What does a PPM meter do?
Keeping this in view, what happens when ppm is too high?
Adding a normal amount of nutrients makes ppm too high: This means you're probably using water that had high ppm before the nutrients. Try using nutrients made for “hard water”(water with a high concentration of minerals), such as Flora Micro Hard Water. This will lower the overall ppm.
Beside above, what should my PPM be in veg? seedlings keep around 200 ppm. i veg my plants at around 800-1000. and flower can be from1200-1500.
Also to know, what is the best ppm for hydroponics?
|Week||ppm range||EC Range|
Why Does My ppm keep rising?
The ppm of the nutrient and water solution in the reservoir rises as you add more fertilizer to the hydroponics system. Topping off the reservoir as the water evaporates may lead to higher ppm of fertilizer salts, which can damage your plants.
