Hey DGC,

I’m in 15 gallon living soil and have periodically brewed nutrient and fungal teas throughout the grow. I feed Recharge and Mammoth P every watering.  Today starts week eight of flower and the weight is just is not there.
This has, however, been a very smooth run with no deficiencies or issues, but I checked my rain water pH last night for the first time and it was 8. I was planning on plain watering until harvest. Should I lower the pH in my rainwater or does it matter?  Also, going forward do I need to add pH down as well as Recharge to my teas?

I circled a black wasp in the photo and I’ve seen a few of these, but they don’t seem to harm the plant. Are they beneficial or get rid of them? Thanks DGC!
