    Hi mate, welcome along - yes, you are posting in the 'new' section

    81% PH down is 19% lower than 100% PH down. I know that's not really the answer you want but the only other real answer is 'pretty strong'

    In a 5 litre jug it only took about 5 small drips of ph down to get it from 7.5 down to 6 ish

    Id say, i tried doing a 2l mix with 6.9ph tap, added 1ml and the ph bottomed out to 2ph, the sink enjoyed it though, drips rather than a ml now.

    You got no buffer solution?

    is the "1212" your light hours?

    if so youll be better off with 20-4 for an auto plant.

    If you are growing an Auto, dont put your lights to 12/12. Put it to 20/4 for the whole grow start to finish,

    Hey mate, next time that happens, use that over-acid mix as your "cheap" pH Down, and add that to another 2L bottle to get your mixture. Waste not want not. All the best.

    Oh dear, I went to change my lighting schedule and thought while in there I'd tie a few branches away from the lights.

    Have snapped a full branch off from the trunk.... not happy.

    They feel and look strong but obviously not, live and learn I suppose.
