At it again. Still a rookie!

Really need the ph and TDS/PPM numbers in and out to give correct information.

Agreed, everything else looks reasonable.

Yup, the key info we need is the ph and TDS in and out.

Ok so the ph and tds of whatever I give to the plants and then the same with the run off?

Yup. That’s the key info you want to look at as soon as you see an issue.

Ahhh these damn plants… so I took a reading of my plain water…. It’s at 6.5ph and the ppm was at 202ish going in. So now I’m going to water to run off and take the ppm of the run off of each plant correct?

Yes, that’s correct. Check the run off of the plants in the trays. Aim for like 20% run off, swirl it around, and test.

Then I’d almost bet that it’s a watering issue. Likely too wet.

1170 and 6.8 is good


Do you know if that ppm meter is reading in 500 or 700 scale?

That one with 3300 is high, but the plant looks fine.

Yea super high I thought but I’m not familiar with the numbers and that plants is doing the best as of now

Ok, I looked up the meter and I can’t find an answer. Can you switch your ppm meter to EC


Also the pH on the second one is good

Nice apera :wink:.

pH could come down a little for this stage… but other than that the PPMs are good.

I’d almost bed this comes down to watering practices. Let’s see what the others have to say.

Can you share how often you water, and when you know when to water?
