Starting this week like the previous one. I rinsed in week 5 (to adjust the soil ph) so once the pots dried I thought I'd give them a generous feeding. It went sideways and the day after the plants were showing serious deficiencies in P, Mag and Cal despite the feeding. So I had to rince once again with a very light nutrient content and I triple checked my soil Ph.
But overall they look quite good. Also 3 of the red poison are turning purplish around the buds ! Nice.
I really think using PH down (chloridric acid) is not helping with the microbial life of my soil. It seems it lost its natural buffer effect on the ph and I end up with recurrent nutrients assimilation problems. Next grow I'll try natural solutions (lemon juice, etc) to bring my water to the right Ph. What do you guys think ?

Hello la main verte ! Good job so far ! I was curious about that red poison, I wanted do grow some so i'll folow you to know more about that strain. I'm curious about your nickname too , are you speaking french ?

@Spinner972, Thanks dude. I am curious too, I want to see some red but I am not expecting too much. So far I'd say the strain do not need much nutes but is resilient despite my poor climate control. However that's only my second grow so I guess I lack comparisons. Yes I do, French grower here. Why ?

phosphoric acid is supposedly a better PH Down and is found in most hydro grow stores. the rust spotting seems to be from PH fluctuations in medium with sweet seeds genetics, it happened to me with RedPoison and Black Cream but not Bloody Skunk although all are treated the same. The genetics are strong vs nutrient imbalances but not against PH fluctuations. I also found with my PH pen that the bottom of the rootzone will have a very low PH by the time budding starts. Im not sure if it is just the way the plants grow normally causing such low drops (5,1) or if its from using PH'd nutrients... I always pour mine mixed at 5.8, tested and true.
Advanced Nutrients has a rootzone tribe of beneficial microbes/fungi/bacteria if you decide you need rootzone help ( voodoo juice, piranha, tarantula )

My black cream still hasnt changed colours yet.

@Hellhazard,My local grow-shop sold me some Hy-pro pH down. I just double checked the content and it is actually made of nitric acid. It should have been alright but since the first ph lock during week 5, the soils pH has been up and down for no reasons. Not fully controlling my climate (a tad too cold) surely didn't help also.

Thanks for the tips, next grow I'll buy a digital pH reader (much faster and easier to avoid pH fluctuations I suppose).

@Lamainverte, I purchased a BlueLab soil PH pen. It measures liquids and soil PH.. Its a bit more expensive but does both.
Also from what I have read, the plant itself will change the PH in the rootzone as it grows... More reading needed.

Your Garden is absolutely gorgeous! You're definitely prepping those Sweet Seeds Genetics well! Keep up the good work:facepunch:
