The key to understanding pH Simple Chemistry.

Conventionally, we use products with nutritional values to increase pH. Typical components are Potassium Hydroxide, Potassium Carbonate, Potassium Bicarbonate, and Potassium Silicate. It’s vitally important to consider the nutrient value, just as with adding pH down components,  of these products. Moreover, ensuring that additional Potassium PPMs are accounted for won’t cause any antagonism with other nutrients in the solution.

Further to the topic of pH, we must consider the buffer capacity. Buffers are pair molecules of acids and their conjugate bases, commonly phosphoric acid and phosphates. If we have overly buffered solutions, it can retard plant growth due to ion antagonism.

We characterized buffers by the pH range over which they can maintain a more or less constant pH—the more acid-base pair molecules in the buffer solution, the greater its buffer capacity or resistance to drift. Having a large buffer capacity in the solution can maintain stable pH levels; however, too high can affect chemical interactions and nutrient uptake efficiency. Therefore, getting the quantity right to maintain stable pH with minimum buffering ions in solution is critical for optimum nutrient use efficiency and plant performance.

pH Simple Technology

Mixing up a reservoir of fertilizer solution is a carefully balanced chemistry experiment. The way that fertilizers react in concentrated form versus diluted form takes on very different characteristics. The way in which you add fertilizers together, and the order in which you add them, can have very different outcomes if basic rules are not followed. Some fertilizers do not play nice with each other until they are fully diluted. This makes them more susceptible to negative reactions which render them unavailable to plants costing you money and lost productivity. Every Ion in the Canna Growth Sciences line has been precisely calculated to maximize the nutrient use efficiency of our complete product line. Every tank mix for the corresponding week’s feed has been precisely calculated to balance the pH and buffer capacity of that mixture. Always add Canna Growth pH up Buffer to the tank before adding additional products and the rest will ‘Simply’ take care of itself.

A few tips on proper tank mixing:

  • NEVER combine concentrated products without water
  • ALWAYS side pail powder products into a slurry with water before adding to the tank/reservoir
  • ALWAYS dilute concentrated liquids with water before adding them to the tank/reservoir
  • ALWAYS allow mixtures to mix thoroughly for at least 10 minutes before applying to plants
  • ALWAYS follow manufacturers direction on product Order of Addition for all products in the mixture
  • ALWAYS add acids to bases. Mix in products with high pH first before adding products that are acidic.

You guessed it, it’s all taken care of when you use the Canna Growth Sciences product line.
