pH and EC Management

Monitor, maintain and reduce pH and EC levels. 

pH Levels are important when working in hydroponics, the plant nutrients consist of 12 salts and these are more readily available to plants at different levels of pH moving itself up and down to take in the different nutrients that it requires. 

Try to keep yourself within 5.5 and 6.5 or if you'd like to be more exact 5.8 to 6.0

But remember the pH fluctuation means the plant isn’t getting a nutrient that it requires and its moving the pH up or down to take in the needed nutrient, always pay attention to what your plant is asking for and not just use acids to control the pH rather find what nutrient its deficient in replenish it and move the pH back to the desired level. 

EC truncheons read the nutrient strength in the water, showing you either the plant is taking in more nutrients or water allowing you to monitor and keep on top of the plants needs.

Our range of pH and EC management products includes Bluelab Truncheon Bluelab pH pens, Growth Technology pH Buffer and Essentials pH meters.
