I use the gh flora line
. Never had problems in 10+ years
The flora line is a great beginner nute line.
I used it when first starting.
Many shy away from GH Due to their selling out to Monsanto.
WHILE gh flora does grow some good stuff, I dropped them to use a less chem forward Nutes. I’ve enjoyed some great tasting stuff grown with GH. But I don’t want pretty colored water any more.
Also why would I pay so much for colored water?? ( all bottled and GH Nutes are 95% water)
If the GH Nutes are meeting your level of expectation, then grow on.
To each their own
Keep growing the good stuff.
Yes it does.
I've been using megacrop for 3 weeks now with a bud booster, cal mag, and silica in a dtw setup.
Once everything is mixed, ph hovers around 6.5. I ph down to 5.7 and within a few hours the ph will creep back up to 6.0, then it will settle at 6.2.
At this point I will ph down to 5.7 again, but as the reservoir gets past the halfway mark, the ph starts to drop.
The last 2 days I have to add ph up daily.
I suspect the drop in ph could be do to the bennies in the res multiplying and acidifying the solution.
You may be over thinking this believing a plant needs to be at the “ perfect” ph.
It would seem your plants are drinking more water and useing less of the Nutes hense the making of a more concentrated Rez solution.
Figger out why your plants are taking up more water.
Too much heat???
Too much wind increasing transpiration??
Maybe think about doing a top off with just ph’d water when the Rez is low
add Nutes and ph once a week
And don’t sweat these small ph fluctuations till it’s time to add your weekly nutes
Enjoy the journey
