    One aspirin tablet does not drop PH much at all. Barely noticeable, but you always adjust PH after everything is mixed anyway. Something else is causing it, unless you are using lots of aspirin. Even so, PH adjustment afterwards straightens it out. I have used as many as 3 tabs per gallon with no problems. Ideal PH for coco is 5.8. PH normally rises a bit afterwards. Unless you are using "time release" or "coated" aspirin which you shouldn't be. Cheap, generic, plain, uncoated aspirin.

    take a screen shot of your screen (prnt scrn button then paste it into the paint program) and then crop it.


    also, what kind of microscope did you buy?

    It's pretty easy to bypass the thermister, I soldered a wire to each end of the thermister thereby cutting it out of the circuit. My heater just runs and runs and I was able to achieve over 120 degrees. I have ran some tests heating up some leaves in a mason jar in a pan of hot water and killed all mites, don't know for sure if the eggs are affected, I saved the leaves in a jar and will check later to see if any eggs develop.
    I'm so glad you put up the link to this thread at GP and I'll report here and at GP after I turn up the heat on these buggars.
    Thanks

    The tank was pretty close to empty and it's all done now... hopefully it buys me enough time to figure out how to bypass the thermostat on the electric space heaters so the next time won't be so extreme.

    I still have what looks like fruit flies... if I can get it to the 65 day mark (< 2 weeks), I will shut it all down for a serious douche and change of operation. I will be burning all the clones in veg and basically starting over. Hopefully I can salvage the seedling LSD and Acapulco Gold... they're small enough that I can spray or immerse them completely.

    For weeds, this shit can sure get complicated.

    peace
