Tag: EC

EC 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 the salt content of your nutrient solution 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.

If you need any help and advice, then sign up to our Cannabis Growers Forum and ask for help. We also have many guides to help you understand how Electro Conductivity affects your cannabis plants.
