a gallon of distilled water.
They are also due for the next watering tomorrow.
I have a bottle of FoxFarms ‘Grow Big’ and ‘Tiger Bloom’. I understand that the amount I use, to avoid burning, will be determined by the pre- adding nutrients soil’s PPM is at? Minus the PPM of the tap water? Or if I use the distilled water then just the straight PPM of the soil. Correct?
Then, if warranted by the PPM of the watered soil, I will add the nutrients, but probably at 1/4 of the amount on Foxfarms feeding schedule. Then wait to see how the plants do?
Am I on the correct track?
Also, I read that those nutrients will screw up my good PH. Is that true only if I use too much nutrients? Or, do I need to be checking the soil ‘PH’ regularly anyway, so…I’ll just cross that bridge if I find the PH screwed up in a week or two?
Am I thinking clearly?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
