Importance of pH in Hydroponics and Use of pH up & down solutions

Know in detail about pH in Hydroponics.

As soil conditions started degrading thereby affecting the availability of arable land, the need for Hydroponic farming has become an alternate and best solution. The reason for soil degradation can be considered due to an increase in pH of the soil, and only pH up and down powder from Hygronics can curb the deterioration caused by imbalance. The pH is measured from 1 to 14 and is divided into acidic and alkaline:

  • 1 to 7 acidic
  • 7 to 14 alkaline

Why pH is important in Hydroponic Systems?

For plants to achieve optimum growth, the pH of the available media and water should not be exceeding 7, also the ideal pH has to be between 5.8 and 6.2. Right now, the soil pH has become alkaline due to too many chemicals being used in the soil, thus resulting in deterioration of the soil performance. As the pH of the media increases, their fertilizer consumption decreases, and it affects the health and growth of the plants. Thus, a pH up and down kit is required to balance the levels.

How to keep the pH of Hydroponic Systems at a consistent level?

As per the current scenario, it’s time that we put the use of soil to rest and go for alternate options and solutions like Hydroponic farming where cocopeat and others are used as a growth medium. This also helps our zero dependence on soil and its pH level. All we need to do is, have media like low EC water, low EC cocopeat, perlite, hydroton, leca etc., and grow our plants with good Hydroponic practices, bringing pH up and down for soil as per the need of the system

How do you use pH up and pH down Hydroponics?

Our Hydroponic pH down solution brings the available pH from alkaline to acidic with help of the expert Hydroponic consultants. Whereas our Hydroponic pH up solution is to be used to bring the General Hydroponic pH up only when the pH goes too low or acidic and does not fall within the ideal pH slab i.e., 5.8 to 6.2. (Note: Make sure the pH up and down solutions are used to reach the ideal slab of good Hydroponic practices.)

Higronics gives you the best solutions for pH up and down for Hydroponics and our nutrient solutions are also pH balanced.
