    Earth worm castings seem to have done the trick 🙂👍

    I never use cal mag. Plenty of calcium in tap water. And my nutes have magnesium. So no need for a soil grower like me.
    I use earth worm castings as a ph buffer. Never had any issues.

    Thank you...do you know of a decent organic form of cal mag?

    It’s ph neutral... I believe it’s a buffer too. It might help if ph is the issue. You really need to know the ph in the soil... because if the ph range is good the Epsom salt won’t kill off bad bacteria.

    Thank you ...will Epsom salt help though?

    Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate. Cal - mag is magnesium and calcium. A little different.

    No problem. Might want to check the run off water for ph too. If ph was an issue, a simple flush can bring things back to normal.
    But you need to know the ph in the soil. Take note of the ph going in, and the ph coming out.
    Let us know what you find.

    It's was stagnant in an empty container so a good chance that was the problem will just use phed filtered water from now on thanks for your help

    Few things... looks like a ph Issue, but how did you collect the rain water? Roof/Gutter system collection comes with containment’s and bad bacteria that can cause issues like this too. Also, how long did the rain water remain stagnant before feeding the plants? Stagnant water is a perfect breeding ground for bad bacteria.
    why not use regular tap water?

    Remember to give it a cal mag supplement also. With rain water you don’t have calcium or iron in it. ☺️
