    how do you determine the proper ppm for each plant?

  • No2TheNWO 1 year ago

    I strongly don't recommend pouring your ph test fluid in the water your using to grow.

  • Jeremiah “Primordial Pedagogue” Langston 1 year ago

    You Ph adjust your water after you add nutrients… The nutrients solution may be acidic or basic, and will drive changes in the PH of your substrate… It's pointless to Ph adjust prior to adding all of your nutrient constituents.

    I personally would always ph after nutes go in think most people would agree no disrespect on what your at lol

    advice: never pour the water you're testing back into your resevoir, don't use your resevoir to rinse things, and if you're making a video about phing water don't show the vile over an orange bucket, it would've made sense to hold it over the white counter top to show the color indicating the ph. another note, don't mix GH nutes at full strength until your girls are about 18" or taller or you will end up burning them.

    thanx bro … very informative

    The only thing I saw is that each nute wasnt mixed individually. There also wasnt enough time in between each additional nutrient. I was always taught to mix each nute, stir, wait a minute or 2, then add the next one to ensure each is dissolved properly. One more thing is that i found it a waste of pH solution to check it before AND after. The end result typically is what you want, so ive always waited until after my nutes were added to adjust the pH. this is simply to save pH solution though. helpful video for beginners for sure.

    mix it up here, I have this kitchen spatula or spoon…. lololololol

    dont check your PH till after you add your fertilizer cause it will go up or down some times depending on what type you use.

  • 1vrsc 1 year ago

    Adjust PH after you add nutrients. Adding the nutes changes the PH. I have found my tap water a bit high (7-8) and adding the nutrients brings the PH down. He did not even check the PH after he added the nutrients.

  • John Chisholm 1 year ago

    can you ph your solution at the end of adding your nutrients to the water or do you have to ph the water before adding the nutrients?
    thanks

    Maybe do the honourable thing and delete vid. Glad I read comments.

  • Will nonya 1 year ago

    So how long dose a bucket of mixed nutrients like that last? one week? Two weeks? a couple of days?

  • curly sue 1 year ago

    Is that tap water in the bucket? any recommendations on where to find/buy RO Water? I heard Wallmart might sell it there's not one even close to me. Is there a Recipe on the back of the nutrients bottles on how to achieve the right mix for different size containers right? I will be using Mason jars for now, since I'm new and don't want to construct a big hydroponic garden yet at least until I have perfected my growth method. Great vid tho!

  • chandra0102 1 year ago

    Adding nutrients can change the PH value of the water;  so, it's better to check and adjust the PH value AFTER you have added the required nutrients.  .
