I started germinating Fast Buds - Fastberry x 3 and Royal Queen Seeds - Diesel Auto x 1 on 5 June and as of 8 June, only 2 Fastberry are in soil and have popped their heads out. This grow is different as I'm going to be using Jiffy pots for starting them instead of putting them in their final pots once they sprout. I have seen it done (transplant) with Auto's so I'm hopeful. I am a little confused on what my PH level should be as people have been running between 5.7 and 6.7 for FB strains. I am shooting for around 6.2 PH. I am running Fox Farm Coco Loco soil in 5 gallon air pots. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
10 June: Well it will be Day 2 and all seems well so far, haha. I have 1 more Fastberry and a RQS Diesel Auto still in soil trying to germ.

11 June: Gave all 4 young ladies a root drench with Mykos WP.

Grow Questions
Tophat week 1 started grow question 4 years ago
I am running Fox Farm Coco Loco soil in this grow. What should my PH range be? The reason I am asking is I see a few successful grows with PH ranges in soil from 5.8 to 6.5 for Fastbuds strains. I am definitely confused as to what to keep my range at.

You are using a soil mix, meaning that it has organic matter, as such you should keep your pH between 6.0 and 7.0, 6.5 been the sweet spot, regardless if it has a bit of coco or not (which you do).
When you are using soil less media, which is plain coco, or coco with perlite, or some other mix with no organic matter, then the pH you need is lower, between 5.5 and 6.5, 5.8 been the sweet spot in this case.
With me so far? as long as you keep your pH between 6.0 and 7.0 you'll do fine,

@Tophat You're doing fine, since the ideal pH range for soil growers is 6.0 - 6.5. Keep up the great work and happy growing! :facepunch:
