Dealing with rising/falling ECs question ...

Currently in week 5-ish of flowering. Using the Vitalink nute regime.

 

Last but one nute solution I made up was EC of c.2.1 ... a day later it had risen to 2.3. So I topped up with water. This carried on, for a week ... rising EC, topping up with water.

 

This week, I decided to dial the nutes down a touch (I had been running at 4.5ml/L, I went 3.5ml/L).

 

Nutes started at and EC of 1.9 ... a day later fallen to 1.7, so I topped up with a jug from the leftover previous nutes to bring it up a touch.

 

I'm working on the basis that a rising EC means a thirsty plant, and a falling EC means a hungry plant ?

 

All else seems good .... not too much of a smell yet, but every seed is unique !

Usually right.

 

IMHO rising EC means recent overfeeding so plants stop eating. Falling EC means plants eating, which you want.

 

Next cycle, you can look at your notes, see that and not need to dial it back because you are at the right strength already.

 

Myself I never go over 1.4EC (700PPM)
