Better get your self a ph test kit and an EC meter,
otherwise you won’t have control of what your feeding them..
Its an extra cost but vital.
I'm not worrying about distilled or RO water, I'll just use tap water - it's close to neutral at around 6.6/6.8 if I remember from the last test I did for an aquarium. I have pH test kits. I also have a pH/EC/temp metre I scored a while ago on ebay. 👍
I actually mix terra with coco and a few other things so dont really matter witch way u gow with nutes
As long as u keep e.c and p.h within acceptable limits u be ok
I ended up ordering the Terra before I came back to check replies 😆
So I have ferts coming, I have a pH/EC meter, CFLs/grow spectrum T8's if I want to use them. I need to hit the nursery on the weekend for potting mix, coco & perlite.
15/20L pot plenty big enough for a small auto yeah? I'll start with the same medium in a small half litre pot before transferring.
I think I'm good now and almost ready to go. If anyone has any other tips, feel free to chime in.
I haven't decided on germination method, think I'll just go the 24hr soak to paper towel route. I tried one of my GSC babies in a coco pod a coupe of months ago and it wasn't successful. I think it dried out on me. 😟
Should I be worried about chlorine when soaking? I have dechlorinator to remove it but not sure if I should use it. What about bottled water?
Either way, I'll start a journal when I get started, that way everyone can watch my shortcomings and help rescue me! 😆
Thanks heaps for your help everyone, its been great to know I'm on the right track and be thrown in the right direction when needed. 👍
