Thanks

Yes PH up what you are putting in water, nutes whatever to over 6.5. Keep doing this with your water in until you runoff measures closer to 6.5. Certain nutes and calmag won’t work if the PH is not high enough so it’s important to make sure your soil is around this mark to increase your chances so those elements take effect.

I grow hydro, so I never had the PH get too far off, but if yours is radically wrong, take it up in steps. Don't try to get it perfect the first try. Extremes aren't good for anything. YMMV.
