hello mate
when light were going off ph was at 5.1 so i topped it with 2 ltrs of ro water and added ph up to 5.5
now lights will go on in one hour and ph is at 4.9
before lights off ppm was at 1470 now at 1500
this is getting out of hand now i think

That chart should be tattooed on the inside of every newbie grower's - and more than a few "expert's" - eyelids. That way, they'd have to see the thing every time they blinked.

BtW, is this a grow journal? If so, it's in the wrong section (but a staff member could easily move it for you).

It’s not normal for that fluctuations. I’d say there is a nutrition lockout going on I’m a dwc grower. I just pulled 873 grams off one plant also. I’m a experienced dwc grower.

I keep my ph at 5.6-6.4. I’ll start on the high side right after the bucket change and it will drift to 5.4 area but for the first 2 days check the ph in the am the evening. But after the 2 day period it should have figured it’s self out. Another thing is if your running ro water cal-mag is a must. But I’d you have just ro water in your Rez the ph will be everywhere. There is no buffer To hold it stable.

yes i also add cal mag
that is why i started to add tap waterbecause of ph flux
i changed the rez 3 days ago and ph dropped today
i was told by chris to change the water again today and not add and nutes just enzyme and cal mag
how long should i leave it with no nuts ... we are sort of flushing it i think no?

is is normal for ph to flux from 6.1 to 4.9 in 24 hrs
Not normal, no. If you have a really small reservoir, you'll naturally see faster shifts -. which is one reason I always favored 20+ gallon ones. If you're using crappy homemade/substitute pH adjusters that have effects which are only temporary, then you could see something like that. If you have a reservoir that is harboring microbial life, it could cause your pH to tank. Et cetera. But it's not normal, lol.
