Through the life of the plant, growers often monitor certain factors affecting plant growth in order to produce high quality crops. One factor indirectly affecting plant growth is pH of the growing medium. A pH of 7 is considered neutral, a lower pH is acidic and a pH above 7 is alkaline; but producers of container grown plants need to understand just what these numbers represent and how the pH of the growing medium can indirectly influence plant growth.

SUNSHINE GARDENS Kamloops BC has all the equipment and monitoring devices you need PLUS the technical "know How" to support any or all of your pH - EC or TDS requirements.


PH and TDS

Plants, whether they are growing in a hydroponic system or a soil system, require nutrients. Choosing the right nutrient formula is only 1 part of the total equation. Maintaining the proper nutrient strength can have a significant impact on a plants growth and overall performance, therefore any serious grower should have a TDS or EC meter available. Even after adjusting the strength of the nutrient solution to meet the plant’s needs, the nutrients still may not be available to the plant if the pH is not is not within the proper range. Thus, a pH meter is a vital piece of equipment that should be a part of every growers arsenal.
