NOVA line

like above. I am used to running the Lucas method with the 3 part line, But only using grow and bloom.
Been using that for the last 4 years or so.
Just recently i made the plunge to using the Nova grow, and flower.
the issue that has been arriving since i made the switch, is i am constantly finding my PH down to around 4.5-4.7 (almost every day)
I have been using PH Up to get it back in the zone.. But didnt haver to use much ph up or down when i was using just the GL plain juice..
anyone have any insight on this?
Thanks.
my my
btw, i grow in a RDWC set up...

I run hydro, but have always used GH 3part, and have never run into this problem.

I have had some drops before like this but my ppm would spike usually .. Are yours really high ??
Also my water is almost 7 out of the tap so I prefer to raise my PH with that in lieu of more chems...
Calcium buildup at the root area will also cause stuff like this .. When have you flushed last ?

Thanks Cubby, yea, i didnt have any problem when just using the GH's either.
Surfinc. i was shooting for around 900 ppm. so imo that isnt high.
i use RO water from our well. ph is generally 7.2 to start with, and ppm of 20.
this is a fresh batch, and i had NO plants in the system,, and i had cleaned out the old and rinsed out first..
was just curious if the low PH was normal with the NOVA line..
and it didnt matter if i was using the grow, or bloom, ph drop to 4.6-4.8 with either.
the girls were only rooted cuts for about a month, so i don;t suspect salt build up that quickly.

.

I grow DWC (5 gal tote) and use GH 3 part (+cal/mag) and distilled water.


My pH always acts like your NOVA run. IE swing from 6.2 ALL the way down to 4.8 (sometimes) in 20 hours

I have always chalked mine up to the really small size of the tote 3.5 gallon (of actual liquid) and using distilled not tap.

It seems to me know , that after the first 2 days of PHing up to get in my 5.6-6.0 range, it is holding.. just never experienced this using the reg. GH stuff.
late into flower i have been having a few leaf issues, and wanted to see if the Nova line would correct this...
Thanks for the replies...

well i am about 4 weeks in with one lady, and 3 weeks with the Indy dom.
Doesn't look like the Nutes was the issue.. No bugs seen under a scope,
So maybe it is my well water.?

even tho it tests at 20 ppm and ph is 7.3 starting out.?

well waters ph ca change with each rain. the more saturated the ground is with water the faster water travels into the aquifers. this faster travel of ground/surface water brings more nutrients(these are the things that make up the existing ppm), these unknown ppm can be either ph up ar ph down according to what type earth the water traveled thru. the exposure of these "nutrients" to oxygen causes the free radicals to gasify and the left behind compounds are what raises or lowers the ph
