Central brother, some day I'll be out there 😁
So for the most part, plants have been doing pretty well. One of my loops is doing rather well, minus a few of the top buds look slightly deformed, all the mid and bottom buds look amazing tho. This loop is eating around 30-40ppm per night and drinking tons of water.

My second loop did rebound and plants look alright (different strain).. but over the last few nights it has started eating less, and then last night it actually started exuding PPM from the plants I believe, as my PPM is rising in that loop.

Any idea what would cause my PPM to start rising in the loop? They seem to be drinking the water at a fairly normal rate, and the res is only 3 days old.

How are the roots looking? They may just be lighter feeders. So you can top up with just water. All that means is the plant is taking up more water than nutrients... as long as it looks healthy uts not a concern. Just lower the ppm of nutrient concentration for that loop.

Cool that's exactly what I did.

Roots look good, nutrient stained but no slime. Look the same as they did weeks ago.

I run water chillers and beneficial microbes so I feel pretty good about my root health.
