  4. Yeah I've had success with it in the past but I've also had a lot that didn't crack.
    I soak them and I also have a clever little trick with a match box to make the shell a bit softer lol.

  7. Awesome awesome awesome! I couldn't make my mind up of how I wanted to start my grow...this just did so I thank you for posting this and explaining everything so good. I do have a few questions.... Are you saying you put the seed in the rapid rooter and then place the rapid rooter directly into the 1 liter air pot with the 50/50 mix or no? Start it in a smaller container? I was just in about every hydroponics store in my area and I bought the MB, sm 90, silica blast, ph up and down kit with the same test kit you have in the picture and a thermometer/humidity digital reader. I was looking at the coco coir in every store and they are all so different, solid blocks, coco chip blocks, and about a dozen different bagged coco, one that caught my eye said neutralized ph, less salt, cal mag added and all this other stuff, I just don't know what one to get haha all the bags look so animated and crazy. I'm going to buy the same light you have, hopefully 2 if I can swing it. Again thanks for this post!
     
  8. Thanks for the compliment.
    Yes.
    They are quite expensive - there are a lot of good options out there. Good luck. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

  12. Hey Mick!
    Thanks for these very nice thoughts about coco! This thread is a real blankfiller!
    I have this one to ask; do you test the ph of your runoff? If so, how? Do you use the drop kit? I also use drops for testing ph, but the runoff is usually too discolored for that. Or is it still possible to test this way? Newbie alert! :wave:
    Thanks,
    K
     
  13. why are you in the kitchen? wheres your wife?.... get your life together bro

  14. I test the pH of the run off maybe once a week and even though there is slight discoloration in the run off - the drops still work fine for me. Thanks for your interest and good luck with your grows. :thumbsup:

  17. Which is more important to monitor on PH? PH level going in or PH level coming out? I get my PH to 6.0 going in but it pretty consistently comes out at run off at about 6.5 to 6.7. One thing I have found is I usually mix my nutes 5 gal at a time. When I mix them to PH 6.0 today then test the PH of that same batch a couple days later it goes back up to about 6.5.... 6.5 is what the PH level is that comes out of my faucet
