on pH testing

Do any of you test and adjust the pH of your mediums? Would you recommend an electronic type pH tester or just the strips?

Do you find that adjusting it helps speed colonization time and the general success of your grow?

not so much more speed it up as optimise everything. peat casing is too acidic, and as you add buffers to fix this, you can make it too basic. both situations can fuck your grow up.

as we try new things (i'm trying honey tek now) it's only sensible to do it as close as possible to how the experts do it. that's why we can all get so much from the faqs, the search feature, and the experienced dudes on these boards (and i don't count myself among them).

here endeth the lesson :kiss:

I'm with shirley, i would be happy if i had a electronic one, but the strips work fine for now.

You want a casing with the pH around 6.8 - 7.2, when the casing is either more acidic or aklaline it will slow mycelial growth and support the growth of competitors.

I've heard what I need to hear; however, don't stop the flow of information I would bet other people would like to hear.
