- In hydroponics "pH" is an extremely important factor. When it is poorly monitored or controlled, plants can become sick or die. It is therefore recommended that pH is tested daily. Hy-Gen pH Up and Hy-Gen pH Down provide the grower with an added control in maintaining optimum pH levels and hence maximizing nutrient availability and plant productivity. A too high or too low pH can complicate the absorption of important nutrients such as iron, calcium, magnesium, etc.
- Generally the pH of the hydroponic solution should be 6.3. It is acceptable, however, to maintain the pH in the range of 6.0 to 6.5. For rockwool a lower pH of 5.8 to 6.0 is recommended. This allows for optimum nutrient solubility and availability.
HY-GEN® COMPLETE pH KIT is an easy and accurate way to keep track of the nutrient solution pH. The kit gives the added ability to adjust your pH using the pH UP and pH DOWN solutions provided. Adjusting the pH is quite easy and after some time and experience it becomes an art as you start to learn more about your plants and growing system.
The concentrated indicator solution allows you to obtain a reading by using just one drop in the test tube provided. The calibrated colour chart provided helps test your pH to within 0.5 of a pH unit. Testing and adjusting your nutrient solution regularly will ensure your plants are healthy and happy.
Testing and adjusting the nutrient solution pH is made easy with a HY-GEN Complete pH Kit. The kit comes supplied with a test tube, 1mL transfer pipette, 150mL pH Up, 150mL pH Down, colour chart and concentrated indicator solution. Testing only requires one drop of indicator.
