    I must say PH 6.5 is little high ideally you should be looking for a PH in between 5 and 6 , good luck though

    just use normal water or rainwater if doing a outdoor grow..ph is normally between 6 and 7 in UK..if you get it around 6 that it's good to go.. spooky I think you may be on about hydro ph?

    you want your ph above 6.4 in soil as mg will get locked out under that, i try and aim for around 6.7-6.8
