    I like my EC with Maxi and Calmag at 1.6 at the very most, and I grow badass monster plants

    Around 4.5 grams of Maxi and 5ml of Calmag per gallon of R.O. water is all you need and it kicks ass. I have done the 7 gram gig and it sucks.

    Some people would say to run 5.8 because coco transfers cations the same way water does in hydro system. Some people have been running 5.8 for many years in coco with excellent results. If you really want excellent calcium and magnesium uptake you should be running pH at 7.5.
    Then maybe your scale is off then?

    Because 7 grams of Maxi and 5ml of calmag per gallon is way higher than 1.7 EC. And I'll bet everything I own, lol

    The facts are 5ml of CalMag per gallon of R.O. water is about .6 EC.

    7 grams of Maxibloom and 5ml of CalMag per gallon of R.O. water comes out to 2.1-2.2 EC.

    Much to high of an EC, than what you need

    Uptake of Calmag is better. Also it takes a few runoffs of higher PH nutes to even get your runoff PH at 6.2 with Coco. Been doing it a long time, and will never run PH below 6.2. I have no idea why some people say 5.8 with Coco?

    I'm having a small issue with a few plants right now, this one is the worst and a few others are similar. I am watering at ph 5.8-6.0 with 7g of maxibloom per gal with 1g of Epsom salt. My tap water is pretty mellow, not sure of the exact ppm, but its very good city tap water that has had very low ppms for me in the past just no ppm meter at the moment. I have previously had some cal/mag issues in coco using this water, with my limited diagnostic experience I was thinking either overfeeding or cal/mag? These are 9 stardawgs from seed, with some displaying no issues at all, some with a tiny bit of tip yellowing/burn, which is the only reason I thought overfeeding. They are in 5 inch pots of botanicaire coco which was rinsed well before use. Their environment is a little warmer than I would like, about 80-85 F, humidity around 40%. I cut the maxibloom down to 75% or so, 5.25g per gallon, for the last few feedings and watered them to a hearty amount of run off to make sure the coco was flushed of anything dried up etc. This is my first go with the K.I.S.S. and other than this issue it has been great, very simple, TONS of healthy white roots, really great. Anyone have a bit of insight? Thanks guys

    Run your PH at 6.2-6.5

    Is Maxibloom Lucas really that high EC at full strength? My plants are doing ok, but I'm sure more sensitive plants would be fried to shit by such a high EC.
    7 grams is way too much, you only need 4.5-5 grams per gallon. And 5ml calmag per gal. if running coco. Lower EC does great, your plants will smell better and love it.

    My EC runs at 1.7 using 7 grams per gallon maxibloom and 5ml per gallon SilicaBlast in tap water. I use it on seedlings and clones and many different types of weed without issue.
    I would bet everything your EC meter way off, lol
