    GOAL: How to lower ppms in all organic grow indoors


    I recently just top fed my girls and checked the ppms and they are wayyyyyyyy over. Is there anything I can do to lower the ppms in the soil. I’m growing all organic. Also I ph the water at like 6-6.5 but when I just checked the run off the ph is around 5.5-5.8. But I mainly want to know if there’s anything I can do to lower the ppms. They are in the 2k’s which is incredibly high and I’m in fear of the plants getting nute locked and totally ruining my crops.

    I have 3 strawberry lemonade fem phenos, and 3 blue kush autos I should have only fed the blue kush but I fckt up and wasn’t thinking straight when feeding. They are 23 days old and the the 3 autos are 3-4days into flower.

    I used distilled bottled water with ppm at 1 and ph at 5.5 but I raised the ph to 6.4. When Checking the run off is when I discovered the ppms for the first time. I went and decided to try to keep flushing it with distilled tap water at a ph of about 6.5. So after feeding and discovering it I waited about 5-6 hours to hit it with another straight watering like mentioned above. Tap water ppm is around 90.

    I accidentally fed my strawberries that I’m planning to keep in veg for 4-5 months before picking the one mother after taking clones and harvesting to decide. But I gave each plant one cup of bloom in their 3 ,5gallon fabric pots. As well as kelp meal; 6tbs per plant (10 was recommended, 2tbs per gallon), bat guano; 5 tbs 5 gallon/ 4tbs 3 gallon, alfalfa meal; half cup 5gallon, half half a cup 3gallon, fruit and bloom (happy frog) 1cup, 5 gallon/ half cup 3gallon.

    Ppms are around 21-2200 in run off.

    Ph 5.5-5.7

    18×6 light cycle; lights dimmed to about 2.5. (2sf2000), ocean forest with 1/3 coco loco

    Should I just continue flushing the soil with the 90tds and 6.8 distilled tap water? How many times a day?

    Please help or lead me in the direction.

    Please please please!!!

    Thank you 🙏🏼
