    I still have a quart of synthetic cal/mag to use up, will it hurt anything?

    IMG_1237.jpg IMG_1238.jpg The only synthetic i like is the elastic in my underwear! So i'll leave that one alone.
    As previously mentioned, im in 15 gal pots, and at the start they got 1 1/2 gallon each and since then they get A little over a qt once a week, im sure that will increase as they grow. I like the water retention im seeing in the large pots.

    This meter is the best ive seen, amazon and under $30 if i remember correctly. Im not sure how accurate the ph side reads, i didnt buy it for thet but the moisture meter is very easy to use and i have complete confidence in it. Them 15s are tight in the white house from a "just lift it to see if it needs water standpoint."

    I have a quart left and don't know anybody else growing.
    I had about 1 quart run off from all 8 after watering measuring 6.3 pH and 1100 ppm
    I'm in a bit of a quandry as to what to feed the next batch coming up.
    But I have time, some synthetics to use up.

    Both grows are packing it in. I thought it would be more obvious grouped with the previous pictures. See top pics #98 and #99 ... this is truly pathetic. I'm going to watch a horror movie where people get slaughtered instead of plants.

    By gar, I think they might make it. The bigger pots are just the all purpose organic bag, RO water and I dumped my last batch of tea a week ago.
    2nd picture a tad closer, you can see different node lengths (rough start)
    Would you trim these?
    I'm carrying on with just with RO water, 5.5 runoff 900ppm (do I try and pH?)
    tea again in another week 100_0225.JPG 100_0227.JPG

    they look pretty good yet I clobbered my microbes with synthetic cal/mag
    small wonder I screw this up... whaaaa? are they feeding on the dead microbes?

    dammit, I see why duck sez so little... how did I miss "organic cal/mag"? I glossed over it thinking I had cal/mag I wanted to use up (I have an unopened bottle, msg me, pay shipping, it's yours if you're a member I've locked horns with :) I have other hydro stuff too.

    I'm a Jeff Lowen... convert. Going organic so re-doing the rooms, I started another thread in room design called "bed" gardening, thanks all who chipped in here!!
