If you grow with organics in soil do you use regular ph down?

Great! thanx for the MSDS. You compare:
Yeah the raw contains bacillus amyloliquefaciens which I feel is an absolutely crucial addition. This species has been used in big AG for prevention and curing of pythium, damping off and a whole host of other issues. It's actually all that hydrogaurd contains.. this one species and that's it.

That's why I would choose raw bloom but they are very similar. The raw veg does not contain it so that's why I recommend the bloom.

But what's nice about the recharge is the humic and fulvic acids

The two are very close in content. Both look good. I'm just not ready to say go for it without first hand knowledge to anyone else. For myself, your word is good to me so I would try it.

Recharge and SAG together would cover everything very well. The SAG is so bloody cheap it's ridiculous and sooooo effective.

If it works on powdery mildew I'd be all over it, for summer squash not weed 😄 I live in woods that stuff wipes them out quick.
This stuff is very effective. I haven't used it on PM but I have no doubt it would help prevent and cure.

BTW I just did a quick LUX check & it was lower than I even expected at the closest bud point it peaked around 40,000 hung at about 19". Given this I wouldn't think sunburn would be an issue, made me want to lower the lights, this is 2 SF-2000 in a 5'x5' tent after all so it is rather under lit.

Seconding the dolomite lime recommendation. It's a big part of keeping plants green late into flower for me.
I've read you have to mix your soil with dolomite weeks or even months in advance... is that true? - at around 1tbsp per gallon of soil...

How do you use it?

Never done that, can't say that I see any benefit to it. I mix it in the soil and topdress with it if there are pH concerns.

I got laughed at few days ago for suggesting baking soda to lower PH... look who had the last laugh now :D
