O,
Can you tell me how to measure soil TDS with no runoff?
What are Dissolved Solids?

I hear ya Brother, I haven’t made that move… too much fun with coco and auto pots. Definitely going that route for outside if they make it legal here :pray::pray:

A better method but can be a little intrusive is a soil slurry test. You take a sample from well into the root zone about a 1/4 cup mix that with 1/2 cup of distilled water, stir and let it rest for 24 hours and test the TDS and PH. A very reliable TDS pen would be a Blue Lab and for PH I use an Apera 20 and very reasonable and reliable. Send me a picture of the plants and nutrients you’re using :love_you_gesture:

Here the text book definition :love_you_gesture:

Total dissolved solids is a measure of the dissolved combined content of all inorganic and organic substances present in a liquid in molecular, ionized, or micro-granular suspended form. TDS concentrations are often reported in parts per million.

Thanks. I will get back toyou. Next year will be living soil in pots with runoff…I think

No run off if you’re going the full organic route :love_you_gesture:

Slurry Test
PH 6.2

Looks like the plant might survive.
