You water the soil and the pH swings one way.
As it dries out.
It swings back again.
The ONLY way to make a permanent “adjustment” to the soil pH is to amend the soil….
The pH of any liquid is the pH of the liquid, not the “potential” pH of the soil…..ANY effect the liquid pH will bring to the table will have no real effect after the next watering – no matter what that liquid pH is either….
Once you have a soil in “range”……pHing all in going to 6.5 – 6.7 and forget the soil ph…..This is true for synthetics and to a lesser need (phing in going) organics…..
I would venture it to be more important to keep the micro heard as active as you can in synthetic use.
Most bagged soils are pH set.
It can be wise sometimes to add a slow release lime agent to bagged soils for long runs…..a good handful or 1/2 cup works wonders…..FF soils are ones I would do almost no matter how long I use them….
I would like to share my experience with seed city.
Once after i deciding to order some seeds online i sourced number of site but unfortunatly very few sites ship to india, after comparing the prices and stealth options i finally placed order withhttp://www.seed-city.com, they are offering a discount coupon for 10% (ARBOROUS).
I made a smaller purchase to test them out, and in the meantime I checked out reviews online. LOTS of positive reviews from people, and very few (if any?) negative comments. i ordered only 2 auto flower seeds to test them, paid through my CC shipped in 24hrs with tracking it took 8 days to reach Andhra Pradesh(INDIA), stealth and packing was TOP NOTCH and they are kind enough to send me a extra auto seed. All 3 seeds germinated in couple of days.
I vouch for these guys and will continue to do business .
I have a 12x11x9 room. I am installing a 24k btu mini split. Will be a sealed room with co2 enrichment.
I have quite a few options.
I would like to venture into hydro, I was thinking 2 possibly 3(would be tight) 4×4 flood tables in hydroton or coco.
I could either spend another 550ish to get some light movers, or I could just buy another light or 2.
Possibly 2 stationary 1000′s and one 1000 on a light mover on the back of the room? I would get overlapping light and save a bit of money on electricity.
I have an extra 4×8 space for mothers/cloning. I was thinking put 25 plants into flower per table, and space them a month apart. I would get about 8 harvests per year. Possibly one week veg just handwatering, but may go straight clone to 12/12.
Room will be sealed, and a 24k btu split could easily combat 4k of light and a co2 generator once I obtain one. I would just have to ask my landlord if the breaker can handle that much power.
Any help is greatly appreciated, hopefully I can get this figured out and running within the month!
Hope this isn’t considered hijacking the thread, no other activity on this forum, though.
I cannot find Netafim Pro Foggers to save my life, Netafim doesn’t even have them on their Amazon. The Hago B series Atomizing nozzles from mistcooling.com don’t have anti-drip feature. They even have better M series, and several different inline anti-drip adapters, but none of them have the correct threads.
Possible Solution: KBN Ceramic Nozzle $11 link
I like the green one for flow rate, but no drop diameter is listed, so I think I’ll go with Red (0.36 mL/s @~80PSI, 35[um] mean drop size,50 degree hollow cone)
Atomizer, do you think the Red will work, perhaps it is too small(clog, wear issue?) Also, I read somewhere that you had never used hollow cone. Does anyone think hollow cone spray pattern will diminish the HPA process?
