I just got my meter to check ppms and my two in flower look to be in the mid 4000 range. Is this good or bad. And what should i be doing to correct this or get it to the right range. Any help would be appreciated.
A bit on the green side here, but 4K seems very high even in flower. I copied this below for myself and I believe the info came from @PurpNGold74. I am also not sure what medium you are using and the other factors. A support ticket would help everyone get you dialed in.
Generally speaking though, I follow this guidance and I hope I am a correct with the tag. I read a lot of threads
“? First Half of Flowering: 750-950 (your plants will be eating more as they grow,
so they’ll be taking in more nutrients)
? Second Half of Flowering: 1000-1600 (this is when your plant’s eating the most,
especially if you give it additives)”
A good flush can get you in a better range.
I would check the calibration of your meter. 4,000 is extremely high. You would be having some serious problem with your plants if it is truly that high. I expect you would be having low pH problems too.
I try to maintain 1,000 throughout the grow.
How old is your plant? Have you been feeding it and for how long? What are you feeding your plants?
Thank you that helps alot. I will check my next run off in a couple days and go back to straight water to get it down. My soil does have dr earth tomato bloom in it. Plus plant food in my water, that i will not be using anymore as ive been reading its not good.

Suggest a proper cannabis fertilizer. Jack’s, Fox Farm, Advanced Nutrients are all good products.
Haha thank you, big on wordplay.
Wow thats alot to take in. Let me do some studing on the products yall are talking about. Maybe my next run will be better.
I did a few more checks after understanding how to take a reading. They are more like 1100 to 1400. So for now no more feed. They are definitely mid way through flowering. Throcomes are clear best i can tell.
@TeNNWisKeY Thats a Ten all the way!!

Cant argue with what’s been said … still have a few Min to go but nice looking good job man
