In-House Nutritional Monitoring

Optimal Substrate pH and EC Levels

Note: Begin typing, then select your required full name listing that apepars in the drop down list.

Fertilizer, substrates, and water are the basic fundamentals for growing plants. A plant nutrition management and monitoring program starts with knowing what is in the pot.

In-house nutrient monitoring will provide you with key pH and EC information needed for a successful crop. If the substrate pH is too high, then interveinal chlorosis occurs. Lower leaf yellowing is the typical symptom that occurs if the substrate EC is too low. Careful monitoring of the substrate pH and EC will help to avoid nutrient disorders.
