Hydro stores will have as will most hardware stores in the garden section near where they keep the pesticides. :potleaf:

Update!
this is about 3 days into flowering, and I was about to start using fox farm nutes, but then I noticed about 4 lower fan leafs' tips got yellow and crispy. I researched it and it came up as n overdose or over watering every time..i watered h2o 2 times after the last update so im stumped. I know it can be ph (waiting for a ph meter from htgsupply right now), but I have no way to find out, and I used stirctly poland spring water the whole time.

Get the drops from the hydro store or a pool ph kit from the hardware store. Water the plants then check the ph of the runoff.



Myself I hate ph meters and just use these drops. Plus they are only about 6 bucks. :wink:

Dimo, looks like your water is probably about a ph of 6.4 according to This But I'm sure it varies a bit. But yeah, I would definitely pick up some drops while you wait for the shipment. Also, I would use distilled water before I used spring water.

Went to 2 little hardware store and Ace,  but they didn't have the drops. The package should be here monday and the yellowing has not increased any more since I watered 3 days ago. Im still not going to feed untill I know the ph..even though the girls are looking hella hungry.
The 5 ak48 seeds are almost done germinating, so I made a closet groroom for seedlings. Total of 4220 lumens in 1.5 x 1.75ft space. Good nuff?

Ok,the plant died in just a matter of days? I'm gonna have to say they were overfed. When you were suspicious of them being overfed you should have taken the chance and flushed them. That means if they were say in a 1 gallon pot then you pour 3 gallons of water threw it or 3 times the size of the pot.

Reason if they were overfed and not flushed then they just kept sitting in the hot soil frying.

Ooh..wow. I thought even if it was too much, I would wash it away by watering w/ h20.
I flushed the survivor just now, but it was never as sick, so I used about 1 1/2 galons. Is that enouph?

She actually looks better then yesterday. Also, I was about to throw my brf jars out when I saw 4 colonizing:)

Survivor might not survive after all. Lower leafs are yellowing and dieing rapidly; there has been almost no growth sinse yesterday, but I know that might be because of the flush...still, I only used 1.5 galons and the leafs are still suffering. So, flush again or wait?

When you flushed, how much water came out the bottom of the pots?

I'm glad to hear an experienced grow say that.  Meters stress me out, lol...

Also, have your pH drops arrived yet?

You need to flush more then, that's not enough IMO. I am not a soil grower, but I started in soil so have a little bit of experience so I may be wrong. But I personally, if flushing, would want at least 2-3 times the size of the container to actually come out the bottom of the pot.
If little to no water comes out when you flush, then you haven't really "flushed" anything out. Can you get some full plant shots and some close up of the leaves? But flush more first!

I also should mention that when watering, I always watered slowly until water started dripping out the bottoms and would continue watering a little while after that. When I first grew, I tried a few different methods and just saturating the soil and stopping before water came out the bottom I noticed problems arose quickly in those plants.

First Offence!
Yep I got bagged by undercover piggies
They wondered why I lauphed in their faces the whole time....shit youre probably wondering that. Well, my charges are:
Public nudity
Littering
Resisting arrest

Yep....took a shit outside, and refused to pull my pants up right away (btw I REALLY HAD to do it+was drunk). I am going to post the full halarious story, but not in this thread...
But dont worry I wiped before being manhandled to bookings....hence the resisting arrest. It was almost fun to get arrested for something non grug related. The dumb D's were soo siries about it too lol. "sir?.....SIR! What is going on here??" XD im shitin'
Gotta love good all american BACON.

the ph turned out to be 6.2. This is after the second flush, BUT, yesturday (the day after flush) it was 5ish o.o
I bought a bag of GH flower nutes, and will swich to that (starting at 1/2 strength), to see if Fox Farm was the problem.
Overall the lady's fine but lower leafs yellow and fall off exponentially. I will deffinetly post pics tonight, had a lot of shit to take care of lately....apparently 6 month probation + 36hr community service is a fit punnishment for pooping (resisting was dropped)

Have you been adjusting the ph of the nutrients before giving them to the plants. Your suppose to mix then adjust then water.

Shit master  :cuteshit:
