    See, with synthetics, you have chelated (salt-bound) nutrients that need to be in a proper pH range for the plant to take up. With organics, you don’t feed the plant, you feed the soil. The soil should contain microbes, mycorrhizae, and optionally, trichoderma. And the bacteria eats and decays the organic matter, shitting out what the plant can take up, regardless of pH.

    pH only matters in organics if there are inhospitably wide fluctuations that would cause root issues anyway. Think 7 for your basic limit and below 5.5-5.8 for your acidic limit. Maybe even down to 5.0, but I’d try to avoid going that low.

    for some reason every single type of water I try (spring, tap, filtered tap, purified) has a ph of over 7. That’s y originally I was lowering the water’s ph.

    Don’t worry about it. I think your pH meter is just off. Just water normally. More basic is better than too acidic.

    Ok and u think those white spots will go away if I water normal or do I need to do something else to revitalize them

    I think those white spots are just drips/splashes of nutrients you got on the leaves. That’s what they look like, anyway.

    I don’t think that lowest leaf will recover, but yes, water normally and the plant should recover.

    And the yellow leaf in the first pic?

    That, I suspect is from the pH fluctuation. That leaf won’t get better, but it shouldn’t get worse. Just be sure to use regular water to lightly flush that pH solution out.

    I mean, maybe they have some out there. GH makes a GO Box (General Organics.) That said, I stand by the quality of Roots Organics for 20 bucks more. Comes with dry nutes, liquid nute teas, and an inoculant.

    These are my current plants, 2 weeks 3 days old. I use Roots Organics’ Master Pack, which adds a Veg Booster and a Bloom Booster. I also have some pics from my last cycle if you’d like to see.

    Look at the capitate-sessile trichomes in the last two pics! They’re still in early veg/late seedling stage!

    These were my cycle last Fall/Winter, under 241w of COB, using only Roots Organics’ Dry Nutrients Player Pack.

    I’m not technically allowed, it’s just that necessity overrides legality at this point. But, yessir; right, you are!

    Actually, I lied. That was 2016. 2017 flew by so fast, it just seems like last year.

    Yes. That is worth every penny. Full-sized dry nutrients that will probably last you a year or more. I also use the 5mL Master Pack.
