Here's my numbers:When you get your pH meter, check your water, your water when the nutes are mixed in and the runoff. In soil you want low 6’s for pH(I think 6.2-6.5 is the sweet spot but I don’t check pH due to growing organically for years and using a product that is pH buffered now). If the pH is too high or too low, certain nutrients are locked out(calcium and magnesium or cal mag seem to be the quickest to show and easiest to ID). A lot of people have found their water has really high pH lately(someone on here said they are getting 10 out of their tap).
Water (bottled RO) = 6.5
Water + Nutes = 6.5
Water only runoff = 6.4
Water + Nutes runoff = (will check next time I feed nutes)
The only substance that has given me a very broad range of results is my water. Sometimes it starts displaying 8-something, then slowly goes lower and lower to like 6.3. I think I finally found a way to hold the device at a certain level and am getting more consistent results, but my water pH doesn't make sense to me. Thoughts?
