What Does EC Mean?

New growers will often ask, What does EC mean. Well, it stands for Electro Conductivity. When using salt based nutrients to grow cannabis, you can measure how concentrated the nutrient solution is by checking the Electro Conductivity..

The salts in the water, will conduct electricity easier, raising the conductivity of the solution. So, the more salts in the water, the higher the EC will be.

You can monitor EC with a meter or pen. This will help you monitor what your plants are eating, and it can guide you on what to feed your plant next.

See our Guides on how Electro conductivity works, for a full explanation.
