Measure pH level of water or liquids like fertilisers used in hydroculture

Each plant prefers a particular pH level, in general slightly acidic (pH: 5,5-6,0)

pH is very important in hydroculture and organic as well as regular soil gardening. pH is measured on a scale of 1-14 with 7 being neutral. Acids are lower than 7 and alkalis (bases) are above 7. When the pH is not at the proper level the plant will lose its ability to absorb some of the essential elements (nutrients) required for healthy growth. For all plants there is a particular pH level that will produce optimum results. This pH level will vary from plant to plant, but in general most plants prefer a slightly acid growing environment (between 5.5-6.0), although most plants can still survive in an environment with a pH of between 5.0 and 7.5. When you are growing hydroponically, checking and adjusting pH is a simple matter.

You can measure pH in a solution with the following product.
