Dutch Pro pH Up


What is Dutch Pro pH Up?

Dutch Pro pH Up is a concentrated alkaline solution that comprises 30% 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 Dutch Pro pH Up?

Dutch Pro 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 Dutch Pro pH Up work?

Dutch Pro 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. Dutch Pro pH Up is ideal for adjusting smaller volumes of nutrient solutions.

Why would I need Dutch Pro 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 Dutch Pro 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 25% potassium hydroxide.
  • Can be used to adjust the pH of almost any liquid.

How to use Dutch Pro 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. 


Dutch Pro pH Up

Dutch Pro pH Up contains 30% 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 Dutch Pro 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 ear 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.
