  3. The leaves on the red diesel are twisting a little, thats the only thing i've noticed so far and im wanting to say its cause of ph? I have a ph tester but it is one that u match colors, im going wed. to pic up a digital ph tester from lowes or HD.

    Wats up everybody, just a quick update, today is day 9 and they are looking really healthy, i have 2 (23 or 26) watt cfl's on each plant, i dont have a camera but there will be another update tomorrow on the 10th day, (pics everything 10th)

    edit: alot of change form day 6-10, you will def see something new going pretty good so far

    also i watered yesterday with a shitload of rain water, till there was a few drops o runoff, not enough to check ph though, i have a liquid dye ph tester and was wondering if i should get something else to use? when i water i have used distilled water/ tap water sitting out/ and rain water, and its usually all around the 7ph color,
  8. I'm using a similar setup and just starting out now, so I will be checking your journal to compare notes, and maybe cheat off you a little it. Wish I had access to Foxfarm products out here, but I'm gonna have to make due with what I got.
