Does everything look ok?

Hi everyone just a quick question, this is my first time growing. Using a led 1000w ffof soil and the trio nutrients for the soil. I’m on day 5 of wk 4. Everything looks good and nothing is dying​:sweat_smile::sweat_smile: this is my first time growing. It’s a bag seed because I was just trying to see if I can do it. So far so good… I think. I have heard of some people trimming it up. I want to but I’m scared and don’t want to mess anything up. Any advice, suggestions welcome. Also my pH is 5.4 and so I have just been not adding anymore pH down to my solutions. I was using ph strips and finally got a digital tester and the strips I found out are no good. Strips were reading 6 an higher but once I got the digital one it definitely was not at 6 at all. I been trying to get the pH up in my soil but nothing is working and I don’t want to just buy pH up at the moment.! I also have a grow tent which it outgrew so I’m waiting for a new one.

Select the 3 dots, then the flag option. No worries. If it was a mistake. There is a time limit for editing. Just looking out for you.

I pushed the three dots but on my end all I got was a bookmark and share option… :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

Mistakes happen. Tag anyone if you need anything.
Plants look great! Happy growing!

I’m just looking for advice that’s all😅 sry

What kinda of water are you using

I always have to add ph up to my nutrients

Not sure but I know it the pH is 7.1 so I usually bring it down to about 6.2 6.3… but now I haven’t been using anything in my last couple of waterings and the pH only goes up a little bit. It was 5.2 now they all read about 5.5 after I feed them yesterday.

When I add nutrients to my water it all levels out to 6.2

What ph meter do you have, and have you calibrated it

I calibrated when I first got it with the little packets it gave me but now I ran out of those so I’m not sure how to calibrate :sweat_smile::thinking:

I made the same mistake buying that meter, you should look at spending a few more dollars on a better one, ph is super important. If you buy the ph up and down kit it comes with a little test kit , I used to double check my meter to make sure she was still on

Ok, I knew I should have gotten the other one. Well it’s my first time an I had gotten everything cheap until stuff actually started growing. I didn’t think I would get this far lol I’m still learning, trial and error I guess. But THANK YOU, I will definitely be getting a better one.

All good, gotta start somewhere, like I said I did the same thing, look into a ppm meter also, those you can go cheap on . I didn’t spend much on my second ph pen 40 dollars. It’s a Phelp , but then you can buy the calibration solution 4.0 and 7.0. When I would make a full dose of nutrients mixed in purified water , I would have to add 5ml of ph up. When you figure out you meter situation u can go in at 6.8 till you start to see your runoff rise
