In many cases, there’s a hidden problem that blocks plants from absorbing nutrients. The problem involves what chemists call “pH”. pH term describes the relative alkalinity and acidity of the water and root zone media your plants grow with. If you want your hydroponics plants to grow quickly and produce fantastic harvests time after time, you need to carefully balance the pH of your hydroponics root zone and nutrient water.
You’ve got to be a bit of a chemist to do this, and you’ve got to use Advanced Nutrients pH Up and pH Down to carefully regulate pH levels so plants absorb maximum nutrients and grow well.
Get yourself a pH meter and read your root zone and nutrient water daily if you’re using rockwool, volcanic rock, coco coir, soil, sphagnum moss, aeroponics or other types of root zone media. You’ll usually find that pH needs to be adjusted. Guess what? If you don’t adjust pH to optimum levels, your plants will grow slowly, produce teeny weeny harvests, or even die.
Our pH Up is a pharmaceutical grade version of potassium that immediately increases hydroponics pH without harming plants.
