A hugely important aspect of indoor growing. Here we look closely at how monitoring pH control is critical to a successful crop.
Whatever brand of nutrient you place your faith in, you ALWAYS need to consider how the pH in your reservoir is changing. I know it is tempting for the casual (polite way of saying lazy) grower to focus just on the EC, choosing to plod along in a cloud of blissful ignorance, harbouring the vain hope that “it’ll be reet. This lack of focus on your pH will quickly result in problems that as you have no information on, you will be clueless as to how to correctly rectify things. It’s a bit like as if you were drunk as fuck on your way home after a long night out, and just realised that you’ve dropped your house keys along the way. You’re not going to know where to look first and you can’t really see anyway, so it’s going to cost you considerable amounts of effort to sort this sticky little predicament out. Hang on a minute, that bench looks comfy though… It’ll be reet.
