Hi guys. I am reading and seeing on YouTube a lot of conflicting information regarding PH. I am growing in Sohum Organic Living Soil with an Amnesia XXL Autoflower. I understand that the microbes etc are supposed to help regulate what the plant needs at any given time that it asks for it. Some say there no need to PH and others say that is wrong, you do have to. Can anyone help with this please?
okay, hello everyone. my first post to coincide with my first grow. I am growing in Allmix and before getting started I checked the PH value of the Allmix. 1. using Allmix +distilled water gave me a reading of 5.5 2. Allmix +tap water (which I measured at 7), gave me a reading of 5.5 again. according to my research so far, there is no need to adjust organic prepared soil PH levels as they are meant to adjust to nutrient take up by the plant of themselves. Is this correct given the results above or given the results (which I have checked about 3 times) should I up the PH? If so can the PH be increased using chemical additives to the water and if yes can this be added with any nutrients that are being added to the water or would this causes problems? Any replies greatly appreciated. thanks.
some1 posted a topic in Guerrilla Growingjust had a few questions about soil amendments before i go buying ingredients... last year I dug holes into a new plot, using chicken pellets, FBB, Bonemeal and SOP. the nutes have been sat under a hedge in storage boxes over winter... are these still usable? or will they have gone 'off' by now? and if i wanted to go down a more organic route, could I add: kelp/neem/crustacean meals, volcanic rock dust, gypsum, rice hulls & ecothrive charge to the current soil mix and let that cook instead of using these animal based ferts? thanks in advance ppl!
