Hi all! Love this forum!!
I just transplanted this girl into her 5 gal forever home last night. I have a couple ph inquiries, so I’m kind of limiting all of the details, forgive me.
Strain: Girl Scout Cookies Extreme Auto-fem by ILGM
Age: 15 days from sprout
Soil: FFOF, no additional nutes
I put her in here because she was having small issues with her first home . Load her in, nice big gulp of water a couple inches from her stalk.
Fast forward to this morning.
Check the ph of the wet dirt, with distilled water, and it’s in the red, below 5.0😵.
So I do some other tests. Dry dirt with distilled, dry with tap. Already wet dirt (with distilled) filling reservoir with distilled, and filling with tap.
With the tap and dry dirt I’m getting right in the 6.5 area. Maybe .1 or .2 up or down. Every reading with distilled, though, drops the ph. My tap water by itself runs just under 7. Now that I think about it, 6.5 is a pretty good ph number isn’t it? So now,
Should I try just flushing out the wet dirt with tap water?
Or should I let it soak and just give her tap from now on?
Also, if anybody has info on the curls on her first 3 pointers? This happened yesterday morning and has not gotten any worse, but hasn’t undone itself.
