I fed her 5 days ago and she felt dry yesterday so I gave her a drink and added the humidifier. Everyone was fed the same foods grow big, big, bloom, and tigerbloom. I didn’t get a reading on her this time. Should I go ahead and give her some more to get runoff? Also is there anything I could test my ph stick in that you know has a certain ph like vinegar or something? I just got this ph stick and I calabrated it when I got it and I don’t know that I trust it.


#102

What was your last Ph reading?


#103

6.6 with the new ph stick.


#104

This is a digital Ph meter you’re using?

I don’t know the Ph of vinegar, you really need calibration solution, but if you just calibrated i’m sure it’s fine.

Also, is she in flower?


#105

This is the one I got it was a cheaper one but had 4.8 stars. But it gets down in the 6 range and then jumps down to like 2 and all over the place.


#106

No we are still 18/6.


#107

I think I would give this girl a good flush with some phe Ph-ed water, then give her a full dose of nutes.

If she’s not in flower then you shouldn’t be feeding Tiger Bloom yet, so leave that out. Give 2 tablespoons of Big Bloom and 1 tablespoon of Grow Big in one gallon of water.


#108

Ok I will do that now thanks. I buy gallon water and the ph stick is like 8.6 does that sound right for cheap purified water?


#109

Yeah, probably, so you should lower the Ph to 6.5.


#110

This is a problem straight water here are readings 3 different tests. It’s a big difference between the digital and the two chem. tests. They both read about 6.8and 6.7 but the digital is 8.46. What to do???


#111

I see the problem. I think your meter is off, bottled water is usually around 7.


#112

That’s the same problem I had with my cheap meter. I ended up replacing it. The new one hasn’t been out of calibration since I got it.


#113

I think I can use the chem. tests as long as I don’t add nutes. The color of the nutes screws with the test and makes it hard to read if not at all. I wish I knew how much the nutes causes the ph to go down.


#114

What one did you get that works?


#115

I bought the apera p20. I think @raustin has a bluelab don’t know the model. But either of those brands seem to be the best based on everyone here.


#116

This is a good one:


#117

Do you think after the flush it wouls be ok ph’ing water then adding nutes and wish for the best? I don’t know what more to do.


#118

No, don’t do that, that will only make things worse.

Just add the nutes and ph it as best you can.


#119

So do flush? Mix the nutes best I can feed her. Then get new ph meter? Ooops or did you mean no don’t flush? I need a joint, hokd on, LOL.


#120

@raustin runoff was 7.2 and ppm 270.
