What is your PPM/EC going into the media? And if PPM what scale?
What is Pro Silica?
and to add to @Aqua Man comments, my ph is also between 7.2 to 8 depending on which month and season
also, the subject line saying in promix is the mother plant. Not these clones. Girls in flower are rockwool.
@Aquaman whats the best wayy to fix this?

Imo you need to add a buffer like potassium silicate, calcium bicarbonate etc. then pH down to 6.5 and add your nutrients.

PH of your starting water means nothing because it has nothing in it.

Think of it like this. A= Acid, B = Basic.

Your water has nothing ti start and you mix your stuff.

A/B things are stable until something changes. If you add either an acid ir a base you get this

A/BB The ratio has changed from 1/1 to literally 1/2 you have literally doubled the Basic by adding very little that causes a massive ph change

How you fix it is to add a buffer then use acid to balance it.

So now you are AAAAAAAAAA/BBBBBBBBBBB

10/10 and something changes you end up with almost no change in ratios 10/11 and the ph change as a result is tiny

got ya, i guess now i understand better what yyou meant earlier with the ratios that has been changed. Pro Silicate is on the list, i just can't get it yet.

Yeah once you have that you can create an adequate buffer

Just to be clear there Acidic and Base. No basic

This is all true. I run sterile with hypochlorous acid which brings down my solution to which I have to add base to get a buffering effect

@Aqua Man should i add the fluvic acid to the res next water change or just give it to the mother plants and baby clones right now? mother plants are in promix hp

Big thanks to @Dirtbag @Aqua Man @tobh and @Mr.GreenthumbOG for the help and advises they've been giving. The Ph struggle still continues, but hopefully it's all fixed soon.
Today i changed the res water and decreased the nutrient level to 1,1ec. This is mostly because the rw is running at low PH which has sky rocketed the EC to 2.7
Atleast that is what the bluelab ec/ph pen are showing me from the syrange tests.

The new mixture includes potassium silicate, fluvic acid and h2o2 which will be included to all the future mixtures i perform for clones, veg plants and or flower plants.
My tap water is like RO and so when i added the potassium silicate to the water and mixed it. It did shoot the ph up to 9. something with an 0.2ec
What i noticed is that i have to stablize the ph to 6.5 before adding part B of mega crop. Part A seems to work fine after potassium silicate is mixed well with the water. It reduces the ph to 8ish and increased my EC. However, if the ph is not adjusted to 6.5 before adding Part B than it will make the water all cloudy.
