Just checking in here with a new Grow Journal update and wanted to send out some questions on nutrients to the ILGM hivemind.
First, here are my baby girls- had some stretch in the 1st week so switched to a 600w Bloomspect LED and moved them into their new 24x48x60 grow tent home! I have 3 Critical Mass Autos and 3 G13s, in organic soil blend, running 18/6 600w LED, temps running 78-83 with 40-50% humidity.
Edit: one more photo without blurple light:
I’m noticing that the 1st leaf set on one are growing bent downwards a bit. It’s not wilt- not sure what’s going on there. But they’re growing well- added soil after getting a little bit of stretch when I was using a weaker light, and added some peat moss because my PH has been HIGH- like 7.3-7.5.
As far as Ph questions- my distilled water is running 6.2-6.5. I made a peat moss slurry that tested at 5.6
and have added that, but it hasn’t come down a whole lot yet. I was trying to adjust naturally without having to use PH down, but I ordered some just in case. Anyone have any other suggestions to bring the Ph down naturally?
And for nutes- when is a good time to start? I was looking at the Fox Farm trio- the Big bloom, Tiger Bloom, etc, but not sure if they’re too young at a little over 2 weeks. Also, how often to flush? Also any other recommendations for natural/organic fertilizers or CalMag? (Not giving calmag yet- for in the future if needed)
Thanks for the help- this forum has been great!
