Adjusting the mediums PH
    #113725 - 08/24/08 04:46 AM (8 years, 10 months ago)

I use ph adjusted water when i water my plants and my ph of the soil stays alot lower than the water I use (I test the runoff). How do you adjust the soils ph to be where you want it?

In my case its a soilless mix, with peat moss (which has a low ph).

For example my ph will be around 4-5 in the runoff, while im feeding it 6.0 or 7.0 water to try to raise it.

The best thing to do is, before you use the mix, soak it in the pH you are aiming at for a good while, and then consistently flush it with that same pH. I would still expect the pH to drift after waterings in the direction it was before, but this can actually work to your advantage, making different nutrients more available along the way.

By the way, where's your grow-log? :mad:
