Haven't seen them but if they tell you the ph to the first decimal place then they should be ok.


How is your ventilation set up?

Hey all, Tom my ventilation setup is, i have 2 computer fans in each corner at the bottom for air in and a 250mm barthroom in the top for air out my hood has one fan pumping air in and two sucking it out, Pipeman i was going to run to waste as i think it would be the best for me until a get a lot better growing hydro.

Hey Oz,

the pool ph strips usually don't go low enough for pot. Ask your hydro

guy, he should have them. I use a meter, but that costs a bit more.

One thing to watch out for is heat in a small setup. If you find it's a problem,

put some duct on one of your intake fans and suspend the open end at the same height as the top of your plants. Move it up as the plants grow. Once

the stretch stops in bloom you wont have to move it at all. Using this method

you can get the light as close as 10 cm to the buds without burning them,

depending on the temp of the air you pull in of course. Do not try this in the outback summer.
