    the tips on my leaves are turning yellow and getting crispy but its not a heat issue, i am using flouros with basically no heat, and i thought it was nute burn for a while but i havent used any nutes in a long time, any other suggestions, could this be a ph problem? the plant seems to be growing fine still but a few of the leaves are having this problem

    what do u do about chlorine problems

    socom3riot Well-Known Member

    if ur using tap water, dont use it straight from the tap, let it sit out for a couple days to let the chlorine evaporate.

    What is the pH of the water you are feeding them, and what is the pH of the runoff from your pots.

    I dunno if its cuz im using the drops ph testing , but when I check the runoff from my soil , its showing as 6.0 or lower as a yellow color when I put the drops in. I even flushed it with like 5-6 times the water it could hold, and its still showing as extremely acidic.. think this is just because of something in the soil reacting with my drops? or do u think this is actually acurate showing its really acidic?

    24 hrs. is fine, but it should be in a pot or something with open surface area, not a milk jug or something with a small opening like that.

    You'll really get more answers and views if you start your own thread, and it's more polite to the OP of this one.
    For starters, 6.0 is not TOO far off what you want, and you don't say what you are flushing with.
    2 good things to add when you start your thread.:wink:
