Bluelab EC and ppm pens
The Bluelab EC Pen and Bluelab ppm Pen are the latest innovation for hand held conductivity meters and the ultimate handy solution for measuring conductivity.
Hydroponic growing lets you give the best care possible to your plants. The quality of care is in your control.
The Bluelab EC and ppm pens measure how much food the plant has available. You have the option of either the Bluelab EC Pen or the Bluelab ppm Pen.
The Bluelab EC and ppm pens provide a compact, quick and handy way to manage the success of your crops to ensure they have the nutrients they need. Teamed with our Bluelab pH Pen, you have a handy, convenient and accurate system for ensuring optimum plant growth and health.
The Bluelab pH Pen, Bluelab EC Pen and Bluelab ppm Pen range has been specially developed as an affordable and effective option for hobby or small scale growers.
Why is measuring conductivity vital to the success of your crop?
Plants eat. They get their nutrition from minerals but they can only get all the minerals they need if certain conditions are right. A key thing that affects food uptake is whether your solution is acid or alkaline. This is measured in pH and a handy tool tool to measure the pH is our Bluelab pH Pen.
Once you have measured the pH using the Bluelab pH Pen and know your plants can get at the food, you then then to measure how much food is available. This is referred to as conductivity and is measured by either ppm or EC. This is where the Bluelab EC Pen or Bluelab ppm Pen comes in. If you are not sure which pen is applicable to you please refer to your nutrient manufacturer.
