HELP MY SOIL PH IS 5.3!!! Turns out ocean forest is 6.8 I transplanted!
    #298855 - 10/17/09 01:27 AM (7 years, 1 month ago)

Ok I have always watered with 6.5-6.7 water.

I always notice tho that my waters ph when stored goes up as it sits and I have to re ph it a lot.

But my soils ph when I run my watering here with 1000 ppm feeding of grow big ff nutes.

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

I am about to run some 7.5 Water through it and re ph it up higher and see were the soil is at at that point. then get the ph of the soil 6.6.


WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

ok now im trying 12.55 water cause the ph didnt even budge from 7.2 from the last time I did 11.

I wish I could get answers faster cause this problem needs to be fixed immediately.

If your soil is heavy on peat it will steadily become more and more acidic...answer mhbound's question.

hey. chill.
turn off the caps lock.
you're not accomplishing anything.
Have you considered that you have a broken pH meter and that you are now killing your plants with pH up?

I hate that pH up and down shit...Try using hydrated lime or something...

I use hydrated lime at a teaspoon a gallon. I water with plain water, then flush with the hydrated lime water a few times then finish with a final watering of slightly fertilized solution, about half strength of normal.

Some say baking soda work but I've never used it

I got a good ph meter self calibrating pen for 161 dollars at the hydro shop.

does a grower sponsor sell hydrated lime? Which one?

man this is my worst nightmare with how much I have invested into this.

I might just take a clone and build a bubble bucket and get some General hydro and veg that into a new mother.

I mean I just built an aero cloner anyway.

A soiless mix is all I use...Adjusting pH for someone who has never used soil can be a fucking nightmare and once its gone too far its a bitch to get back...You aren't too bad off right now you can still adjust it and I'm trying to come up with the best thing but I'm fucked up as hell and I've never used the soil you mention so I'm trying to read about it.

A quick search on the internet and you can find cheap hydrated lime I wouldn't buy it from a hydro place they will probably mark up the prices trying to make an extra dollar

Wait, I don't understand why you're still boosting it if its at 7.
Is that because it'll drift back down again?

I'm so out of my depth when looking at inorganic grows.
