My question is regarding watering the plants with different PH levels. Let me explain: Some grows I will use a 5 gallon bucket and set the PH at lets say 6.5 then all the plants get 6.5. Some grows especially with some strains I will water the 6 plants with 4-5 single gallons each gallon varying in PH levels from 6.2-6.8, my question is does the plants react differently if it gets water with 2-3 different PH levels at one time ww know its good each watering to fluctuate the levels so the plant can absorb all minerals needed, can it react to PH fluctuations during the same watering?
That's an interesting question, can I ask what you are smoking? Actually I noticed a difference and thats why I started mixing my stuff in a 6 gallon portable washer. Once I started doing that the PH and PPM were the same from top to bottom. I think an auto feed system does the same thing
PH can definitely be experimented with. TBS... I loved Sub and CPW's take on this subject ! I've grown a shitload strains maybe 200 plus, and honestly I never really tried to match a strain to a certain PH . I would tend to think that Cannabis needs it's PH to be within a certain range, and not that specific, to where it would matter. That is just my opinion . I almost forgot, your waters PH is important, but like SUB mentioned, the PH of your substrate is just as or more important. It can be a balancing act between the two.
I came back to read your replies again because I got the one off again and I like what your throwing down about the soil ph and I also believe I have not been drifting it far enough one way or another I could also write down each time exactly what ph I set the last feed at.
I would imagine doing multiple levels at the same time would average it out. What I do is just get it 5.5-6.2 if it's in between there it's good. ph matters but I have never noticed a difference when keeping it at a specific level. I like to do the method with minimal effort that's how I get the best results is by giving the plants less love lmao. Obviously I do training methods of course but I neglect watering at the beginning on purpose so the roots will spread in search for more water.
