Ph won't tell you a thing about alkalinity... it will only show the ratio of acid to alkaline elements. All you will be able to tell is if there is more acidic elements or alkaline elements but no way to tell the buffering capacity with an alkalinity meter.
If your runoff is 7.5 slurry is 6.5...that tells me your soil has high alkalinity or a high buffer. Right?

So would I water it at a lower price pH then to lower the overall soil pH? And what about the ppms? Shouldn’t the be up around 1200 during flower?
Varietal dependant. Some eat alot some are finicky....landrace sativas are real picky...1200 sounds a bit high at some point in week 3 to 5 in an 8to9 week varietal having a high ppm is ok....thats all going to be gauged from the standnpoint of what the plant is telling you(that comes from exp).

Not necessarily. If the slurry is 6 5 then the runoff should be the same.
Ive have a high ph of 7.5. Ran 10 gal through 3 gal pot to no change in ph runoff. But my slurry said 6.6 or something around there. Im going to try to do an alkalinity test today with my handy hanna meter...

I know i put too much dolomite lime in and should have put gypsum in instead. Gypsum i now know is better to use...a 50/50 mix is what ill use next time....ill be home in a few hours...ill do the alkalinity test if the meter allows(color of the water might throw it off) me to...

So the dolomite and gypsum lower and raise soil ph?

@SequoyahCannabisCo i looked through and dont know the nutrient tea you are using or the soil.

But i will say it looks like there may be bugs causing the damage and maybe glossy leaves.


If not it could be watering too often that is locking out nutrients or a general imbalance.



Sorry i cant help more. :-(

Bc the slurry test is an overall acidic test of the soils ph correct? And the tds?

Terp tea Bloom by roots organic, 1/2 teaspoon at 1 gallon and 1tblspoon molasses. 1/3 gallon to plants every other day, the only feed ever was Monday. No bug damage I checked it’s gotta be due to insufficient lighting and overwatering I feel.

You didnt do a ph slurry test?
Nah my grow is away from my home other than my seedling/soon to be mothers. My business partner isn’t home either so he’ll either do it tomorrow or I will be on Monday when I get the meters.
