So I'm in the process of setting my tent up for my first indoor grow! Super exciting times ahoy! Finally the tent is up and lightproofed, the electrical side of things is all G timers of lights, heating and cooling all g, ventilation and carbon filter installation complete. Things seem to be doing what they should when they should! Excuse all my rambling on
Z point is..
I want to add a reservoir system before I begin the grow but water PH is an issue
We have a water tank here we pay for it to be refilled. Thinking could it be something to do with that? We just got a refill and the PH readings went whacky since! Bouncing between high 16's to high 17's and non reactive to the PH up down solution. 🤔 Is the tester itself giving bad readings? (brand new but cheap) Or is it the water and if it's the water can I fix it and how so please! 🙃
@noni_growsweed92 That is insane... I have never heard of a ph that high. I thought it only went to 14... I am definitely am not one of the experts on this forum as I am a newbie too and having ph issues myself but am curious to see what these guys think... But my gut says that ph meter may not be working correctly.. 17 is like lava
@wanderluster How great is this forum for this reason! There's always new topics that come up that get you thinking and asking more questions and learning all the time, everyone is encouraged to engage with each other, it's awesome, makes newbies want to come out of their shell and gives people confidence to ask questions, so many wins in finding this forum some really inspiring people and grows on here it's the BEST! Maybe my Meter is broken, maybe I'm broken and just didn't use it right 🤣
@noni_growsweed92 hahaha.... listen, bro. When I first came on here a few months ago I was a first time grower with a completely schwazzed plant which is a super advanced technique and, well, I am anything but super advanced because I tried it on my first grow That is what prompted me to join this forum embarrassed as I was but immediately guys were helpful and encouraging and told me what I will tell you know, we have all screwed up ourselves and the only way to learn and grow is to share and this forum is the best place for that!
@wanderluster had to look up what a schwazzed plant was.. thanks for sharing that with me.
Yep... also me... ☺ had no idea that those leaves played such a specific role.. got a little defol cray in the tent for sure myself, couldn't help it they were enjoying it I felt they kept booming afterward, so why not honestly it's hard to know if your doing something correctly if your just surfing youtube for videos your going to get all different opinions on what works, people only do what works best personally for them, in the end you gotta start somewhere and you will find your own style of what works along the way.
Now I found Percys I have teachers all around me some new role models and plenty of inspirational grows to study, all of that combined with the guides and threads etc on here your given a pretty comprehensive grow guide by joining. Not saying I won't try find other resources for information.. But I'm sayin Percys grow room became my go to place overnight for all things weed it really does have everything you need all in the one place it's friggin awesome.. it's my weed bible, hehe 🤣
Yeah man... hahaha. I know. I did exactly what you did. Watched videos, looked online, saw a bunch of tutorials and boom, thought I was an expert and stripped my plant butt naked.. lol. Good times. Glad to have you here bro
@noni_growsweed92. I spent a good year collecting info from YouTube, just confused me in the end, and I think there is some haters on there giving bad advice. This is definitely the place to be for all growing subjects, cannabis information and all kinds of decent/confusing conversations...
Tbh, I’m a bit of a backgrounder but I love checking in every day!!
@noni_growsweed92 did they send you a pack of calibration solution when you bought the meter? if so use it and try to calibrate it. most of the cheapies ive gotten will come with the cal soulution and a small screw driver to make the adj
Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.
@littleg ideally we would all buy premium everything If we could wouldn't we lol sometimes we have to cheap out it happens lol.. do you recall what attracted to you to essentials PH meter? I will check them out thank you
@noni_growsweed92. I’d be on blue lab if I had the money!! My local hydro store has been really helpful, prices the same as internet, and I can always go back for advice. They are pretty mainstream in the uk I believe.
I started my growing on shoe string budget, it is definitely easier when you have reliable equipment, ph, extractors, timers and lights. I do worry about the load I’m putting on 2 mains sockets
