With plants, nutrient availability can be affected by soil or solution pH. pH levels outside recommended ranges can lead to nutrient lockout and nutrient deficiencies resulting in stunted growth and poor appearance. Control pH levels, minimize problems and maximize your plants' full potential with Botanicare's pH Up and pH Down solutions.
Botanicare's pH Up consists of a 29% concentrated Potassium Hydroxide solution that has an extremely low level of phytotoxicity and does not contain salts or chlorides.
Botanicare's pH Down consists of a 29% concentrated Phosphoric Acid solution that rapidly lowers pH levels with its gentle, non-burning formula.
pH refers to the acid content of the nutrient solution. For plants to be able to grow best it is important that the nutrient pH be slightly acidic - the range of 5.5 to 6.5 is considered ideal for most crops. Even when using quality hydroponic nutrients, the pH may fall out of range when poor quality water is used to mix nutrient solution, when pH unstable media is used such as many rockwool and gravel products and when plant growth rates are so high that the nutrient mix is thrown off due to rapid nutrient absorption by the crop.
