Dutch Pro PH Down Grow is a control acid that will lower the pH in your nutrient solution. So what makes it different from standard pH downs? Dutch Pro use different types of acid for different phases of plant growth. Dutch Pro PH Down Grow consists of 38% nitric acid which is better for plants in the vegetative stage. The reason being, as the acid breaks down it delivers a little extra nitrogen to your solution, which the plant needs more of during the grow stage. “Regular” pH down acids tend to be very strong, only needing a few drops to make a big difference. The concentration can be as high as 81% and can make accurate adjustment difficult. They are far more corrosive. Dutch Pro PH Down Grow is 38% is easier to use safely and accurately!
Don’t feel like you’re being short changed here either! Dutch Pro Ph Down Grow costs about half as much as other 1L sizes of pH down, so it still works out great value for money. Dutch Pro have over 30 years experience in the horticulture industry and nutrient development so know a thing or two about what is best for the plant. They put little emphasis on flashy graphics and bespoke bottle design, instead letting the products speak for themselves.
As with any liquid of this nature, we urge you to use great care when handling acids or alkali solutions. They are corrosive and can easily cause burns if spilled on hands and can damage a range of surfaces and fabrics if direct contact is made. At Straight up Hydroponics, we always recommend using pipettes to measure dangerous liquids as it keeps it away from your hands as much as possible. Never mix pH down and up in concentration. They can react in an explosive way! It is best to use different measuring tools if you are using both in the same proximity. To see our range of other pH adjusting solutions, click here!
