    That's very similar to the RO Buddie system I use from Amazon. Replacement filters on Amazon are pretty cheap too. My PPM has crept up to 22 PPM from 8 over the last few months. Probably time to change the carbon and sediment filters. RO membrane is supposed to be good for up to 500 gallons.

    I've been using 1 tsp/gal of GH CaliMagic.. guess it's not enough. Just going to add an extra tsp to my 3 gallons.

    Calcium/Mag deficiencies usually show up during veg.. kinda surprised to see it at this point.

    Did you ever go all the way up to 4ml/liter on the AN nutes?

    I dont freak out too much just cause the plants arw just self regulating by taking what it wants outa the leaves.

    But if your plants are growing vigorously it can use up stuff quick.

    After i get something like this ill pull the affected leaves off that way ill know if my treatment was successful by seeing if any new leaves become affected

    My story with advanced nutes is funky

    I ran them for years no problems.

    Then i started getting weird deficiencies the last grow.
    I thought it was because my sprayer went down but now im thinking my nutes went bad?

    I will be fair and honest in saying i dont think there is anything wrong with advanced nutes except the price:)

    Because i fully admit to not storing the bottles properly and they where subjected to temp extremes because i shut my grow down for about a year so i stuck it in an outdoor shed for storage lol

    But anyways i got the same wierd deficiency this time and cal mag did not help so i shit canned the rest of my an bottles.(they will feed flowers in the ditch this summer)


    Another HUGE pet peeve of an is that it stains roots. For the last 7 years i have had off white roots.

    So i wanted a high quality food grade nutrients that are clear.

    Im testing chem gro 4-20 and so far it is excellent:)

    I did take it to 4 ml before but i just recently got a new ppm meter and was blown away when i saw how high 2-3 ml per liter goes.

    Could be my water has changed over time as i havent had it tested recently.?

    But i just cant give my plants something that is fucking them up lol
    This run i Have going definitely is not my best work ha ha

    Yeah 3ml/l of the AN M/G/B plus 5ml/gal of CaliMagic plus 2ml/gal of Hydroguard puts me around 1350ppm starting with 8ppm RO water.

    The funny thing is my new nutrients must be way more concentrate cause i olny used like 500ppm to grow the plant in veg and slowlybumped up

    Im at like 900ppm now and i will bump it 2 more times till i hit week 4 then i will start cutting it back as i get closer to chop :)
