There's the missing link! The 1050 ppm reading makes much more sense now. Mycos is a fungi that works with the microbes to break down organic matter in the soil to make nutrients available. Precursor 1 is sugar based, which feeds the microbes and helps them multiply. So your root zone is activated and is breaking down organic matter to let the soil feed the plant. So the plants are getting food from two sources.. The soil, and the bottles nutes. That explains the ppms being twice the level of what you are feeding with. Mycos, recharge, great white, mykos, are all bacteria and fungi products that active the soil so that the soil feeds the plant. Most of them recommend reducing the bottled nute feed by half if using one of those products.I did give a full veg nutes feeding on 9/6, which does seem to be about the time a lot of this kicked off. Symptoms and poor color really spread a couple days after. I have indeed been using percursor. In all cases, I've been using all the recommended components and proportions. I just flip flopped a little bit there with the half and full doses.
Quick edit: (Sorry, just now thinking of this) - I did add myco early on. Haven't treated any of them with any more of that since seedling stage, but figure it's worth mention. That's the only other thing I've added besides those couple half doses of calmagic.
It seems like a flush is in the works regardless. I've cranked out a bunch more RO water today. Sounds like my best bet is half strength Rx Blend feed in RO for the flush?
