Hi there,


So I did quite a research already however I'm confused with how many aluminium solfat I should add to my soil. I'm gonna have four-five plants each in a six litter container or 1.6 gallon each so lets say 6.4 gallons.

How much of AL/S should I add to bring it down for one point?

Also I got this bat guano/ worm castings medium which is supposed to do the job, any thoughts?

not really. if you were using chemical nutrients i would agree as they would be locked out but if you are using organic nutrients its not a problem.

if you just use rain water with your soil for the first month or so then you can ph the feeds after that if you feel it is necessary and there shouldnt be any problems at all.

well thats great to hear. I will measure the ph of rain water once i get the meter, which should be any day now.

I don't know where you are from but what would be the best brand etc. for getting the PH down in case I need it.

the rain water should be acidic from the co2 dissolved in the droplets as they form. i use phosphoric acid to bring my ph down. there are many brands out there selling the same product so its just a case of going with price or advertising whichever floats your boat.

One more question, during the night or when the light is off does the ven in and out needs to run?

its best to run your ventilation fans 24/7 as it keeps the humidity down so you dont get mold or other problems.

makes sense! :)

did you manage to read my thread about the soil composition? Just wondering as you look like you know what you're talking about.
