pH and EC meters
The optimal growing environment is crucial for the health of your plants. This environment is generally achieved by, among other things, accurately measuring the pH and EC values using the appropriate equipment.
By regularly measuring the pH value, we know how to keep the environment stable - fluctuation has a detrimental effect on plants. A slightly acidic pH, usually between 5.5 and 6.5, suits most plants. By maintaining the correct levels, we make sure the plants can absorb the supplied nutrients effectively and develop to their full potential. If the pH value isn't optimal, you can adjust it as needed.
The electrical conductivity (EC) tells us how many nutrients there are in a solution. Again, we need to stay within optimum values. Too high an EC means over-fertilisation, which results in irreversible damage - fertiliser burn. The opposite results in a deficiency. Different plant species have specific requirements for ideal EC values.
Tip: if you don't know the optimal EC value for your plant, start at 1, gradually increase the fertiliser intensity and see how the plant does. If you see signs of over-fertilisation, cut back on the fertiliser with the next watering.
To get accurate measurements every time, use special solutions for calibration, cleaning and maintenance, which will extend the life of each device.
