    Default PPM levels in my water mix

    Hi wondering if any of you guys can help me out here.

    I’m currently in early veg and now adding my nutrients and cal mag.
    But I e been reading about ppm levels and my tap water is 160ppm
    I have a 2gallon water tank.
    So I have added:
    2ml of cal mag
    1ml micro
    1.5ml gro
    0.5ml bloom
    Once I have added these my PPM is reading at 1400PPM
    And through my research this is too high????
    What can I do to bring the ppm down? Help!!!

    To bring the ppm back down youll have to add more water mate

    Your posts a little confusing though, switching between ml and gallon do you have a conversion chart for your ppm pen? EC is more common on here so not many people know what ppm equates to

    Edit: also seen youre feeding bloom when in early veg? You can drop that for now

    Few more details on the grow would be good mate, do you have a diary up?

    Without knowing which PPM scale you are using it's difficult to advise

    Early veg? An EC of 0.4/0.5 above base would probably be good... but it's more about how the plant is reacting rather than set numbers to follow
