I also have the sledgehammer but i havent used it yet. I was told if i have 5 gallon pot i need to put 2 to 3 times that amount of water. So 5 gallon pot would take a minimum of 10 gallon of watet, and max of 15gallon of water. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in.✌does anybody have any advice for the sledge hammer flush how many gallons i should flush? I'm in a 5 gallon pot. Need advice on this asap.
SexyHey guys good evening! Well just a quick update i ended up ordering the sledge hammer flush from fox farms. Tonight was a watering and feeding 1 tbs fftb,1 1/2 tbs big bloom. Heat and humidity are going good. No issues there ended up removing the humidifier all together we are right around 40-45% without it. No problems that i can see. There is only one issues i'm worried about my room mates plant is starting to take over the tent and i'm worried its gonna smother my plant. Any ideas on what to do for that? Run off tested at 6.8 which is a little high for my liking. Id like it around 6.5 so i have 1 more feeding until the next flush. I'm really in need of a flush tutorial i feel the last one did absolutely nothing. So any advice there would be great. Here are some pics for you guys
Hey green this was just a flush for breaking up salt build up and whatnot. I'm letting my lady tell me when she is ready to be choppedAre you sure about the last feed? She looks like she still has quite a few weeks to go and will need plenty of P and K to help her fatten up and she will!
Did you use a tsp of sledgehammer for every gallon of water, i have the sledgehammer also but ive not used it yet. I would say your diagnosis is right about the dolomite lime causing your ph to stay at 6.8.✌Good afternoon everybody. So very quick update as I have been absent for a couple of days. So the flush went well I think I flushed with 11 gallons of water with a teaspoon of sledge hammer flush from fox farms. Everything went well she didn't have any adverse effects from the flush. Only issues that confused the hell out of me was that with ph'd 6.0 water after 11 gallons I would have expected the pH to drop. Well it did not it stayed right at 6.8. Now I was thinking maybe the dolomite lime had something to do with this? Or maybe the oyster shells in ocean forest? Im baffled by this. Any help in understanding the since behind it would be great. Well here are so photos for you guys.
Be back with an update on Tuesday for everyone. Be safe everybody. [emoji1]
Yup 1 per gallon Tom. Thank you for the input on the dolomite lime. It was the only thing that made sense to me.Did you use a tsp of sledgehammer for every gallon of water, i have the sledgehammer also but ive not used it yet.
