Hi lazylathe, do I understand you correct that your dogs are eating rabbit droppings? Maybe you could create a dedicated place with a clean hard surface and put a bit of food, like lettuce leaves or so (where your dogs can't access) and vacuum the droppings with a hand vacuum like a Dyson.@Budsbunny
Thank you for starting this thread!
I remember chatting to you in another thread of your about bunny poop!
I have a lot at hand, the only problem is I need to get outside before my dogs do, those buggers just Hoover it up!
It's like a treat for them!
I will start collecting whatever I do see around the yard and start drying it out.
The rabbits are coming out in droves into the yard once the dogs are asleep.
Do you know how long it lasts once dried and stored?
I presume I will crumble it up and store in an air-tight ziplok bag for use in my winter grow.
Very keen to follow along with you!
Buying droppings saves you a lot of work, 50lb will serve you for many years to come.
A buffer is a substance that resists changes. It seems to me as if the rabbit poop has some sort of buffer that resists your changes and reverts back to what it wants to be.What do you mean with "how much of a buffer"?
If I dilute the concentrate, the Ph. goes down to 7.4 If I bring the Ph more down than 6.5 it will come back to 6.5 but stays stable after that, no matter how much concentrate is in the batch. In my batch of the rotating garden, there is 10X more concentrate in the mix but that also stays stable at 6.5.A buffer is a substance that resists changes.

Did a bit of reading and rabbit poop has a pH of around 8.5, so very alkaline.
I would say this is the reason your pH keep rising by itself.
Thank you Modest grower, the RH is at 52%, I would be able to bring that up a bit, but probably it is the (too low) temperature, which is at 18C / 65F right now. I think the (maybe too strong) exhaust fan is sucking cold air from the basement into the dresser that is my "grow room". I will see what I can do about that, if I can increase the temperature, the RH will go a bit up again as well.I skimmed through a bit but will go back and read through. On the curling do you know what your humidity is? My current plants were curling a bit and I think it was low humidity. I also forgot my fan turned off I'm a power outage so air wasn't circulating. I increased the humidity to around 60% in veg/preflower and turned the fan back on and the droopy plants were reaching. Just some things to check as possibilities I suppose. Cute wild bunnies!
