"Its does Sylvia! Such an honor to have your reply!
I just got your book and I will read it like a bible and then compare with the results I got in the calculator.

"Josh, a well established ap system can generate sufficient amounts of P and K to grow flowering plants.. just for clarity (so when you do grow some ganja) it can be done in ap just fine.. i would still add some bud formula nutes in a dual root zone…"
"they are channel cats. A pipe blew apart and I lost all of the water in my sump tanks and it shorted out my power so the air pump was also shut off. When I replaced that much water it droped the water temp and raised the PH and I think the combined…"

"Hi everyone. Thanks for the words of support (thanks Jim and Rob). I'm on the road right now and there's a bunch I'd like to address, but will (try to) keep it focused to Rob's water quality report (and hydro chart), which gives…"
