THINGS FROM THE EPISODE
Make your own DIY PON!
pH balancing your nutrient solution is crucial for nutrient availability to your Hoya! We talked about aiming for 5.5 pH after your nutrients have been added. Overtime, the solution in the substrate becomes alkaline, resulting in your plants obtaining all of the nutrients needed.
