pH in Hydroponics:
Plants can only use the nutrient solution if the is pH corrected. Different nutrients are absorbed at different pH levels and so some hydroponic growers let their pH drift slightly, always toward alkalinity. In hydroponics the ideal range for most plants is between 5.2 to 6.2 although some plants may prefer extremes in acidity or alkalinity. It is always best to use pH water stabilisers when adjusting the pH of a solution. Always adjust the pH AFTER adding nutrients. Tap water is usually alkaline and the pH can range from 6.8 to 8.2 depending on the local water source.
When using your pH meter:
- Ensure you calibrate your meter frequently using pH calibration solution.
- Keep the probe moist and clean, if you see residue build up on the probe, clean gently with a soft toothbrush and vinegar.
- The probe is delicate! Avoid dropping or damaging the glass probe.
