Collection: pH & EC value

Measuring pH and EC is essential for hemp care . Cannabis plants such as hemp cuttings and seedlings need a pH of around 6 . Depending on the grow lamp, you need a different EC value. Find out more here!

  1. PH value:
  • What does pH value mean? The pH value provides information about the acid or base content of the fertilizer solution. An environment that is too acidic or alkaline can affect the plant's ability to absorb nutrients , thereby negatively affecting the plant's growth and health. Determining the pH value is very important !
  • Safety thanks to pH measuring device! By using a pH meter, you can measure the pH of the nutrient solution and adjust it if necessary. Ordering a pH meter online pays off! In our online grow shop we carry Bluelab, Milwaukee and strip tests for pH value. With our measuring devices you can measure the pH value precisely . Measuring pH is very easy with our products.
  1. EC value:
  • What does the EC value tell us? The EC value measures the electrical conductivity of the nutrient solution or fertilizer solution and provides information about the nutrient content .
  • Better do it with an EC meter from the grow shop! By using an EC meter you can determine, control and adjust the nutrient content in the nutrient solution. Measuring EC is easy, quick and precise with the EC meters from our online grow shop.
  • LED vs. NDL/HPS/sodium vapor lamp - big differences! Depending on the grow lamp, cuttings and hemp plants have different nutritional needs. Our gardener recommends an EC value of 2.5 to 3 for LEDs. For sodium vapor lamps we use an EC value of 1.5 to 1.8.
