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.
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.
