Tophat 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,

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!
