Hi there mate the ph rise you are seeing is the result of your plants simply taking up water and/or nutients
from the soil. if you are worried about to high a ph level you can add a little bit of liquid sulphur to your feed
I use dolomite lime and mix it thru my soil pre grow which can help stabilize the ph a bit.

I don't do much soil, but I would try adding 2 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a gallon of water and that will kill any fungus or bacteria that may be invading your soil. That's how I deal with bad bacteria in hydro. Hope that helps. Good luck with the rest of your grow
