I think I see a calcium deffecency in my peas, the older lower leaves are green and healthy while the newest leaves are yellow and burnt at the edges,no sign of pest. after much reading I'm still not settled as to what the best calcium foliar spray would be. My ph is 8.2 and stable but lowering slowly. I'm using maxicrop plus iron as a spray. What should I use for calcium that will not raise my PH? Also I grew some pepper plants from seed in soil and so far every transplant to ap the leaves on bottom start dieing and and the plant soon after. my nitrates are 30-40 ppm atm. pics coming soon.

Hi Chris, not sure as it is not something I have had to deal with as my systems are pH 6 to 7.5.

I would presume that it needs to be something that is easily taken up by plants via foliar, since you don't really want to add anything to main system water. Scotty or Mr Damage may have some ideas - hopefully the bump may catch their eye.

PH started system at 7.5 added fish and plants it went to 8.4, now it is stable at 8.2 GH is 5 drops around 89ppm and KH was 8 drops around 149ppm. I recently added crushed eggshell in the corner of growbed near pea plants, but I really don't want to raise PH and eggshell can be removed. ( I caught an Amphiuma from the creek and added him, not relevant to the question but just an awesome discovery for me and my wife)

System really does look good. Do you need to boil eggshells first? What about the minerals which support calcium uptake by plants.

I made a foliar spray from this powder. It doesn't go in the water if it's sprayed on leaves, I guess is the idea.

Thanks, that's what I used thinking it was a magnesium issue, but it didn't help. I've also tried maxicrop plus iron

So what was the total costs of the product plus shipping?

But before you answer that, stop by a Pharmacy and check their costs for the same product, you'll probably want to kick yourself.

Use to sell this on ebay years ago, great markup prices. Would buy it in 50 lb bags, and then repackage it in 1, 2, 5 lb Zip-Lock bags, add a printed label.

And yes, I would also advertise it as "Greenhouse Grade" so the buyer thought he was getting the same material as the growers use.

Hi Chris, the tomatoes in buckets may be a catch22. Tomatoes are heavy feeders and would like a lot of replenishment and circulation. The plastic pots may not offer enough. If you drill some holes in then the roots will come out of them anyway.
The bags people use tend to have a weave so they leak in from all around.

If you flood&drain you may be OK but may have issues if you constant flood.
(what cycle are you running at present ?)
