gotcha thanks I just cancelled the dolomite since it won't be effective. But I do have pH up and down so after checking the pH of all the premade nuted water saturday when I get the meter, I'll be adjusting accordingly thanks sunshine ✊

Check the ph of the premade nuted water before adding and also check the ph of runoff.
Your figures might look like this
IN - ph 6.6
OUT - ph 4.8
= A drop of almost -2.
If this was the case you would want to add liquid at a higher than ideal ph (+2) to get a soil ph broadly in the region you're looking for.
Hope that makes sense, any questions shout. Best of luck 👍

The thing is my waterings dont have runoff, I just water 3 liters every morning and by the next morning the top soil is dry, the leaves are still pointing upwards and I do the same. I feel like if i let it run, I wouldn’t have the watering schedule down packed and then Id have to refigure out the whole process of feeding them.

Hey Sunshine you were right just got the meter today. The meter reading was 4.8 for all my nutrient solutions that I have premade. I have adjusted them to about 7.5 each. But you just saved me, i wouldn't have realized it and who knows what that would've done to my garden. The other premade solutions with mammoth p were all at 7 so the nutrients and additives were the culprit to my really acidic weekly dose. Thanks sunshine =] , nice to have someone around who knows their stuff.

Will do, I'll add pictures of each strain in its own message in my next update. Decided to buy calmag today which comes in thursday. Really finding it weird how courtney all of sudden doesn't become dry the next morning and the soil is still moist. She was needing to be watered every day a week ago until these brown spots started popping up. Now that the pH problem is corrected I still feel that she needs calmag to be part of her feed until the issue clears up, and just a small dose every other watering after. Danni might need it too cause her lower leaves are kind of a lime green color from the rest and it doess show some symptoms of a mag deficiency as well so both those girls will need it. Tilly is super green, doing amazing along with ashley. So really can't wait to nurse the other two back to health on thursday.

yea courtneys suffering pretty bad from ca deficiency. It's affected 7 leaves now and I spotted one leaf last week I should've bought it sooner. Lots of brown spots and it's giving me pretty bad anxiety. Will giving calmag tomorrow make it regain it's health? I'm really beating myself up over it. It's from all the reading I've done that it stunts growth, and sooner or later the stems will become hollow and brittle and begin falling over. Shes not in that shape yet but I really hope it's not too late.

Also gonna give her the roots excelurator again just because I read up on the roots becoming prone to diseases like root rot or slime rot, and I'm now guessing thats the reason the soil doesn't become dry the very next day like it used to. Since H&G Roots excelurator builds healthy roots and prevents that stuff, I'm guessing it'll help so I'm gonna apply it to her soil tomorrow also for about a week.

Then heres Courtney, she was diagnosed with Cal deficiency as of yesterday and treated. New Spots are still appearing but I'm hoping it just takes a little while for the calmag to kick in but it's really got me stressed out. Hoping she'll recover this week.
