What/What not to do when blooming
 
I am just curious... Do I trim down on the fertilizer, water more? I just added some ashes from my burn pit and now I'm wondering if that was a good idea. I didn't see anything specific when i searched.

thanks in advance

It's never a good idea to dramatically change the ph level, an adequate amount of water is the most important from now until harvest.

I use a lot of biochar, but not much ash.

will the ash throw off the ph? up or down?

edit: ash will raise the ph if too much is applied. not sure what the long-term impact will be on sandy soil. i guess we'll see what happens.

What to do: take looks of pictures of your bloom and developing bananas.

Apply a fertilizer that is rich in potassium and water.

For a large plant, or mat you can put a cup in the 5 gal and a cup of Potassium sulphate.. What you see over the next couple days is amazing.. :^)

Do a search.. and find the cheapest place for shipping for you. Kelp4less don't have the ultrafines no more... They have a potash granular product.. I consider ultrafines the Gold Standard.. Just don't get it wet in the bag.. :^)

In the short term it will increase, but with the amount of rain we get in Florida, the effects will nearly be gone in 6 months.

please don't get me started on all of the pointless threads you start with 0 responses. there must be hundreds that everyone has to weed through to find some useful info. i'm sure in your senility they're helpful in remembering how meaningless your life is, but go troll somewhere else.

:waving:
