Measuring water

Measure water according to, your online horticultural advisor.

Growshops .fr offers you a wide range of instruments and equipment to measure and control water.
Major condition to any living element, water is also fundamental for any indoor culture, in addition to the horticultural lampand the climate management and the fertilizer Earth Hydro Coco

The success of an indoor cultivation depends on the knowledge of these four parameters, whatever the substrate (s) used. Within the framework of a culture in interior, it proves imperative to measure water, not to bring it in anarchic way.
Measure the water then appears as an evidence. That's why distributes equipment for propagation and water measurement, to help you succeed in your horticultural experience.

What are the instruments for measuring water that can be found on your website?

In the numerous categories of the online catalog of, you will be able to find in the climatic management, tools of measures concerning the rate ofhygrometry (expressed in percentages) or quite simply, of the concentration of water present, in the air of the space of culture. For this, you can discover the thermo-hygrometers, some with probe and / or memory, on
This information should be monitored and interpreted to react and thus provide the best environmental conditions for plants grown, to calibrate the humidity level according to the climatic specificities of certain plants.

In the same way, it will be interesting, whatever the adopted medium of culture, to have a regular reading of other parameters, to be also taken into account: the Hydrogen potential (pH) and theelectro-conductivity (EC).
In the framework of watering or irrigation, it seems that the use of a pH meter and a EC meterthese are recalibrated monthly with the help of specific calibration solutions, the buffers. Then, the testers lead to the success of a crop or the maintenance of a green wall, for example.

Calibration solutions

These two measuring instruments guarantee an increased productivity of the plants. The gardener thus well equipped is able to follow the nutrition brought to the plants and to make it evolve accordingly(EC), while ensuring a better assimilation of the nutritive elements through the pH meter.

Still in the context of measuring the water administered to plants, what are the various propagation equipment that may be needed, and available on

Before thinking about the distribution of water and nutrients, it is more than recommended, and even beneficial, to purify tap water, the most commonly used, in the context of an indoor culture.
Indeed, in order to extract from this water, effectively all pollutants and other harmful molecules such as chlorine, the acquisition of a purifier or a reverse osmosis water is very beneficial to the productivity and quality of a crop, but also to the longevity of the equipment in contact with this purified water. Discover recognized brands like GrowMax Water or AquarioPure.

By the air or by the ground, there is on, a set of materials, in order to propagate efficiently the water.

By air, water can be diffused and maintained by devices such as foggers, humidifiers, in order to control the hygrometry of a growing space, toincrease and stabilize concretely the ambient humidity.
Likewise, only if these are equipped with climate managers (such as the models of GSE, Davin superPro, Ecotechnics winflex, ...) and therefore equipped with hygrostats, the extractors and air introducers ensure an automated control in real time, a close monitoring of the humidity rate thus promulgated to indoor plants.

On the ground, the water and fertilizer that indoor cultivation necessarily generates, must be controlled, periodic and distributed evenly to all plants.
By means of a simple watering can or a sprayer.
However, in the case of hydroponic or aeroponic cultivation, fertigation (water and nutrient supply) must be carried out through irrigation circuits, more or less complex, driven by water (or air) pumps, as represented by the so-called active systems, from Platinium Hydroponics platinium Aeroponics, Alien, GHE, ...
In the present context, the use of mechanical or electronic programmers, responding to predefined cycles, is a mustcisin the present context, the use of mechanical or electronic programmers, responding to predefined cycles, is to be considered, depending on the water retention capacity of the selected substrate.

On soil or on an inert medium such as coconut fibre or rockwool, water and nutrient irrigation can also be based on gravity and capillarity principles, such as the so-called passive systems like the models proposed by Autopot or Blumat., your online horticultural advisor.
