what to do when coco dries out and causes lockout?

hello everyone. everything was going smooth as hell but they overgrew their pots quite quickly and they dried out a few times. not to the point where they were wilted but the pots were light as hell and the coco was super dry. i think this has caused a lockout issue for me.

feeds are ~600 ppm jacks and calnit, and ph is 6.2
i had it around 5.8 for a while but since went to 6.2
they honestly look hungry but i know at this feed rate with jacks they shouldnt be at all.

i have since foliared with extremely light nutrients/calmag twice to try and keep them healthy while they are locked out.

i flushed the hell out of them with 250 ppm mix and runoff wasnt anything too crazy on pH or ppm. the ones with the highest ppm runoff looked the healthiest actually.

today i got all my blumat parts in and just finished getting them installed so no more dry outs unless something fails. i filled the res with ~650 ppm base nutrients and pH is 6.2

It is possible to have off gassing issues?
Anything new in your room?
Never have issues with coco drying. Plants wilt but after watering perk again.

no nothing new. maybe they are just underfed. i dont normally run coco. i know coco tends to rob calmag away from the plants in the root zone when it dries out so maybe thats whats happening.

just feed normally, all the flushing is probably making them hungry. coco drying out a bit is no big deal, specially if the plants didn't wilt.

You should try bumping up your nutes a little bit to around 700 ppm. Some strains are hungrier than others for certain nutes. What week are you in?

Are you running CO2, or is this grow located in an area where indoor air could contain aditional CO2 from occupants exhaling? I noticed while living and growing in a small house that nutrient ppm (also using Jack's here) had to be increased to 1200 ppm in some circumstances during winter when the house couldn't be vented due to sub-zero outdoor temps.

i will remix my nutrients tonight to 700 ppm at the 1/.67 and go from there. they honestly just look hungry to me but i just didnt think they could be at that strength.

im using royal gold tupur, no CO2. i have it but not running it til they are vegging happily.
