Im thinkn that this is nute burn but not sure. Using FF nute regiment in FF happy frog soil, under a 1000w led at 24/0. Top growth is fine and a Girl Scout next to her had very little tip burn on the lowest leaves only. Just flushed her and any other info would be great… Thanks
What’s are your run off ph and ppm readings ?
And ph in and if feed ppm in ?
Havnt tested the Ph and using the full dosage of what FF suggests.
Do not feed anymore until you know where your ph level is
Do you have a ph meter ?
If so it important you get that info in soil ph needs to be between 6.3-6.8 and I personally target 6.5
Ph above and below these range will cause lock out issues
Yup. PH is a nightmare n about the single most underrated aspect to growing. Reason being the plant needs proper pH to access certain nutes.
I dont have a meter any certain ones you suggest that are cost effective as well??
Venkekool is a cheap $14 from amazon. But the Apera is around 48$ and much more reliable
Thanks for the info much appreciated!!
One more ???.. when using these testers how are you gettn you sample to be tested???.. straight soil or water run off as stated earlier in the thread??.. looks like these testers are for water only
Here’s one I know a few members use and like
They have cheaper ones available as well if in a tight budget we have noticed the cheap meter don’t stay calibrated and need to be adjusted more often but they do work
I use a much more expensive meter but it’s not necessary to spend a lot
You want to water or feed till you get about 20% run off ( meaning 20% of what you put in ) collect it and test
Most of use use drip trays under the pots which collects it for use any garden center will have the pot trays or pans @PigmanBBQ
I also recommend you get a tds meter as well
Here’s a inexpensive one for you to look at
This will help you determine how much nutrients are in soil
Great!!.. Will be testing ph and TDS soon as i get a couple testers… Thanks for the info!!!
Woohoo and welcome to the forum brother

Let me know when you get the meters and I will assist you with getting things straight
Happy growing CB
@Countryboyjvd1971 I would like to sit in on the tutorial. My ph meter will be here tomorrow and I already purchased a tds meter. Just don’t know what I am looking for.
Sounds good @QtPatooty
For soil you want 6.3-6.8 ph always water and feed after adjusting to this range
Tag me when you get it and are ready
And welcome to the forum
There are many wonderful members here so don’t be shy jump into the conversations and say hello lol
@Countryboyjvd1971I got the meters in and tested the water going in and the 20 percent run off,this is what I got
Tap water: ph 9.0 TDS 43
White widow(pic above): ph7.0 TDS 930
Girl Scout cookies: ph 7.0 TDS 350
I still haven’t feed them yet and what do you think bout these numbers?
Hey @PigmanBBQ sorry didnt have this set to watchin. How are the girls?
Well here whats going on and I’m kinda stressn. So the ppm above were wrong i wasnt readn the x10 so put a zero in front of those numbers. Anyway i flushed wit straight water at a ph of 6 and got the ppm down to 900 for the GSC and got the WW down to 1050 both with a ph range of runoff if 6.4-6.9. I started feeding with big bloom and grow big at 450 ppm and 6.0. The GSC really had a growth spurt but she is showing yellow stryations in the new growth tops and it seems to be gettn beter but it is slow to overcome. The WW looks really sparse and Struggling. I will send pics when I get a chance mab there is somtin else i should be doing. Thanks for asking!!
Dude sorry I was never tagged you didn’t leave a space between name on the post
