The perfect pH

The ideal pH range for a healthy plant is between 5.2 - 6.2

A pH environment high in alkalinity (above 7.5) prevents the roots from consuming the available iron, copper, zinc, manganese, and boron ions in their vicinity,

A lower pH, acidic environment  (less than 6) prevents the roots from accessing phosphoric acid, calcium, and magnesium because they lose their solubility.

If the pH drops to between 5 to 3 with temperatures above 26 degrees Celsius, plants become susceptible to fungal diseases.

pH is actually a measurement of the quantity of the hydrogen ions present in a solution.  The ions impact the acidity of the solution and how it will react chemically. pH is defined as the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration. The scale measures from 0 (acid) to 14(alkaline)  with 7 being neutral.

The pH management of the soil/nutrient solution/water is an essential element of growing. Although
