    Re: First Hydro, Nirvana Big Bud

    Just wondering if you can only use buffer to calibrate a Ph meter once or can it be re-used ?
    I'll post pictures of my ladies stems later, there thicker than two cigarettes.
    If anyone has any general advise about my setup or plants feel free, this is my first grow

    Heres a shot a couple of weeks ago ish.

    Sweet looking setup; nice 'n clean..! +rep

    pH buffer solution is not re-usable. (At least mine isn't) Discard it after using it.

    White Widow, Purple Wreck, Lavender, Kali Mist, Angel Dust, Aurora Indica, and Big Bud

    Do your rooms seal up airtight?

    Congrats on your setup and plants, both are great! From the looks of your plants you definitely learned from your mistakes with your first grow that you say "ended badly". This will be a nice journal to follow.

    Yeah, I have been using buffer 7.0, went to check it against buffer 4.0 and it was way out!! NOW I KNOW!! The first 4 weeks of this grow I didnt have a PH meter!!! Ph sorted now finally!!!

    Thanx 4twenty4all
    I think I made every mistake possible!! Overwater, underwater, nutrient burn, not enough nutrients, hot spots from reflective material, etc.
    Its only because of this site that The above grow is going at all!!!

    P.S I have photos of all my mistakes that i'll post somewhere sometime!!

    Will post new pics today!!!

    Updated pics!


    2x Bagseed,(Unknown strain) @ 46days {Labelled UK1 & UK2}
    2x Nirvana Big Bud @ 29days {Labelled BB1 & BB2}
    1X Bagseed,(Unknown strain) @ 21days {Labelled Uk3}


    Things seem to be going fine / ish. Ph problems sorted. I had been using my Ph buffer over & over & over again!! oops!
    As a result there was some nutrient lockout in all five plants, although they all seemed to go about their business in a

    mostly normal fashion. I think because all plants started the first 4weeks with a flucuating Ph of somewhere between 3-8

    that they have a little tolerence to the imbalanced Ph.?. maybe.?. Either way I can't wait for my next grow, which will

    have perfect Ph all the way through!! I'm Excited!!!


    Cheers for the support,

    Until I bump into you round the site,

    I think those roots showing means you need bigger pots, is this the case for hydro?
