Please HELP PH Problem
    #638278 - 09/25/12 11:25 AM (4 years, 1 month ago)


Yesterday I spent 2 hours trying to fix my PH and could not reach what EVERYONE say.

The following tests were made :

Made my water PH 7.0
After giving the plant water, I collected the first drops from the runway and tested them, It showed PH 4.5.
I added PH up, made my water PH at 9.0 so that the runway becomes 6.5
But after watering and collecting the drops from the bottom, I tested again and it showed 4.8, how could that be ?

I made that test again on a different plant which needed to be watered and same results.

So how could I fix this ?

Because just watering a small amount isn't going to change the pH of your soil.  You would need to flush it.  But not with water that has a pH of 9, that would be very damaging.  You would want to flush with water with a pH of no more than 7.

Dude she isn't as young as she use to be.
