Why does the Ph keep fluctuating up or down every three days.

Its a drastic change from around 6.0 to start and fluctuates up or down by sometimes up to 6.4 or down to 4.3 its crazy.

So I grew the Homegrown Northern Lights #10 and Gelato this run. Some are taking longer to finish then others. Was wondering if this is normal. Is it a pheno thing? Do bigger colas take longer to finish? Could it be location in the growing space as my par falls off on the edges? Just curious, thanks!!

What’s up Nate and Kyle, just wanted to say thank you for being here to answer our questions. Do you have a personal organic compost tea recipe you would share with us? Also, should I stop feeding veg nutrients to my girls about 1 or 2 weeks before I flip the lights to kinda flush them out and get them ready for bloom? Thanks again guys :sunglasses:

I can recommend the white widow or blueberry x big devils form HGCC, they grow very easy, with or without training the plants develop and grow very nicely, very beginner friendly id say! i started them in pre mix soil with nutes, you can just ph water them for 3 weeks starting, then top dress to add more nutes a few more times and they are done in about 9-11 weeks depending.

No problem! Sorry I don’t think I mentioned those are for autoflowers not photoperiods! As a new grower myself and first time autoflower grower they are easy, exciting and fast growing with less maintenance than a photoperiod plant and faster harvest but obviously lower yields.

Greetings! Thank you for the great resources. I’m an outdoor grower up here in the Berkeley area, is there anything I can do to mitigate bud rot? What causes it? Caterpillars? We get a bit of fog as well.
I appreciate your help!

If there not life would you consider it living.
If outside yes, it must be kept active.
In a planter I think you might have your hand full keeping pots set a side to have cover crops. In the same sense as you would in a no till crop plan.
Some people take things to heart im afraid.

Started growing.

Our retail grow house hasn’t had medical product for almost a year - make too much $ in CO with Recreational to dedicate product to medical use.

So now we have flower but I don’t smoke.

What’s the best (easy, economical, efficient) to use the plant for baking edibles.
