What is the correct plant pH?
Resistance in the growers world is known as (pH) as the measurement of nutrient and biological ionic interactions in the soil and plant sap or brixx. In our years of growing agricultural plants we have discovered the perfect pH (resistance) for growth and epic yields to be 6.4, which allows for the perfect electrical (PME) conductivity for a superior attachment of nutrient polarities and health parameters for biology. If you do not control your resistance levels in your soil, your available nutrient uptake is always inefficient and locked out to a lesser or greater degree greatly effecting yields and results.

The Big Rush
If you move your pH to 6.4 you will make the nturients many times more available and you can cause an overload of nutrients rushing into the plant. In general, the further the operating pH of your ‘dialed in’ nutrient ratios are from the perfect nutrient uptake of 6.4, they will represent that much more of an overdose if you simply move your res to 6.4. For best results, always start off with a fresh res with at least 50% less nutrients than your normal protocol, when first beginning 6.4, and then slowly dial up the nutrients from there.

What does 6.4 pH do?
First and foremost, for the perfect grow, always maintain a 6.4 pH, which is the perfect level of resistance for maximum uptake of all nutrients. It is crucial. When just a little move from 6.4 pH to 6.5 is 10x whereas 6.4 to 7.4 is 100x difference in resistance. This is a 10x or 100x difference in nutrient uptake efficiencies! Every percent above 6.4 incrementally locks out primarily P, S, Si and Micros. While below 6.4: Ca, Mg, K and available Na (primarily). This is why the industry cannot get enough Calcium and Magnesium into the plant when its below 6.4 pH.
How to adjust pH efficiently.
Water today is slammed with: chlorine, chloramine, perchlorates, carbonates, bicarbonates, fluorides and hydrofluosilicic acid. When these are combined with nutrients and/or pH modifiers, they bond, cancel out, or complicate ionic exchanges – making pH (resistance) changes difficult and also cause “pH rebound”. When extremely potent and caustic chemicals are used to change pH, this reinvents the same scenario on a massive scale (not including health concerns). The pH of water is only the first step of properly dealing with pH. Second is the actual zone or soil pH. See (How to take a soil slurry pH sample.)
