Dutchpro pH- Grow
Dutchpro pH- Grow is for reducing the pH levels of your nutrient solution, and it’s ideal for use in the vegetative phase of hydroponic growing systems because it provides a good source of Nitric Acid.
For your plants’ flowering phase, use Dutchpro pH- Bloom, which contains Phosphorous.
PH- Grow is highly concentrated, and the recommended pH is 5.8 to 6.5. You add small amounts to your nutrient solution until you reach the desired pH level.
This product offers several distinct features, and they include the following:
- Reduces the pH level of your nutrient solution
- It consists of concentrated 38% phosphoric acid
- It should always be kept handy along with its opposite, pH+
- Used to regulate the pH range outside of which your plants may suffer deficiencies
- It provides a good source of Nitric Acid, which is highly useful during a plant’s growth stage
- It requires handling with care as it is corrosive and can be dangerous
How Does it Work?
PH- Grow works to reduce the pH of most fluids. In hydroponic or aeroponic growing, it’s necessary to keep an eye on the pH levels and ensure that they stay within a specific range, which differs depending on the species of plants and other conditions.
Nitric acid is known for its beneficial qualities and is ideal in the vegetative phase. Most plants need a pH range between 5.5 and 6.5 when grown in hydroponic systems, as this is the optimum range in which plants can easily absorb all the nutrients given to them. If the pH veers out of this range, then your plants will not be able to absorb certain nutrients and therefore risk developing deficiencies and possibly even run a greater chance of disease. This product is added in small quantities to your nutrient solution to keep it within this range.
How to Use?
PH- Grow works during your plants’ Vegetative/growth phase. You firstly measure the pH of your nutrient solution by taking a small sample with a pipette and testing it with a digital tester.
You might find that it does not need adjusting. But if it does, draw off 500ml of solution in a jug and add a small quantity of the product with a pipette. Stir this well to mix.
Now add this back into your reservoir in small stages. Stir well after each addition and test the solution again in the same way.
Do this until the pH is in the desired range, generally between 5.5 and 6.5.
Please note: If pH Up and pH Down ever come into contact, they will react violently and even cause an explosion, even in small quantities. Be extremely careful when handling these two types of products, as they are corrosive and will usually cause irritation to your skin and burns on your clothing. Always keep well out of the reach of children and animals, and take appropriate precautions when using these.
