Well as you guys have seen on my thread i have been having ph issues with advanced nutrients. My new round has been in 5 gal pots for only a week or so and have only been fed/watered 2 or 3 times with the solution ph at 6.3 or higher and ppm at 650 to 700. After only that time the soil ph has dropped to 6 already, not sure what it was after first watering but will check on the ones i plant today. Anyway i am sick of gett the problems that i get that no one else gets, even advanced nutrients costomer service said they dont know why it would do it but they also say it doesnt matter what the ph is with ph perfect but that is bs because as soon as it drops below 6 i get calcium deficiency. Well my solution i hope is to go to compost tea. My question are, can i use it exclusively? Has anyone done this and did you get top quality out of it? how do i use it, what ratio of tea to fertalizer or can i use my ppm meter and just add tea until i get to the ppm i want? If so would i use the same ppm that i use for chemical ferts? Can i safely use ph up or down without hurting the tea? Will the end quality and yield be as good as chemical fertilizers? (i know the ingredients will effect this, suggestions are welcome.) Oh and i use rain water so no worries about chlorine or anything else being in the starting water.
