hey love your work! read a lot of posts on this forum and you seem to be one of more knowledgable people out there, so i was thinkin 2 people with knowledge should be friends! lol im new on this forum but have years of experience but u can never know everything...
You alive out there buddy??? Your grow turned out great man congrats, I stopped by your thread and posted a link to my journal but I dont think you saw it. But anyway you gotta stop by my thread homey, 30 2 foot tall Chocolopes w/multiple tops on each makes for one helluva site ta see! Im starting week 7 tomorrow so harvest is right around the corner, stop by and holla at me.
hey bro, sorry it took me a minute to respond. I've never used Purple Maxx yet, so I can't tell you about that. I've tried Bushmaster at different times around the 12/12 switch and I think it's best to use eiter the last day of 18/6... or the very first day of 12/12. If you even wait a day into the 12/12 phase, some stretching will occur.
It will be ok to use the water for a few days. It is better than trying to adjust with no way to measure. You could get the water to a pH of 2 or something and kill the plants. They should be just fine. If you have nutrients and want to you could put a few drops of them in the water. Most hydro nutes have pH buffers to get the pH close to right without adjusting. I guess the same can be said for soil nutes but I don't know. And when I say drops... i mean a drop or two per liter, the clones don't need to many nutrients yet... just to make it through all the transplanting and new settings and stuff.
Distilled Water... why use it? Plants can only take a certain ammount of solids/ salts in their feeding water before they are overwhelmed. Different plants/ strains are different, but let's just say our plant likes 1200 ppm worth of 'stuff' dissolved in the water. Tap water starts off with a ppm of 100-300 I beleive depending where you live... it contains all sorts of stuff (chlorine, calcium, etc...). So you can add 1100-900 ppm worth of nutrients to bring the total up to 1200. If you start with Distilled Water it has a ppm around 0, so that you can add your nutrients all the way to 1200 ppm. Plus it is just cleaner than tap. I ended up getting an Reverse Osmosis filter and use RO water.
Also Tap water has to be left out to sit for 24 hr at least to let the chlorine evaporate... and I have cats... so they would be swimming in it if I had tanks of tap water sitting around.
