I know not asking me but I’ll chime in anywayz.. Any soil probe will do, get them cheap at your garden center..Drops, by a country mile.. no calibration no drift, add two drops and read what you have.. con; forget about drops if colorblind and go for something requiring the calibration liquid.."n2ishun, Have a good PH meter ?
I don't have a good one. I would like an excellent soil PH tester and the same with a water PH tester. Both should be of high quality and high accuracy. Do you have any suggestions? What do you use?
thankslooks like some nice nugs yosim
Well I sampled that one last night, the high was more couchy but strong, i will try the other plant tonight which was not as far along at harvest timeGood grow report man
Nice plant also... And the purpling... hmm, let us know how it smell and taste like
if you're using tap water, DO NOT ADD CALCIUM calcium carbonate is added to municipal water as a PH buffer mainly to protect the plumbing lines. if you add calmag to tap water. you will get lockout every single time. (my water starts, after filtering, at 300-400ppm)Flushed both plants today, I will feed much less Calcium from now on and hopefully can get them to the end, day 63 of 12/12. One of the plants buds smells really citrusy, the other smells like hay lol
you need to hit edit, then crop, then youll get the rotate option. in windows its at the bottom under image viewer, on phones yeah, edit>crop>rotateHi everyone, getting close to the end now!
big positive is that I don’t see any nanners/seeds so am really happy with that and shows to me that MH is pretty strong and resilient to light issues etc
been checking the trichomes recently, 1 plant i am seeing translucent amber, is this a sign that she’s ready??
The other plant are getting cloudy but not seeing any translucent amber yet, maybe she is just different
Either way I will probably chop them within the next 7 days as seeing some brown trichs on 1 plant indicating that I’m well inside the window for harvest
Just to reply to above posts, I don’t water top down, i use autopots, also i am in soil not coco, thanks all!
p.s. so annoying that images keep rotating 90 degrees
yeah they arent designed for soil use those, i just googled them and i basically just built the exact same system as that just myself with a hose and some t pieces but draining to waste with a bilge pump with a float switch... to ensure plants always get a full spectrum of nutrients with every feeding as its to complex to work out exactly what they ate. i just aim for a 300-500ppm reduction in my run off., but calcium used o get me, especially running 70 p[erlite 30 coco@elmopedia thanks so much for the feedback. I am growing with autopots (Canna soil and then mixed with perlite 70/30) not sure if you are familiar with them, they are described as a flood and drain system. I think you are right on the calcium, I get this same symptoms on all of my grows (mango was my 9th) and I use the same nutrients and water, definitely not overfeeding them, I try to stay on the low side of nutes added, but nevertheless I end up with problems
next grow I will try to feed hardly any calcium and monitor the results - I have also been thinking about trying out Coco
Also, I think I am harvesting too late. Last 2 strains were SSH and Mango, both from Mr. Nice here - each of them just seemed more "couchy" then I would have expected. Now maybe I just got unlucky and they were Indica leaning, however they both went fairly long time wise and also they grew tall and just seemed Sativa from my limited experience anyway
So plenty for me to work on, going to try some different strain next time, I may go back to Mango/SSH if I sort my issues out! thanks
Elmopedia, we're talking Autopots. Yosim linked to their website a couple replies back. I use soil in mine all the time and the reservoir allows me to go away for a few days which is great.Are we talking about airpots or the aeropot cosntheyre different things the aeropot I'd a DWC setup and airpots are made for soil originally but can be used in really any setting
