    Default High pH in hydro, but no ill effects

    Weird one here, using canna aqua Flores in my Wilma, also have an airstone in there. Tested my ph yesterday and got a reading of 7.4 so I really calibrated my meter, tested it, works fine, made up a feed for my Coco hand watered baby's and the pH was at 6.5 which is where it normally sits, so I'm confident my meter is ok.
    The issue is, my plants look really healthy..... Any ideas?

    Here's a handy chart of nutrient uptake according to PH ranges...

    here is a Hydro ph chart, even at 7.4 you are only locking out a few elements,


    phosphorus would become a major problem once your in full flower same as manganese,
    isn't causing an issue yet, but it will later down the road aka full flower,

    Hmmm nicew one for that monster, i was due a look on a chart due to my mag / cal def starting. i think actually i have over fed the 2 plants in question, turning my media acidic, thus dropping ph out of ca range. I guess i should put them in the bath a flush out... thinking about it i'm such a lazy ass stupid stoner. the feed i made too rich i could have just watered it down, but na lazy bollox here wanted another spliff. lol. funny how you find answers with ease on here sometimes. big up thctalk
