Canna pH Up


What is Canna pH Up?

Canna pH Up is a concentrated alkaline solution that comprises 20% Potassium Hydroxide. It can be used to raise the pH level of almost any liquid, and mostly a plant’s nutrient solution. 

What is the use of Canna pH Up?

Canna pH Up is necessary for the growth and bloom phase of a plant growing in hydroponics or aeroponics. It’s used to raise the pH of the nutrient solution to adjust it to be within a certain range required to grow these plants.

How does Canna pH Up?

Canna pH Up should be added with controlled doses to raise the pH of the nutrient solutions. After mixing the small doses thoroughly with the nutrient solutions, it should be measured with a calibrated pH meter to reach the desired reading. Canna pH Up is ideal for adjusting smaller volumes of nutrient solutions.

Why would I need Canna pH Up?

It’s necessary to keep your nutrient solutions’ pH within a certain range when you’re growing plants in hydroponics or aeroponics. While different plant species have different requirements, in general, most plants like a pH of 5.5% - 6.5, and Canna pH Up is used to lower the acidity of the nutrient solutions to be within this range by adding the correct amount.

Description and components:

  • Suitable for smaller volumes of nutrient solutions.
  • Comprised of 20% potassium hydroxide.
  • Can be used to adjust the pH of almost any liquid.

How to use Canna pH Up?

  • Add controlled doses.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Measure with a calibrated pH meter to reach the desired pH reading.
  • Cautious: pH up and down can cause severe burns. It should be kept away from children. pH Up and Down can react very violently if mixed; use separate measuring gadgets when adjusting the pH values.


Canna pH Up

Canna pH Up contains 20% Potassium Hydroxide and can be used in growth and bloom to raise the pH value of a nutrient solution.

Potassium Hydroxide also provides a source of Potassium, which can be used by plants in bloom.

When growing indoors, the pH value of nutrients fed to plants needs to be controlled. Plants are able to absorb nutrients more easily at a pH value of between 5.5 – 6.5. For plants to perform to their full potential pH will need to be monitored and adjusted at regular intervals( daily if possible).

Adjust pH by adding a small amount of Canna pH Up to the nutrient solution, then recheck the pH value, repeat this until the pH reaches the value required

Note - pH up and down can cause severe burns to keep out of the reach of children. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

pH Up and pH Down react violently if they come into contact with each other.

Never mix them together. Use separate measuring equipment when adjusting pH values.
