If you get the Jellas PH meter I linked, you can get by with just bottles of Up or Down. And for a rule of thumb, I think it is 1cc/ml of Up/Down for each Gallon of water you want to move 1 full PH point. So to take 4 gallons of water .25 ph down, would take 1cc/ml. Or to move 1 gallon a full 1 down would take the same amount 1cc/ml. That's not a hard rule, everybody's water is slightly different, but it's a good rule of thumb. If you are going to be doing a lot of nutrient/additive measurements I highly recommend some blunt tip syringes as well. If you do use the syringes, label that shit
Thank You AgentPotHead! Really informative for a noob like me. Will save what you have imparted and practice once I get one.
In the mean time, 4 of 5 turned out to be males!!!
Budget is really tight and I only have one of those small inline can filters for exhaust which I know might have caused them to be males.
my humidity is really high as well up to 80 and left with one female which I hope I could save. Due to budget, would I rather invest first with those small electronic dehumidifiers which is way affordable now than a proper exhaust 6inches fan with carbon filter?
Months off hardwork gave me 80 percent males :(
My feminized seeds are on its way but I know I have to fix my 2 x 4 tent first.
What remedies can I do for now if I can't afford those nice dehumidifiers and that proper exhaust?
Thanks in advance!
