Achieving optimal plant growth starts with accurately preparing your nutrient solution. Follow the recommended schedule from the manufacturer and thoroughly stir the solution to ensure consistency. To measure the electrical conductivity, press the ON/OFF button on the meter and gently submerge the EC Pen into the solution after shaking out any trapped bubbles. Wait for the probes to adjust to the temperature before taking a reading, signified by a beep. The measured value in EC units will be displayed on the LCD readout.
Switching the unit of measurement is a breeze. Hold down the 'units' button until the display flashes, then cycle through the options with a quick press. For CF values, multiply the EC reading by 10. To achieve the desired strength, adjust the nutrient solution by adding more nutrients or diluting with water and take additional measurements until optimal levels are reached.
