I can agree that managing PH is a huge pain in the ass but very crucial. I’ve gone through 2 moderately priced PH meters in the past 6 months and they seem to “drift” and give me errors when calibrating. I’ve read up on PH meter tips and there’s like 100 rules for storing and maintaining your PH meter if you want it to be accurate which is very inconvenient in my opinion. I usually use a PH dropper solution when my water is clear and free of nutrients because I feel like I can trust that more.
Is there anyone else who has a frustrating time with PH meters and maybe discovered a solid one that won’t give me a headache every time I water/feed my plants? Lol thanks in advance!
