    I stayed close to 5.8 for 30 days during veg, everything went fine, then the yellow tips appeared and the yellow shoots so i tried to lower the PH so the plant can uptake some Zn... I`d still want to fix it back my girls back to the original form. Thanks for the chart.
    EDIT: what if i feed Potasium foliar? And i keep the PH to 5.8, do you think that would make things better?
  4. Foliar feeding is not recommended for K .

    But if i add potasium will the Zinc be absorbed if i keep the PH to 5.8? 
    Or is there anything that i can feed foliar to the plant so Zinc gets in? 
    Or should i try feeding the plant for one day at PH 5.4-5.5 and for another 6 at PH 5.8?
  6. Keep your ph as close to 5.8 as possible, and you can always foliage feed your plants with any fertilizer for micro deficits or maintenance. Zinc is needed in such minuscule amounts that Zinc is absorbed well though spraying foliage, but make sure you don't spay under hot lights. Best temp for micro foliage spraying is 70 degrees.
