so instead of adding acids or ferts , one just gives TAPwater.


That depends on the source of the tap water... although pH8 is common in many places for tap water... atm mine is coming out of the tap at pH 5.5. This is because there is a lot of snow melt in the water atm and snow melt is chock full of organic acids.

To add nutrients to the water I am having to use an akaline supplement or the pH drops out to 4.5.

I think I understand whats going on hereThe ph range Martini refers to is for soilCoco needs a ph that is lower than soil.Optimally grown plants smell different from plants that are not so optimally grownIn nature you see that terpenes and flavinoids express themselves strongly in mor chalky surroundings.playing around with ph and slight underfeeding makes sure there is a lower amount of chlorophyl; heightening taste , diminishing chlorofyl count,.The best nutrient computers used in professional horticulture have a very nice downwards curve of ph and nutrients when fruit is ready.SOME strains have a few moments wich you need to switch ph .Coupled with a different watering regime it triggers bigger tastier buds.In you case, i would start flushing with high ph water 7 days before harvest , possibly longer.Tasty bud is something to look forward to.Sparkling nasty tasting overfed chemical bud is something I rather not own.I rather dont get aquianted with people who prefer overferted shiny bud high yields over slightly lower yield and much more flavour.but that's all just  my opinion



May I ask how acidifying my medium more so than the natural lowering of PH from breaking down of organic matter and cation exchanges? IE. can you explain to me how lowering ph even further would allow for better uptake of reservers of those nutrients being uptaken from the medium if they are locked out? I believe my coco goes through a natural ph upshift during its normal wet dry cycle. Again I believe in providing the plant with optimal conditions so that it can reach it's genetic potential, which means maximum chlorophyll leading to maximum turpene and flavinoid production. As they cannot be produced without the energy, and do you know how the plants energy is synthesized? well it starts with chlorophyll cells absorbing lgiht ;P without em no energy :D I am not too worried about chlorophyll ruining the taste of my bud, as I have self control and patience and cure the buds, allowing for breaking down of chlorophyll. I honestl take offence at those claims, and the fact that you back them up with piss weak anectodal claims makes me laugh at you. Now has it ever occured to you two as well that as Sara stated above, that is common gentic traits off the BD? ;P

martini mate, keep on keeping on, you do not make much sense to me. but that may be my fault ;P
your soil makes a downshift in the flowering period, that might be the thing i saw on the pictures, good uptake of nitrogen and less good of phosphor.

Again martini (or john boy if you prefer), you are missing the point - Frank is NOT growing in SOIL!!!!!

Hello bil, been a while since you posted around here. Nice to see you and your Black Domina - gosh and it has the same dark glossy leaves as franky's... who woulda thought that would happen?
