pH adjusters + organics = ?
    #106799 - 08/09/08 06:28 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

So i have some pH up and down. I've just started getting back into all organics and I'm wondering: being as how the pH adjusters aren't organic, will it kill all of the life in my tea's that i worked so hard to build?

Some certified organic fert lines have pH adjusters (Earth juice comes to mind), I would imagine they wouldnt be to devistating so long as they are used sparingly. Lime is also good.

I doubt any brand of up or down would kill beneficial microbes.  (I think that's what you are asking..)  It wouldn't make sense for them to.

yes.... that is what i was asking....

but to any one in the future who asks.... i used the GH pH adjusters to get my pH balanced in my organic tea. i hear that frothing in a tea means that the microbes are at work, and frothing they were! my plants wuved em! it did raise my ppm, but only by like 30.


i went to go get the earth juice up/ down adjusters but didn't see anywhere on the label that idicates it being organic. so i emailed them today to get the scoop. peace out

Generally you're only going to want to drop PH, try using lemon juice.

Just so you know, you're wasting your time with all that organic waffle.  Your end product will be no different but your yeilds will most likely be down.

Using good quality nutes is very important IMO, I've done blind tests on people using identical clones one lot was flushed for 14 days, the other was given nutes up until the day of harvest.  None of the people I tested could reliably tell the difference time after time.

As with anything, you get what you pay for.
