Before planting Graines de cannabis seeds you have to measure pH and TDS levels of the soil

When you are more and Ganja with Graines de cannabis seeds in the ground, it is a necessary measure for TDS (total dissolved solids) and pH (acidity) of the soil that you will use. Keep the soil balanced with the right pH level and nutrients will help ensure that you grow healthy marijuana plants. One of the positive aspects of growth in the soil rather than a hydroponics system is that the soil acts as a buffer system for water and nutrients your Graine cannabis plants have access. Any errors in your TDS or pH levels will not have immediate negative effects. One weakness is that it is easier for nutrients to build in the ground, which can cause very high levels of TDS and pH lower web. The TDS and pH at the root could differ materially from what the values you have in the solution of fertilizer that you feed your cannabis seeds. Obviously, this can cause a lot of troubles. In addition, there are other factors which may determine how nutrients are supported by a culture cannabis plant. If it's cold in your own culture chamber, the leaves of your cannabis plant will not be properly evaporate moisture due to low temperature. This evaporation is a key element of the vacuum cycle that sucks nutrients through the roots, and without it, your cannabis plants will not take in all the nutrients available in the soil. This means that nutrients will start to build up in your soil, lowering the pH around the root system. High acidity in the roots limit the intake functions of the hair root, which exacerbates the difficulty of your cannabis plants will absorb nutrients. This is an excellent example of how the environment of your cannabis plant can become unbalanced, even if the TDS and pH levels in your nutrient solution are perfect. It is very important to measure pH and TDS fréquent- your soil every two weeks works well. So do not forget! Measuring soil levels is easy then start with the basics. You will mix a 1: 1 ratio of your soil around the roots and deionized water (water with TDS 0 and pH 7). Then you let this mixture sit for 24 hours, stirring occasionally. Then just the filter and measure the TDS and pH. Voila- your values are the values of mixing your soil!

What you need to measure the pH level in the soil and TDS
PH meter and-TDS
-Demineralized water (Water with 0 TDS and pH 7
-2 Measuring containers (able to contain at least six ounces!)
Cloth or coffee filters -4

To begin your test, remove three fluid ounces of soil around the roots and mix with 3 fluid ounces of distilled water in a container of your measurement. Let this mixture sit for 24 hours, but continue to stir occasionally. This way, you will ensure all the nutrients dissolve completely. After all in your solution is completely dissolved, pour through a filter in the other measuring cup. Keep repeating this process until you have a completely clear liquid. Now use your meter to determine the TDS values and soil pH of your marijuana growing. Best TDS values are between 750 ppm and 1500 ppm, depending on the maturation of a plant and the amount of nutrients it can absorb. The pH should be around 6. What if you do not have the right levels? Perhaps your pH is too low. If it is 5.5, for example, you'll want to raise the level closer to 6. The next time you give your water the plant, use water with a pH of 6.5 . The same method works to TDS levels.
