Technical Details

Water Quality

The water you start with is very important and we highly recommend that you have a mineral content test done before you start any nutrient program. These tests are available at many labs and usually run around $35. We are happy to help interpret your results and make specific recommendations based on the lab analysis. Visit our website growers forum for more details and a list of labs we use. We can also custom blend nutrients to your specific water when necessary. Minimum order quantities will be required for this service.

pH

There is a fairly wide range of acceptable pH levels depending on what media or growing system you are using. For the most part, 5.5-6.5 will work for most crops and growing systems. Checking the pH of your water before adding HGV nutrietns and making any adjustments is recommended. The growth and flowering formulas will LOWER the pH of your nutrient solution. If the pH of your water is between 6-7, you will probably need very little to any adjustment for drain to waste growing. For hydroponic applications, monitor and adjust daily. If you’re starting pH (before adding nutrient) is higher than 7 or lower than 6, then use an appropriate product for lowering or raising the pH of the starting water to acceptable levels. 

Nutrient Strength

Depending on the crop you are growing, there is a very wide range of acceptable nutrient levels. These levels are usually measured in parts per million (PPM) or electrical conductivity (EC). We highly recommend using a meter that reads these levels so you can be certain you are feeding at the appropriate level for your specific crop(s).
