    p.h my water to 6.6...lower my p.h with lime juice...yes lime juice:Dworks a treat not tried apple cider vinegar yet but my tap water is around 10.8/10.9 most days so i need to find the cheapest method to bring it down..

  15. Hey Reefer, your plants are looking good just keep an eye on your PH problems. How did you manage an 11.0 PH? For soil it your PH of the runoff water should be between 6.3 - 6.8 to prevent nutrient lock-out. Also do you have any pics of your Flouro cooltube?

  16. 11.0 comes from my tap m8:D lmao...
    an yea got them pics for ya

    my fluro works better than a 200w envirolight...
    i used 2 have 2 200w envirolights but they suck so i got a 250w hps
    an a cool tube///

    the pic of the light bulbs are the lights im goin to install when i upgrade my grow;)

  17. i love how we both use videos to hold up stuff in our grows:p
  18. lol even though they dvd's:D
    but yea they good cause i can move one case at a time an the plants stays close to the light..
  19. i dont have that many dvds..all mine are burned lol
    but i had alot of old video tapes and thats what ive been using for my veg light
    ..i used to use them to hold my main plant closer to the light but i have books now haha
    crazy thing is, i have this small swag plant, two days later i had to add another tape :0
