Just cant do it anymore @OGIncognito . Living soil has transformed me. Hallelujah!!!
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
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
Here the text book definition
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
We aint growing tomatoes buddy. Lol. Simple but true. Id be more inclined to wonder what they have been eating. Like what exactly are u giving and have u tested the ppms of the solution before adding? What about the runoff?
OG has you going the right direction.
You can certainly say that again lol!!!
No run off if you’re going the full organic route
Nice job Growmie, a little low on the PPMs. Shoot for 800-900 this stage of veg and 1000-1100 in flower
OG, (and others)
Thanks for all your help.
Anytime Growmie, tag me if you need more help or questions
