Ph problem how to fix?

I’ve been using a broken ph pen.
I cleaned it and calibrated it with 7.0-4.0 solutions.
It will read 8.0 when two other meters know to be correct show 6.5.
As a result I’ve been watering way too acidic around 5.
Leaves are discolored and showing brown spots and purple edges.


How do I water now? Should I just resume 6.3 or overcompensate a little too correct the ph?
I just did a light foliar feed 1 ml cal-mag and 2 ml 6-4-4 liquid grow.

@Nyslide62 what substrate are you using? The substrate will be the deciding factor.

MDBuds I’m in a soil mix 50/50 Ocean Forest-Happy Frog w/added Perlite.
I realized after the fact that the Perlite was miracle grow and has added fertilizer.
I watered at 6.8 with 0.5 ml Rapid Start, 2.5 ml cal mag, and 5 ml 6-4-4 in 4 gallons of dechlorinated tap water last night.
The leaves look happier this morning, not drooping as much.
Thanks

To much nitrogen will cause leaves to turn brown and yellow on the tips and leaves will brittle i think the perlite MG is the problem. I keep seeing problems with the MG
