    That pen looks like a snider m8. But as long as it gives you accurate readings....fair enough.
    What ph pen you been using?

    N that soil tester?....return that. Get your money back. Shite.

    But plants look like they perking up a bit. Not as droopy n stuff, so keep at it. Hard to tell in the pics, but is they getting a bit greener? Or still pale looking. One of those middle pics.....looks pure yellow.

    Many here use and have great success with the essentials PH pen, they also do an EC pen

    You'll also need some calibration fluid for them.

    All you need....as long its coco your actually growing in, is a decent PH pen. And a decent EC pen.

    Add your nutrients to water, untill you have desired EC. Ph to 5.8 using ph down.
    Feed every day. When they start looking hungry....up the A&B to raise your EC by additional 0.1-0.2.
    Better to underfeed than overfeed imo. So easy does it.

    Last thing a always do, before pouring my feed through pot is CHECK PH n get it in range before pouring it in. Usually always 5.8 in veg, a might increase a little in flower.
    Pour enough through pot to get at least 20% runoff. Everyday......unless the plants are small n a good root system has not been established, then its every other day to let the roots go searching.
    This helps wash out any salt build up. And keeps ph at root zone usually in the sweet spot.

    Theres not really much more to growing in coco than that for me anyway lol.

    UPDATE

    My EC pen came and it was shit so just bought one for 40 that should of been 80. (See in pic?

    I've been feeding and watering each day and I've cut a few leaves to allow light to shine on all colas

    Run off: Ph 6.7 still
    EC 0.4/0.5

    I'm I week 7 so I think early veg. They looking good. So should I carry on with this formula? One plant has slight white tips on one of the colas an leaves. (See pic)

    Oh and also. What should my EC be of the feed I mix



    Run off

    E.c shoukd be round the .8-1 roughly . Runnoff well if you dont have probs .no need as that can cause you to chase your tail but anything over .2ish over feeds you need to back off .

    I have a strain that has 1 going in and 1.25 coming out and look flawless . Sonits not anything written in stone .


    Your plants seem pale and tips yellowing so i would up the feed .give a calmag foliar .. unless its the damn lamp giving false indications

    only reader i recommend is the bluelabs truncheon. a bit more than a regular ec pen but it never needs calibrating and has a long guarantee.
    been using my for nearly 8years no probs. at times i didnt use it for months. jus be sure to run thru tap water and shake dry after use.
