PH-value in passing water / sewage

3 posts in this topic

Hi there.

the irrigation water is ajusted to 5.9

when i measure up the water that is passing the coco (the sewage), the ph-value is between 6.5 and 6.8.

the girls are growing well, and looking beautyful.

but i could not anderstand, what is happening inside the coco, that the ph-value is climbing up so high.

is it right or wrong ?

wich ph-value consits real in the coco-substratum ?

i dont now how to test that.


thanks for answers

Hi growchaote,


Salt residues from plant waste will cause the media ph to rise, and thus the run-off.


What coco are you using, as not all coco's are created equal.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
