Nothing fancy sir. Just standard issue PH up and PH down. I prefer the Cyco brand products because they're highly concentrated and you get more value for your money than most others. GH's ph up and down is heavily watered down. I have to use 10x the amount of PH up with GH's watered down bullshit versus Cyco's ph up. 3ML to a 32 gallon reservoir gets the job done with Cyco ph up. GH? Just squirt and squirt. Eventually you'll get it where you want itThank you. Very good info, I was asking about the actual chemical or product you use for pH adjustment of the nutrient solution.
My bad I wasnt clear but the info is a plus.
Getting back to the jack's and the poor flavor I experienced with my blue dream last harvest. It was not the jack's finish formula that caused the problem. It was dried too dam fast. The BD buds were the most dense and large of all my plants. That means they had a great deal more off gassing of chlorophyll than the smaller flowers from my other strains and humidity took such a huge dive they dried in 3-4 days. Usually it takes 6 or 7. As a result I think a lot of chlorophyll was locked in that did not have an opportunity to off gas. I recently just trashed boveda packs in another thread just a few days ago. I wound up ordering a 320 pack for $25 to see if I can save my blue dream's flavor. The reason I think this will be successful is because I just took a crispy dry bud of bd out of my storage container yesterday and popped it into a glass container with a paper towel soaked in lime juice and a few slices of banana separated by a piece of plastic. I came back 2 hours later. The bud absorbed so much moisture I had to use a grinder to break it up. And it was smooth. The harshness smoothed out. It was actually enjoyable to smoke. Still not smooth on the level of my other strains, but light years better than it tasted prior to re hydrating.
To add more evidence that the 7-15-30 did not cause this flavor problem I just smoked some small flowers that weren't quite dry yet. Certainly not crispy and the stems did not snap. It was basically the perfect consistency. And it was very smooth. My failure I believe was drying too fast and had nothing to do with the jack's. Smoking chlorophyll is not smooth. So I'll be placing all of the bd in a 5 gallon bucket with the 320 pack and a gasket sealed air tight lid on monday when it arrives. I'm hoping within 7 days it will have amply re hydrated the over dried flowers to a more appropriate and desirable consistency.
What caused this over drying shit is that we had a dramatic shift in weather patterns abruptly just as the bd went onto the net. It went from cool and humid (perfect for slow drying) to below 32 degrees and no humidity. Forced air heat kicking on dropping it even further. I saw 30-35% for days and the dehumidifiers just sat idle. This is a perfect example of how important drying is. Moving forward I will be purchasing a heavy duty humidifier to maintain the ideal drying humidity. It's a completely preventable problem and easily solved.
What lesson can be learned from this? Dry yo shit properly holmes If stems snap you've already dried too much. You will not achieve a cure of any kind. I'll be jarring just as the exterior of the flowers are slightly crispy and stems feel close to snapping. That's the perfect condition for curing and sweating the flowers. Snapping stems means your shit has dried to a crisp and then you're in my situation buying overpriced boveda packs. $25 for this dam thing. If it does not work to my satisfaction it will be returned to amazon as defective. I hate products that don't work as advertised, but everyone seems to really love the bovedas that find themselves in my situation. I know fresh leaves can be added to re hydrate but I do not have any available. My vegging plants just recently had pesticide applied so I cannot use those.
I'll report back in 10 days or so how the boveda pack worked on the bd.
