    Maintaing your Soil in a perfect ph and moisture is important if you want your plants to survive when your using synthetic nutrients to give you an outstanding product

    when i started growing as a youngster 3 out 10 seeds made it thru harvest the rest died during the veg cycle for no reason so an old timer told me did i check the ph of my water solution so i bought a ph meter and measured the ph of my water and it read out to be 8.9 that was way too high so my homie told me to use a teaspoon of lemon juice to bring down the ph but if you want to be more professional with it buy some ph up
    and ph down solution
    it will help you out in the long run think about it like this i would have had at least a 3/4 of a pound if i used a ph meter and ph solution for my first harvest.so never take for granet the importance of your waters ph.use the ph up and ph down when need dont use it so consitantly unless your using chemicals remember 1 ml a gallon

    Another thing that will make your soil become acidic or alkaine is time itself, fertilizers break down, producing salts that cause the soil to become increasingly more and more acidic. Eventually, it uncontrolled, this could completely stunt the growth of your plants. you have to also ensure that the root system of your plant is draining all of the fertilizer from your soil which means you need to organize . ,
    you have to make a schedule every time you feed your plants nutrients
    like feeding it once a week or 2 a week which ever works with you to avoid salt build up( doesnt matter if your fertilizer says it wont burn your plants if its still need a schedule esspecially if its synethtic) great way to to get rid of salt build up is flushng



    Materials you will need
    1. Ph Up and Ph Down
    2. 3 in 1 soil tester (checks your soil ph, moisture so you dont over water and light your plant recieves
    3.flawless finish! this product assist by the flushing of accumulated nutrients in flowers and leaves. In various herb crops where taste and texture is important, Flawless Finish removes the chemical residue (Salt)giving a better taste. i personally love this stuff when used as directed also gives the grower control over the final appearance of dried flowers and leaves

    if you dont have ph up or down you could you lime (ph down) or ash mix with soil ( ph up )

    Attention Added info im sorry for the misunderstaning i was very tired i accidently posted it with out reviewing it. im currently testing out my content from my website on forums to see how the audience will react if its good info or not just cause i put affliate links doesnt mean i i dont care about the info i put out there .but anyways back to the subject high salinity in soil really does affect your soil unless you use organic nutrients when i say nutrients that cause salt build up i mean nutrients like miracle grow that are Soluble the process of treat the different stage <--(i forgot to add) when people hear salt they think sodium cloride.the salts in water that effect the soild your are a combination of sodium, potassium, magnesium, nitrates, sulfates ect one of the major source is irrigation water depends on the area you live in
    there are 3 differnt stages
    +saline soils - ph is usually under 8.5 and the is when the magnesium and calcium concentration is high
    +saline sodic soil- is when the concentration levels of salt, magnesium and calcium are way higher ph usually below 8.5
    and sodic soil is low on the other salts but is high in sodium very unstuible for growth and the ph levels can go from 8.5 to 12
    iimproving salt effected soils
    byy improving drainage
    =before leaching its best to clear thing up with chemical treatment
    =flush (is when you treat you plant with low salt water to move the salt below the roots
    =apply mulch to soil (woodchips or shredded wood if you can ) *Optional
    For salt sodic and sodic soil
    =treat the surface of the soil lower the dept of the soil witch means distance from top to bottom
    =apply admendments like lime to lower the ph or fertilzer mix it in
    =apply water to lower concentration move it thru the soil repeat the proccess make sure to not flood the water
    again guys i forgot to add extended details i was very exhusted when i postd it didnt mean to make it seem like i was just posting it to sell thing i have a job as an assistant gardner so i deal with these type of things on a daily basis

     
  2. so i take it your a caregiver or commercial grower ? over 60 plants ? at once experience ? i think all the info is bull shit . never once checked my soil ph and i ph my water never had an issue . many things posted above i do not agree on . i feed nutrients every watering never once a problem . do not listen to any info posted above . my advice . have mother plants alive here for over a year over 7 foot tall and there fed nutrients every watering no salt build up .
     
  3. Eh - I make my own organic soil and haven't checked pH in many years - my tap water is over 9... nor do I flush anything-

    These things are important for the Hydro crowd - not so much for organic gardening.

    With all due respect I would like to ask how long you have been growing? You made reference in your original post about growing when you were a youngster - your profile says you're 18, you just joined yesterday, and you have started 3 threads that are all instructional. A thread about pH in soil, a thread about proper lighting, and a thread about cloning. Do you have any pics of your most recent grow to show your expertise?

  5. Just a hot bed of misinformation here. Wasted 2 mins of my day reading this squabble.
    2 months to foliar feed?! I foliar feed at week 2-3ish. Looks to me like some sales person trying to sell that flawless finish product.

  8. and i also for got to change the title
     
  9. I'm not backing up OP's reasoning, but this is my view on it:

    pH is important, even for soil. Is it absolutely necessary to adjust the pH? Most of the time, probably not. But to think the pH of your water has no effect on the plant because it's in soil is rather silly in my opinion..

  10. i agree with you its does do damage over time
     
  11. when you try to plant seeds in the contaminated soil it makes it really hard to germinate
     
  12. I'll ask again.

  13. can we change the title to this post to total bullshit ?
     
  14. Or

    Op
    Please
    Go and do some research before you try and give advise on growing cannabis
    people may believe you and ruin their crops.
    Maybe it is just a language miscommunication

  15. im not gonna give away that type imformation for legal purposes and cause i dont like posting pics and bragging cause you never know whos watching whos able to see and track your ip im not gonna burn out my place like that i dont need to prove anything ,cause my age shouldnt matter lets just say long enough to learn from many mistakes still learning in my eyes not every ones a master until they fail enough to know what not to do in ever criteria. i honestly i dont mean to give you attitude or sound like im going off on you. im giving you respect cause you gave me respect im just telling it from point of view
     
  16. Ph of the soil should never be changed drastically especially with ph up and down. After messing around with pro mix and fox farm I'm switching back to no till and super soil. . Im dealing with a alkaline soil in one of plants that's now caused a zinc lockout. Tried to fix it but that only cause ph fluctuations. Could have avoided all of this by sticking with what works.... Now my harvest will suffer. Lucky for me, just the home harvest.

    You really need to understand what you're talking about before doing right ups like this you can really duck up your soil by messing with ph.

  17. I agree
    When growing in a stable organic soil
    PH should almost never come into play
    If you are feeding chemical nutes to soil
    Than the PH will most likely change depending on what the PH of the nute mix is going in
     
  18. yea i get you but theres parts were i wasnt very specific but at the end of the line every one just wants something better and its that dession you decide to make to avoid making the same mistake what really takes the bacon yea your better off going all organic ,synthectic nutrients are really unpredictable i notice
     
  19. Guys jumping down his back about pH'ing soil, saying you don't need to pH soil when your grow pure organic. Well he is talking about using bottled nutrients so obviously he needs to pH his water everytime. He didn't do a "How to grow organically" write up.

    Regardless, OP keep working on your writing/guide skills, this write up needs a lot of work.
     
  20. thanks for the feed back , also thanks for backing me up dude
