Don’t no what I’m doing wrong

I’ve tried everything you guys of told me and then I could think of research on per General hydroponics grow chart I should be 1000 to 1200 ppm I’m running lower than that half strength because the first time I tried to mix it I got the nutrient burn so I diluted it way down and let it run like that for a couple days I just changed out all my water with fresh nutrients because I was getting ready to flip to flower I have no more room in my grow room to go up if they double in size I have a 20 gallon trashcan that I mix my new trance in which is perfect for my system I pump all my old water out and fill it right back up my pH is at 6.2

They look really good to me! Maybe some old burn but other than that…

as @Calizona said, looks good!

6.2 is a bit high for veg 5.8 is the usual during veg other then that looks good to me maybe a little nitrogen toxicity and water damage on a couple leaves but that’s it great job mate

I made a comment in your thread. Just a hint of nitrogen toxicity.

Something that is overlooked is light intensity vs nutrient load. High light levels mean high metabolism with higher demand on salts. Conversely; lower light intensity means plants can’t uptake higher salt levels well and they tend to burn. Just an FYI.

Looks like just a little paint swapping between leaves to me. Do you have a fan aimed at that part of the plant . Maybe they got roughed up and you’re seeing mechanical damage

they dont look to bad maybe try flushing and check for bugs.

I have a couple of other postings in other topics on here I don’t really no my way around yet and don’t no how to link them all together so I’m not explaining my issues 5 times I did have bugs which is in another topic with pics. I also have one in nutes with pics . I’ve just experienced a lot of issues within the last three weeks and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong I just got three new meters 1 PH 1 TDS/EC And none of them seem to coincide with the other @Watt-Sun @hercules @Myfriendis410

It looks good :relieved: man , just get to harvest , hydro was hard for me I gave up halfways , you doing good just make it to harvest , next run will be 10 times better, practice makes perfect :ok_hand:

So how do I determine if it high or low

I’m like others here, may have gotten roughed up a little but plants really look good. Are you using any calmag?
Another thing, in hydro what I’ve experienced, you don’t have to feed as strong. The plants don’t have to search for the nutes like coco or soil. So they have direct feed to the nutes.
Your doing great!!

If you tell us the line of nutes that you are using we might find the issue … now i know what i was missing in my first hydro attempts, next run will be better,

man I didn’t even had an Ec meter , still learning how to use it though.

GH grow bloom micro I’m only using about half strength but they have 2 different measurments I just noticed one says 2tsp per gallon each I’m only give them 45ml. The other chart says 5.3ml micro 4.7 grow 6.1 bloom even with only half strength of the first chart I’m reading 894ppm 1912EC 5.86 PH. On the second chart it says I need to be at 1.4 to 1.7 EC and 700 to 850 PPM I’m lost

I think your numbers are in good shape. Try not to get caught up in the numbers too much. The plant will tell you. It’ll just take a little time to learn to read your plants. It’ll all come in time.

If you have a specific question and you need to get a hold of somebody, use the @ symbol in front of someone’s name like @Watt-Sun or @Myfriendis410 Plenty of folks here to help.

Thanks @spyonyou I’m sure I’ll have more!!!

I agree: with GH base nutes your target value should be in the 850 to 950 ppm range. The EC you quoted is missing a decimal: should be 1.912 which matches your ppm number.

Then I won’t be able to help you as I’m not able to chase around disparate information about your grow. If you want help then fill out a Support Ticket in one place and tag people in to it. You have no idea how many posts I review daily.

BUGS are our enemy i use neem oil a lot. the bugs never take a day off they are always trying to destory our crops. bugs will stress out your plants bad. hope you get things under control and good luck.
