By measuring the EC of your feed, you can get an idea of how many dissolved salts (nutrients) are in your water. So, you should buy the best EC meter you can afford. This is because it will give you more reliable, accurate, readings of your feed.

If you are growing cannabis with salt based nutrients, it is essential that you know what your plant is eating. EC is the most commonly used by growers, rather than TDS or PPM. As a result, you should make it easy on yourself, and buy an EC meter.

Why You Need to Monitor EC in Cannabis

If the EC of your feed is too high, then your plants will have too much food available to them. If they eat too much, your plants will start to suffer with Nutrient Excess issues. Cannabis doesn't eat a lot, compared to other plants. As a result, they can easily be overfed if you follow the manufacturers guidelines.

By monitoring EC, you can gradually increase your feed in measurable increments. This will ensure you are not over feeding your plant.

By monitoring the EC, you can easily tell if you plant needs more, or less food:

  • If the EC, of the reservoir or run off is dropping after feeding, your plant would benefit from more food in the water.
  • If the EC of the run off, or reservoir is rising, you are over feeding your plants.
