Plants need to have fresh nutrients available for healthy
growth. Ensuring regular reservoir changes every week is essential.
pH and electro conductivity should be checked while mixing the nutrient
solution. While the electro conductivity reading will help determine the
amount of dissolved nutrients, the pH reading will help in maintaining
pH values at levels that will enable plants to absorb the nutrients.
Leaching or rinsing should be carried out one week prior to harvest.
This can be done using regular tap water through the system to wash out
excess salts that remain in the growing medium.

information on various aspects of nutrients, pH, EC etc.
