TDS of 3300 ooof! 600-1200 would be better.It’s not time to start adding my nutrients yet but I’ve been practicing creating the solution to assure I can create something viable.
What I’m experiencing is my original tap water ph of 6.4 go down as much as 3.0 pts after adding nutrients. I ran some individual test this morning to get a closer look. The nutrients I have are about 5 years old stored in a basement with pretty consistent temps. Nutrients testing: sensi bloom, B-52, Mother Earth super tea, sensizym, sensi cal/mag ultra.
What are the possible reasons the ph would have such a dramatic drop and how to correct it. I have tried Ph up however the TDS rose to about 3300ppm. Including a pic of this mornings test.
If you take your tap water and add nutes to make it 1000ppm total what is the ph? If it's between 5-7 i'd just leave it.
