    I'd just use your RO. IMHO.
    That sounds like a lot of carbonates the municipal is using to buffer the local water.
    It can't just be lime. They're adding carbonates for sure. It'll build up, and snowball in your media after a while.

    I don't like the sound of your tap water TBH :peace:

    yea me either I haven't been using it.. that's why I have been using mostly distilled or R/O with added calmag. on a lower dosage. usually about 3.75ml. If I do use it I make sure my PPM is about 200 PPM or lower.

    Just thought I might mention, when feeding full strength, in intervals according to the directions on the fertilizer, never pour this solution directly on the base of the plant, or the plant, always pour around the outer edge of the root base.

    This may not be a problem but just thought I should mention. I haven't grown in soil since the eighties.

    During spring run off towns increase the amount of substance to the town water. These other growers may be correct about using this town water. Seems to me, in spring time, I had to go to an independent well in one small town. The smell of (like chlorine) was overwhelming, but most of the year the town water was fine.

    The quality of the water used is very important.

    Yeah I agree about the water. Little too far out of range. Just asking to rule our variables.

    Okay I flushed them. I put 1 1/2 gallon of water with a PPM of 200 and a PH of 6.5 through there and let it all drain out. The plant in question had a PPM of 800+ and a ph of 6.4 coming out at first. I dropped this ppm down to around 370 by the end of the flush. The other plant had an even higher PPM of around 930, I brought it down to around 400 ppm by the end of the flush. I then added 1/4 strength Foliage Pro to 1/2 gallon of water and added half to each plant at the end of the flush bringing the PPM back up to around 425 for this plant and around 411 for my other plant. I will keep update progress in a couple days.

    I started a grow journal and have been pretty closely documenting everything the last week. Figure it will only help with increasing my grow potential.

    Also if you guys were wondering what was in my water here is a report. Omitted my city for personal reasons.

    Problem seems to be spreading upward a little bit to some more leaves. I think I'm just going to continue watering without nutrients, that is what was working and I went ahead and fucked it up by adding them lol. See if that stops it from spreading anymore. It has to be a toxicity of some sort.

    It takes at least 3 days to see any improvement. Likely longer.

    A little update. The plant seems to have stopped throwing out any more rusty spots. The leafs with the spots ended up yellowing, shriveling, and then dying off. But there isn't any new yellowing or leaves with brown spots other than the few that were already there. Also the other plant doesn't seem to have been affected, at least not as much for sure. I do have one question. There is one cola on the plant that looks extremely crazy. Seems like it has 4-5 nodes all in just the top half inch or so. Was wondering if this is normal. It looks pretty cool. Ridiculously big.
