      @bearukc  Mmm... do you think that maybe ... as you put the tincture on the radiator it could be classed as being a low heat decarb?  "just a thought"    I have got the glycerine and am wanting to get a high proof alcohol so I can test both to see which will be best for my son.  Glycerine sounds more suitable as it just adds a sweetness to a drink but if son will be using an alcohol base it needs to be strong so that only a few drops goes under the tongue.

      Yeah suffering with  low PH because you've gone from hard water that has High PH buffer, takes a lot to drop it, to the opposite where you can't add to much nutrient or your get it quite acidic. One solution would be to add back small bit of tap water to raise the buffer and EC of the water but not to much as your mess your ratios up again, so what i resorted to doing was adding half cal/mag half tap to get a final EC 0.4. SO 0.2 of tap and 0.2 of cal/mag. i gave just tap until day 10-14 as i noticed 0.4 including cal/mag tended to be to much for seedlings burnt them.   This was i got back from my water test   "you sent us some water to be tested, it only arrived yesterday (post office randomness) hence the delay in getting the results back to you, results are below values are in parts per million (mg/ltr) except pH which is of coarse in  the pH scale (-log of the concentration of Hydrogen ions if you ever wanted to know). Calcium............64 ppm Magnesium......6 ppm Sulphate...........4 ppm Alkalinity ..........280 ppm pH.....................7.45 This is a hard water. Magnesium levels are lowish (range from 0 to 50+ with usual range between 2 and 20) and when compared to the amount of Calcium an ideal ratio of Ca to Mg is between 2.5 and 4 to 1.if your food does not have sufficient Mg this may cause problems assimilating enough Mg (essential to chlorophyll as Fe is to Haemoglobin). If using our hard water soil food  with this water gives final values for Ca of 84 ppm and Mg of 28 ppm giving a ration of 3;1 which is good. When growing in soil I can see no other issues with this water.  "   In bold should explain why you noticing both N and mg which also look a lot alike.   I tried the Adding Epsom salts didn't work for me.  Worth a bash tho perhaps as a foliar feed.   My seedlings only just popped today and i will be using the Growers ark Soil hard water Kit as it's less of a faffing about and also solves the problems abet not organic but to me its all about end quality and i couldn't notice any difference myself using GA compared to the liquids organics like BB ultimately means i can spend more time on the actual plants and not worrying about ratios because some guy at GA has done it for me , and well its hes job he makes nutrients hes going to understand plant nutrient ratios better then i ever could.   I asked the same questions myself a few years back ,
