    To quote Cartman "..Oh God Damn it...."

    My tap water for some reason has a pretty regular fluctuation in ph. Now it is 6.5 and I am pretty sure I am getting lock out. I apologize for the HPS being on, but she is tied up because she is getting real big.

    The leaf that I took the picture looks to me like she has lock out. Am I correct?

    I did a flush last week, so I really dont want to flush again. I think I should get distilled water and finish her with that. She is in week 6 of flowering. What do you guys think?

    Godspeed

    She spent about a month of her life outside and was molested by insects. I spray about once a month when the lights are off and then follow up with a good water mist to get the fox farm "dont bug me" off her. I have lost seedlings in the past and a few plants; i am pretty sure my tap water is no good for growing. The PH now is 6.5 and it fluctuates regularly. I am going to switch to distilled. Since I flushed last week I fed 3 days ago with half strength botinicare pro bloom 1.5-4-5. I have let the pot dry out real good this time. Im not sure if I should flush again or just continue with the distilled. Any one have some ideas?

    I was thinking that too but she got a real good flush last week, and only one feeding wth half strength nutes since then. Im pretty sure my tap water sucks a$$.

    I had the exact same issues a few grows ago. I was not able to pinpoint the problem. I switched to RO water but the spots didn't go away and it was NOT pests.

    Thanks for the support. Its frustrating as hell. It has to be lockout. The small leaves around the buds are curling and a few seem to be drying up. It does have a little nute burn but not enough to hurt it. My only idea is low ph distilled water and keep going with the nutes. Maybe one more flush and then right away hit it with half nutes. "oh god damn it..." lol. oh wel

    That reminds me I was using Miracle Grow moisture control potting mix; could have been a combination of lockout and toxicity. Just tell your plants to "respect my authoriti!"

    I have had a similar issue with my BB mothers when they were young.Im not sure exactly what causes it but only the BB do it. I am finding BB a very strange out of norm type of plant to grow.Anyways are you adjusting your waters ph before it goes into the soil and checking the run off water that comes out??

    Hey Fletch. I have been pH'n before but not after a flush runs out. Can I use a simple litmus test? I am a little strapped for cash this next couple weeks; school taxes. Thanks for the advice.
