First meter I bought was a temp/humi meter for like 15 bucks. I still have not bought a PH tester but my plants seem to be doing very healthy at almost three weeks.

If your solutions ph is off at all, you will begin to see the ramifications of this very soon.

The first meter you should get for hydro is a PH meter. However, I recommend you just get a litmus tester. They're really cheap and accurate as well.

EC meter should be your next thing to buy.

This is the best PPM/EC meter out hands down  http://www.getbluelab.com/shop/Bluelab+Commercial+Truncheon%AE+Meter.html


The drops are fine for ph. I myself use those to this day. (not that it means shit but I've been growing under the lights since 1985 and have tried most ph meters out.) :wink:
