Just wanted to see if I can get some advice with this. My plants are 1 week into flowering and 6 weeks old from sprout. They’ve been in 3 gal pots of straight FFOF for almost 4 weeks now, giving it nothing but distilled water and cal mag (1 tsp/gal) every watering.
So as usual with FFOF my runoff ph is coming out at around 5.2, plants overall still look good (newer growth) but many of the fan leaves are showing signs of deficiency and it looks like this grow it gonna end up like the last one, dead because of a ph lockout.
I have some dolomite lime but I know it’s slow acting, is there a better way to raise the soil ph and fix this? (Flushing probably isn’t a good option since I haven’t even fed nutes yet and the runoff ppms are coming out at around 600).
Thinking the newer growth only looks ok because it’s pulling nutes out of the other fan leaves because it’s already locked out, is this possible?
