Ok guys, I just started flowering my lady 4 days ago. My question is, I’m going to start feeding her some nutes, do I ph the water before and after I add the food? And adjust even after adding food to water? Doesn’t that effect the nutrients that I’m adding to the water?
No you just add nutes , mix it good, then adjust ph level
Ok, so it doesn’t matter what it is before hand?
No it doesn’t matter. Just add nutes then pH. Also, if you are using a 3 part nutrient, you want to add the micro first. You want to test your run off water too so you know what the pH is in the root zone
if your on city water you want to let it sit for at least 24 hrs before you use it
I’ve been using distilled water. The ph of the water after nutes was around 5.5 and the run out was the same. This is good right?
Media like coco or promix 5.5 to 5.8. Soil is 6.3 to 6.8. If you are in soil you are WAY off. How are you measuring ph? If drops or pen be advised they are not accurate enough. A digital meter calibrated regularly is the way to measure ph.
yea you need to get that ph up around 6.5 if your in soil
I ordered a ph digital tester, it’ll be here tomorrow. Since she’s been in flower for almost a week now is it ok to top her? Or is it too late?
Too late not enough time to recover
Ok thanks for the info @Macadon.
