    Are you talking 5.5 to 5.6 in 24 hrs. or 5.0 to 6.0 in 24 hrs?

    That doesn't sound right at all. Would there be any reason to suspect the meter itself? Are you able to calibrate it?

    Ya I have a feeling it might be the meter it was acting a little fishy! I am going to calibrate it now see what happens

    How did the meter calibration turn out? Were you able to get a handle on the PH? We need a picture update...lol.

    Re: How does my White Widow look - DWC

    See I always thought it was kinda normal for pH to drift up. In 72 hours mine will go from 5.5 to 6.2 or so I'll just pH her res back down and top off with pH water. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I have been DWC for 2 years with nice harvest my last one was 6 oz from one plant of great meds. This time should be even more but I use two different kinds of DWC one is regular airstone, the other is top feed hydropharm buckets. The hydropharm buckets seem to rise faster than old fashion DWC. I thought it was BC it goes thru top feed and gets light hitting it alone with other else in my tent environment

    Are you using tap water or RO water? I only ask BC that effects your ppm

    That looks like a happy White Widow now!

    And Bignugz brings up a good point. The base water to which you add nutes will effect the total PPM. A very hard water will have a high PPM to begin with.
    Also, if you're using tap water you should check your total alkalinity. A cheap pool or spa test strip kit will do. If total alkalinity is in the range of 30 to 50 your tap water is good to go and won't need additional cal/mag.

    OK well with RO water you don't or shouldn't have any ppm to start. I unfortunately don't use RO yet so I have to deal with tap water. I let it sit without a lid on it so chlorine and whatever, and else will evaporate. But my water sucks ppm is 350 to start so I gotta minus off 350 ppm from my nutes mix. Currently I have 1500 ppm but like I said it's actually around 1100ppm BC of SHITTY SEATTLE WATER!!

    My water sucks but if you let it sit with no lid on it before you use it the a lot of bad shit evaporates. But still I'll check with my TDS meter and it will be around 350 ppm after 2 days of sitting out. But it smells less chlorine and shit in the water. I still like to use cal-mag anyway BC I have had bad cal-mag def BC of LED, I believe that LED makes cannabis cal-mag whore.
