okay ppm at 275 gonna leave it there, new reservoir gave them another 4 inches from the light to bring it around 11.5DLI with the 20/4

Run 300 ppm of nutrients after cal mag…. If tou even need cal mag.

What is your source water?

Run 200ish ppfd and change to 18/6.

Whats your source water? Its likely the high dose of cal mag thats giving N tox. Check your cal mag and i bet you see the sources as calcium nitrate and magnesium nitrate
@Aqua Man Yes it does say that… live and learn I guess. Redoing res. Going to put in 1/4 of what I did 1tspn per gallon I thought
damn, spot on....

unless im missing something, my RO has a reminalizer, and ive really never had a problem with PH fluctiating i check it maybe 1-2 times a day, always stays between 5.5-6, when it gets to 6 i do 1/2ml till its close enough or at 5.5

Can you link the remineralizer? Just want to make sure its not a softener that’s adding sodium

Think it adds back too much salt? Maybe I can dilute it with some tap? Not exactly understanding what I’m looking for

So I redid the res put potassium bicarbonate in it to 75-80ppms cal mag brought it to 200, then another 150 of the trio, and I’m guessing the 80ppms of bicarbonate is too much? Trying to drop the PH after everything was in was a pain in the ass and then of course I’m assuming because the plants are doing something to raise the PH still

Almost had to use between 40-50ml of down from 9.0 to 5.5 I did dilute it a lot as I put it in, 25gallon tote hope I didn’t make the water toxic

Well don’t know if I killed them but I’m redoing the res again…. They shouldn’t droop this much from sleeping
