    Default Nutrient lockout

    On my first watering after repotting I have fucked up my plant with my broken ph meter.
    I believe a have fed them with as low as 3-4 ph water and ever since two week later plants still suffering and struggling with nute deficiency. Probably had nutrient lockout. They are growing fine new leaves nice and green though older leaves turning yellow, some of them got brown spot

    What is the best way to put them back on healthy track?

    25L air pots
    2.5week old
    Coco medium
    Ph 5.8-5.9
    Ec 0.8-0.9
    Temp 27 (24/0)
    Hum 60
    Canna a,b, rhyzotonic, buddah tree silicon

    Flush with 3x pot size tap water and then 1/4 of your usual feed. Make sure PH is checked then too (5.8)

    That is why I check and calerbrate my Hanna pH pen before every use. You could mix a mild dose of nutrients and raise the pH to 7 pH and run it for a few times. That should get you where you want to be.

    at 3.0ph you get root damage, same as 8.0ph+
    as has been said flush the medium with the correct ph to try and reset it,
    then just feed as normal,

    if they are suffering stress, raise the light a little if you can
    that helps them recover that little bit easier

    We need calibrated pH meters for sure but it helps to get familiar with the number of drips or mils of pH down being used each time.

    To get down to pH 3 takes an awful lot of pH down

    We're aiming for roughly pH 6.0 let's say. pH 3.0 is 1000 times more acidic than that

    Hardly seems the case here... people like to reiterate so you can see what the consensus is. Every opinion helps when it comes to grows and some opinions differ vastly so the more input the better!

    If you knew the issue, why did you ask for help if you weren't going to take the advice, all practically sane thing from experienced growers all reasonable responses yet... Well i dont need to write it.

    Look flush them and reset. Simple, if you're looking for an alternative solution, chop and start again because nothing else ia gonna do anything. Listen to the advice or don't, no need to be antagonising about it.

    Good luck with your grow whatever you do.

    Ok iv got 8 2.5 week old plants in 25l pots. Root base isn’t spread yeat coz I’ve repotted them only 4 days ago. Flushing every single one with 75liters will make 600l in total which is insane. Is there any other way or is it the only way? Not trying to be rude just looking for some practical advice

    Yeah it's a lot but salt build up in the medium is annoying to get out id you messed the pH and solutions, beat way is Pop them in the shower, shower head below plants, slow run while you knock a nutrient solution up with water left over night for 24hrs, leave the natural tap water running through and then triple the feed amount, you can ph down at least with buckets of tap water while your actual solution mixes up and settles.

    One feed of incorrect ph won’t harm them... The issue most likely lies within your feed strength.. What’s your background Ec? Also theres no mention of your watering schedule in these 25L pots?
