So my first grow, week 5
Had to flush last week as my runoff ppm was bonkers (1000+ppm)
2 out of 15 are severely banged up but the rest seem super healthy.
im really not sure what’s happen to them but I’m not gonna quit on them.

what do you guys think so far?
Btw the pics are an hour after feeding.

current feed:
FloraMicro
FloraGrow
FloraBloom
DiamondNectar
Thrive
Recharge

RO + Tap = 150ppm
Total with nutes = 400ppm
PH 6.3
77-82°F lights on
73-75°F lights off
RH 45-50%

Your plants look alright... You are giving them all those nutes that you listed? Thats crazy to me. Seems like a lot.

Im also on my first grow, about to start Week 8 and have been on nothing but water and CaMg+ ... I tried giving them Bloom and ended up with some Nute burn.... Im finding keeping it simple makes problems easier to solve too

I pH my water cause I am a newbie haha.. Our water in Arizona is horrible. I have to use RO

Pinch time if you haven't already? I use ro water & rain water. Nutes are Cal/mag, GH Bloom after flowering begins, Dynagrow, during veg, Oneness in flower w/pH down some most of the time, I am in week 8 flower. SS

Those yellow edges are potassium deficiency. For whatever reason. Your PPM is not ridiculously high. Definitely pH your feeds.

It’s a lot of product but at a low dosage so it doesn’t burn that’s my mentality of it.
its a lot of beneficial things including vitamins and beneficial microbials
Still maintaining around 300-400ppm of nutes per feeding and then a water/vitamin feed with recharge every other feed

Usually when growing in soil it'll buffer it enough that ph shouldn't be a major issue unless your water is all kinds of wonky.
Yeah my tap water is like 380ppm and 7.5ph
So I use RO water with CAlMag and ph to 6.3 so my thoughts are when it buffers closer to 7 it’ll go within the beneficial range of intake to the root system. Am I wrong thinking this way?

Here’s the feeding schedule I made to accommodate my lineup
From what it seems like once added to 1gal of water it jees ppm to the desired range.
