Product information

Lemon Kick is an organic pH regulator that allows you to reduce the pH value of the nutrient water to the ideal level of 5.5 - 6.5. Only a nutrient solution with the correct pH value will ensure that the plant absorbs the nutrients in the correct proportions. This then has a stimulating effect on the plant’s metabolism, which makes the plant grow faster.

Dosage and use

Shake well before use. Add Lemon Kick in steps of 0.5 ml per litre of water (1:2000) and measure the pH value as you go along.


Water, citric acid.


500 ml & 1 L bottle and 5 L can.

Some sizes may not be available in all countries.

Yes, with Lemon Kick you decrease the pH value of the nutrient water without affecting the soil life.
