    The microbials are useless outside of pH range they are most likely already dead.

    You've got a good point there!

    This might be of interest :idea:

    Most microorganisms have an optimum pH range for survival and function (see table 2).
    Table 2: Maximum, minimum, and optimum pH values for microbial groups. (adapted from Smith and Doran 1996)
    Microorganisms Range Optimum
    Bacteria RANGE 5 - 9 OPTIMUM 7
    Actinomycetes RANGE 6.5 - 9.5 OPTIMUM 8
    Fungi RANGE 2 - 7 OPTIMUM 5
    Blue green bacteria RANGE 6 - 9 OPTIMUM > 7
    Protozoa RANGE 5 - 8 OPTIMUM > 7

    If the fan in the pic's running I'd shut it down for the next week or two until she demonstrates some vigour and you've nailed the grow room temps.

    Sometimes you forget about things you do automatically, like monitoring, conditions. For example: 15070779108409008249199198972212.jpg 15070779962242420732397363251235.jpg

    First one is a Co2 / temperature/humidity/timr Data logger. The other is a easily seen cheesey temp/humidity. In the same room different walls

    Thanks @Sunshine and @Uncle_Al I just got this today. It read 79-82 until it cooled off here. ;) 20171003_221119.jpg
    I shut off the fan for the time being. A hygrometer would be neat too. Al I've been training this baby since she was tiny :)

    I need something very similar, I just didn't take the time to order one since there was A regular thermometer close by up for grabs.

    @Sunshine @Uncle_Al tomorrow I will be switching from a 300w 132 actual to a 600-1000 watt adjustable led. I dunno the actual draw just yet but it's from my landlord who saved his top of the line insanely expensive gear so he can grow again in a few years when he's off probation. He really is a terrific fellow :)

    That tool is prohibitively expensive for the average user. Part of my work related tool kit. I have a buttload of cool electronics

    I saw your post that said you are an electrician for your day job. It probably makes growing that much easier. I've been shocked by too many things to feel overly comfortable messing with wires. It's almost a phobia at this point. The gadgets are a nice perk though :rolleyes:

    Nice! What's your actual draw for veg room/flowering rooms?

    My grow is in dark cycle right now, otherwise I would scoot down there and measure it for you as a pictorial I will catch it for you in the morning.

    Nice score @FerretWrangler :party::party: Do you know what the actual wattage is at full power? or what model it is? Also does it say if it's 3w or 5w diodes.
    That amount of light should kick out some serious buds :)
