  1. These plants are autoflowering feminized afghan kush.
    Started on February 11th so they are over 60 days by now.
    They are yellowing and curling.
    Using organic soil with perlite.
    Just checked the ph of soil and it's 7.6 :( what's the best way to fix this. I have the ph up and ph down kit.
    And do y'all think this could be the problem?
    Shouldn't they be close to done ? Like I said , idk what I'm doing lol

  2. What are you using for nutrients?
  3. Fox farm tiger bloom
    I've been reading a lot of different posts and I'm wondering if it's time to flush or cleanse them?
  4. they are far from done. keep blasting them with all the light you can till the bud have over 50% red hairs and are fat and frosty.

    It isn't going to matter which one you're using because your plant isn't going to absorb the nutrients with a pH that high.

    Get a gallon jug or a two liter. Add several drops of pH down (acid), Shake up the bottle and test the water. In this instance, you're going to want your water very acidic, at like 5.0. Since your soil is very alkaline (7.6) you have to balance it out with something very acidic. Understand?

    The end result, you want your soil or your water runoff to measure 6.0 - 6.5.

    You can flush through as much water as it is going to take to balance that soil. 7.6 is VERY high.

    Once you get your soil where you want it, continue adding pH balanced water at 6.0 - 6.5 for your regular watering cycles and feed using tiger bloom at full strength.
