This all depends on the lights that you are using and what types of plants you have.

pH crash...what type of injection have you been using?

What's your KH?

How do you measure your levels?

Do you have a pH controller?

What's the capitol of Michigan?

If you've got a good fertilizing routine, I agree, they should do fine.
