What is an affordable way to measure PH accurately? Is there any way to do this without a digital meter?

Hi I use general hydroponics test kit ph up and ph down not to pricey like 18bucks and it will show you where you sit ph wise ,it is fairly accurate and will last for many grows to come ...I'm always using more ph up then the ph down and it helps tremendously gotta hit that sweet spot or else your gonna get bite problems.. cheers

Hi. well ive bought kinda cheap ph meter for my grows, and used it for aaaam i would say 3 times. i was so worried of that ( i used it wrong) that i nearly killed one plant ( my first indoor grow) after that i never usd a ph meter, Because i used a very balanced soilmix, and used to fetilise very less. Soil buffers very well ph fluctuations. So i never take care of Ph in my Grows ( Pls dont tell it anybody)

You can get the whole general hydroponics control kit for about $16 on amazon. The colors are clear and easy to read. That is what I use. Whatever you do stay away from test strips. They are hard to read. Hope this helps!

You can grab ph test strips u can find them cheap in most pool sections... it won't give u down to the decimal point but good enough to know if your in the right range!
