Anyone use household items to make ph up? Ran out of ph up. I wasn't told we was running out. I'm 1 week into flower and need ph up tonight. I see the plant once a week to clean out rez and I don't have any ph up. Don't want to wait an extra week to clean it. Have heard potassium hydroxide can work? Anyone use it? After mixing nutrients my ph is at 4.1 using botanicare line. I hardly ever have to use ph down

i use baking soda . works great . a lil pinch goes a long way .. it contains allot of sodium so its not a long term solution but it will do the trick and help u achieve the ph u seek .. it didnt kill my plants at all . this plant was given baking soda all through flower stage .
