An easy-to-use meter for you who really want to keep track of your crops.
What is your pH in the water, how much nutrients are left in the water, what is the temperature of the water.
If you have problems that you do not understand the cause of or want to maximize your result, this meter is worth its weight in gold. In the Swedish manual, you get a list of the values at which different crops thrive best.
The right pH value is important for your plants to feel good and absorb nutrients in the best way.
The EC value shows how much nutrition there is in the water. Some plants are hungrier than others and consume more nutrients than water and some become eutrophic if you replenish with the same proportion of nutrients each time. With this meter you do not have to guess.
The neutral PH value is 7.0. Most plants thrive best between 5.2-6.5.
When growing Hydroponically, it is important to keep track of the EC value, especially how it changes. The EC meter is a way of measuring how much nutrients and water your plants absorb. If you have an EC starting value, you can check after 1-2 days how much nutrition and water your plants drink. If the EC value drops, the plants drink more nutrients than water and then you need to replenish more nutrients. If the EC value rises after 1-2 days, the plants need more water.
Also keep track of the color of the leaves. If the plant turns dark green and the leaves burn at the end, it is a sign of too much nutrition (too high EC value) you need to add more water.
If, on the other hand, the plants are too light in color, the reason is often too little nutrition (too low EC). Is the pH value correct? (too high or low prevents the plant from absorbing nutrients) so you add more nutrition.
With a meter, you do not have to guess and can understand if it is not growing properly.
It comes with three bags of Buffer Powder. With these, you easily mix into calibration fluid to calibrate your meter. If you need more calibration fluid, you can buy more bags here
