Oh and I was using connosuir, but I think this trend will run the same for all
Scuse me, why do you say BEFORE?
i always test ph after add nutrients(A+B in coco) am I wrong?
in your experienxe how many days PH value keep stable in water(after put in nuts+PH-?)

Sorry, but that doesn´t make much sense to me. Even Canna says to measure PH after mixing in the nutes. The amount of nutes you are feeding influences the PH. Like Canna Coco A/B lowers the PH with more concentration and Rhizotonic raises the PH level.

My RO comes out with PH 6.3. If I add Canna AB 16-18 ml/ 10 l and 5-10 ml/10l Rhizotonic, I end up with PH 6.0 without any adjustment. I try to keep the PH around 6.0. If my PH meter is off, I´m still in the adequate range between 5.8 and 6.2...

Peace

Personally I like to use different ranges for different stages of the plants life. For veg I try to stay around 5.9- 6.1, for the stretch I like 6.0- 6.2, mid flower 6.1- 6.3, and late flower 6.3- 6.4. I don't really care if the ph drifts out of those ranges too much. I make a new rez every night and start off at those numbers and by lights of things drift I up .2 or so. Key word is try. If I don't get my ph right, it's no big deal.

You didnt read what was posted...
This is what my Nutrient label says...

What if my pH is really high?
If you pH coming out of the tap, or after Reverse Osmosis is still about 8.0, we suggest that you using pH down and adjust your water to 7.0, then mix Supernatural Brand Nutrients. Certain mineral’s will not dissolve in when the water is too alkaline. So it best to first pH your water to 7.0 then mix.

My tap water comes out ph@9 so I need to ph before I add my nutrient...if my ph out the tap was 7 or under I would not worrie with ph before only after.

I know this is an old thread but some times it will help to ph before and maybe after adding your nutrients

Idk I always ph after when I grew in coco because specific nutrients made the ph fluctuate. Like silica blast from botanicare made the ph rise where as hygrozme or calmag plus made it go down. Tbh I usually mixed a batch and used them to adjust my ph. I was never worried if I was using 3 or ml per gallon of those additives as long as my ph is as 5.8 to 6.1 I was golden. I’d say measure after based on your nutrient regiment. This worked for me anyway.

You are right, if your water source comes with a ph level that high, it makes sense to adjust to 7.0 first. I talked to a scientist and he said, it´s the usual way to adjust to 7.0 first and then mix in the nutes and after that adjust again to the desired ph level.

But if you use pure RO things are different. Most PH meters cannot measure the ph accurately if the ppm is too low. So I can´t adjust the ph before mixing in the nutes using pure RO. But as the RO comes out relatively close to 7.0, it doesn´t matter.

I fixed my test at 5.8 but i know nuts are gonna change that slowly because i do level up them slowly as well, even more when adding pk

but i keep giving same dose of phdown (4.75ml/5L tape water+canna nuts), so it means my ph move slowly between 5.7 and 6.2, and the plants are great, they are much better than when i tried to fix my ph at 5.8 all the time...

don't focus on a "magical ph number", just don't switch from 5.7 to 6.3 in 2 waterings, to much stress for the ladies
