Troubleshooting Form: Answer this questions first, before posting yours!

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

Ok a question related to your questions.
For ph adjustment you list white vinegar. I use apple cider vinegar in place of ph down because it is my first grow and I had a large bottle in a cupboard and was trying to save money.
Any ideas whether apple cider vinegar is good bad or somewhere in the middle for ph downing your water?
