Hi all! For those of you who have seen my posts on here, this may be surprising but Im a little embarrassed to say I have been having some PH problems. Here's a rundown of what is going on: I use Fox Farm Original soil and, for years, it has been fine. My water in my area is good, but I run it through a carbon filter just to make sure it is fine. Typically it is about a 6.5 going in. I use all dry organic ferts and make sure to test for nutrient levels. Anyway, on some more sensitive plants (ducksfoot) I have been getting some terrible copper colored spots and necrosis of the leaf tissue. At first I treated with a little liquid bloom nutes as I hear Ducksfoot is greedy, again adjusted up to PH 6 or 6.5. Anyway, long story short the problem only got worse. After checking everything with a kit, I found N P and K were through the roof and soil PH was down in the 5s.... NO GOOD! Obviously we have some nute lock out due to the f'd up PH. I am starting a new grow and trying to make sure the water going in is more alkaline (7.5 or so), but lo and behold the runoff is testing in the 5.5 area or so. I have flushed with alkaline water a few times to no avail. I feel like I am going to keep running into problems if I keep using this soil, but didnt used to have this problem and certainly not with less sensitive strains. Three questions: 1. Is it obvious I am doing something wrong? 2. How would you adjust/address this problem? I am already watering with 7.5+ PH water, which just feels goofy. 3. Is there a better brand of soil with less PH problems you'd recommend? I have to stay away from crab meal and oyster shells due to a severe crustacean allergy. Thanks all!
