    I've got a problem with mi SS. Two days ago, I noticed some decoloratión on the leaves, the worst ones are the ones arround the buds.

    10 day ago, I checked the soil PH, it was about 5. I added 3 coffee spoons of sodium bicarbonate to 7.5 liters of water, and I water my plant with it until yesterday. But the PH didn't change, still arround 5 or even lower.

    I think I was also over fertilizing. So yesterday, I flushed the soil with 5 liters of water, and then rewater it with 1/4 of the nutes I was using. I also added some crushed eggs shells to help with calcium and raising PH.

    Dolomit Lime is the answer, or Mearl, Egg shells take for ever, need to be in your compost, did`t you add some Lime to your super soil ?

    i add lime ot every batch of soil i mix up, granted ots only FFOF, Epsoma bulb tone and lime but i always make sure i put it in. if your concerned about the PH just transplant it into a bigger pot and use some soil amended with lime, might take a week to get situated in the new home but shouldnt hurt anything and is much more effective than trying to water in a buffer.

    Thank you for your answers. I'll try to get dolomit lime and give it to the plant on Sunday. Will it be too late? About transplanting, Super Skunk is supposed to have a flowering period of about 50 days, so I don't know if it's a good idea after 40 days of flowering.

    just give it a top dressing before you water next time, a few teaspoons on top of your soil before you water, will works fast and bounce the PH to around 7 (Neutral) I do it a few times doing flowering even tho I also add some in my SS mix tho I use Mearl from Plagron (Mearl = Oceanic Lime full of trace elements beside the calcium)
