Question about Ph'ing Your Pre-Mixed Nutriented water?
    #571074 - 07/10/11 04:28 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Ok let me brake it down for you. I want to know When I add my Vegging nutrients to my Distilled water do I then Check the PH and Add the PH up or down Depending on what it is? Or Do I adjust the PH Of the Distilled water Before I add the Nutrients?

And with Some Rooting Liquid When Is the best Time to add it To improve root growth.

And Bat guano is all Nitrogen right? Why would I use that If my vegging nutrient already has Alot of N Including P K

Thank you


Critikus.

Distilled water should always have a pH of 7.

You add your nutrients before adjusting the pH of your water.

Add your nutes in then test for pH. Ajust as needed.

Can't help you on the other. Only used Fox Farm nutes and feeding schedule.

Adjust the ph after nutrients are added.


If your nutrient mix is already high in nitrogen then don't use the guano esp if it's high nitrogen guano.

here's a problem. I have the ph testing solution you add to a little water. when I put in my nuts they contaminate the mix and I always get some marsh/swamp water look to it. so, until I get a testing wand I guess I'm screwed into testing then adding nuts, and just hoping for the bast I guess.

Do what?
The ph testing drops have a little test tube to test in, don't add drops to your entire nute mix.

What nutes are you using and how much per a gallon of water are you using?

You dont add the nutes and water in the PH test kit dude, you mix up your nute solution as per the instructions and test THAT water.

Your post above made it sound like you are mixing water and nutes IN the test tube and adding the PH test liquid to that solution.....and good gawd I hope Im wrong!

im really curious about this too

a few of my flowering nutes REALLY cloud up my water

so much that the dropper bottle ph tester isnt visible when i test after adding nutes

i know how much the bucket takes to balance the ph, so i start with that

and i know some of my nutes bring the ph up while others bring it down

and ive been playing around with that, good green healthy plants.

but how do you ph test something you cant see the PH of?

You bite the bullet and get a digital pH meter.  They're fairly affordable these days.

:thumbup:

As far as the cloudiness, you might want to look at what you are adding together. When I was able to produce, I noticed that some of my nutes, when mixed at certain concentrations and at certain ph levels, would cause something to percipitate out(AKA make them unavailable to your babies) or when i mixed with an aluminum spoon, stuff would stick to it or fall out. If they are healthy then I guess that its not that big of a deal, but you could be wasting your materials. I was an organic gardener. Everything seem to be caused by my potash and the fucking spoon. Something fun to try to figure out.
