PH maintenance is an essential factor in any hydroponics setup. Without the plants being naturally rooted in the ground, excess ions build up in the system, creating a toxic environment for the plants. The PerfectpH solves this by removing this charged ion build up, creating the perfect pH environment for your plants.
In order for your plant’s roots to uptake the nutrients essential for growth, a slightly acidic pH range is required. When the the pH travels outside of this zone you will experience “nutrient lockout” where the plants do not absorb the nutrients properly, stunting the plants growth and disrupting their immune systems.
Plant roots in the earth’s soil can naturally buffer against problems such as excess acidity or alkalinity by dissipating a build-up of H+/OH- ions into the ground.
