My plants are 6 weeks old , and i have been given half doses of ff nutrients, made full doses this time ph was at 5.3, i have had to add at least 20 drops per gal and finally up to 6.1. Does this seem normal ? Thanks
Yeah, it takes more ph up to adjust than ph down. Hard water will effect this also
Should be closer to 6.5 if in soil. What is pH of water? Do you check water before you add neuts?
Also make sure you test your runoff water also. The salt buildup from the nutrients will cause your soil or coco ph to rise
Ive been using purified water, i didn’t test these but i tested Wednesday when just watering it was 8, and they are in soil ffhf 5 gal buckets with holes in bottom and bottom sides, i tested the run off after watering Wednesday it was 5.8
Looks like you are being taken care of. Thanks, guys!
Just feed them, got it to 6.4, feed 2gal to 4 plants, got 2/3 of a gal back , 3 plants @5.6 and 5.2 from my biggest(northern lights)was 5.2
