Your nutrient pH, CF & temperature are vital. Get them right, and plants perform. Get the wrong, and you’ll have problems.

  • Target pH: 5.5 – 6.5 (ideally 6)
  • Target nutrient temperature: 18 – 21oC
  • Target CF: Depends on your water hardness and stage of growth

To get precise, easy nutrient readings there’s one brand to use – Bluelab. They’re proven performers and we’ve sold them for years.

Their moto’s success by simplicity – you don’t have to mess around with lots of buttons. Even calibration is simple – there aren’t any fiddly calibration screws - just a simple button.

All GroWell staff are certified Bluelab handlers – if you need help with a Bluelab product, get in touch.
