Digital Ph and TDS meters are so dirt cheap online these days. You can get everything you need to detect an accurate current PH and PPM. With the PH up and Ph down to adjust for under $20. That's all you have to do is adjust the nutrient solution PH for a better, bigger more potent yield. I really just wanted to make this thread active...........

That is my understanding as well. I've read (Herer or Rosenthal; I don't recall) that the herb may even be grafted on to a hop plant. :shock:
Beer AND a smoke?! :hump:
lol i read some hippies tried to do that without success , apparently they hops/cannabis are cousins
i have never really looked into it that deeply

recently i came across the way folk who make their own beer/ grow their own hops
dry their hops, those guys build some extravagant drying machines, there are similar things you can buy to dry buds
i found it interesting anyway, i didn't realise growing hops was as passionate for some as weed growing is for us


peace

I lived in hop growing county once..the aroma of hops and the herb, fresh, are very similar.
And yeah, home brewers get right in to every aspect of their art; we're similar communities :)
And didn't stoners get called "hop heads" once upon a time?....(:

Hey guys quick question are you familiar with the ph test kit that uses the orange drops and the little vial, add 4 drops shake and check color? If so I was checking my water before I fed my girls and brain farted and dumped the test water with the 4 drops in it into my batch of water with nutes for the girls. Do I toss it or am I ok?

Hey, I used to use the drops and the small vial. Runs out fast when your amateur at it. 11.99 for digital meter on newegg/w free shipping.
You should deff throw that shit out, and remake your nutes. Don't forget to add some superthrive or H202 :P

I have an electronic pH meter and that thing was garbage and broke within the first week so I just went and got those drops as a temporary means to stay on top of my pH

How do you break a ph meter lloll ? There so much more accurate than test strips, but good to know your able to get on top of it without one so, good deal.

Good job also on dropping the green drops in your solution. I never even managed to do that.

Well to start you might want to ask the company whose pH meter it was why they sell such a piece of shit because I didn't break it it just started acting funny and took a shit on me, and to your comment about dropping the tested water into my feed....it was late I was tired and just brainfarted lol

Ive been using nitric acid to bring the ph down . . . any one know if this is good or bad.

It works for me in lowering the ph although it is a nasty chemical to work with.
I would be careful in flower, could add to much nitrogen....

I GUESS I JUST COULD REALLY USE SOMEONE WHO CAN TELL ME WHAT I NEED FROM WHAT I ALREADY HAVE, JUST A SIMPLE BREAKDOWN OF THE WHOLE PROCESS ....IF ANYONE has a few spare moments to help
