    Welcome to DUD's random question of the day.

    I've lost the little bottle from my PH test kit <insert cliche stoner comment>. How accurate do I need to be in replacing it? Is roughly 10ml close enough for an accurate measurement?

    Cheers gurus,

    Looks good if it is like GH drops. I wouldn’t go any lower but that is pretty much the color I like unless growing in peat. And I only use 2-4 ml. A drop per ml but I don’t think that is a hard standard. And 10ml is a lot imo.

    Thanks for the response Rakin, I'm growing in coco, I was aiming for about 5.8 - 6.

    Spring for some cash, like $20, and get yourself a PH pen tester, The drops are ok for fish tanks, but that's about it.
    What I would recommend is to get a combination tester that tests both PH and PPM/EC, which if your going to grow seriously, you will need.
    Good luck

    I’m going to say that’s a tad under 5.8. But I’ve had plenty that likes that color. I always look at mine under 4K led. 6 will be more chartreuse color.
