    Citric acid (lemon juice) for PH down, Silica (silicone) for PH up as natural as you can get

    I wish people would stop saying this. Not all soil is the same. Not all water is the same. Not all nutes are the same. With my soil setup I must adjust ph or it is a guarantee fail. The pictures above remind me of my past ph issues.

    I was told today in the shop that if you use a soil with a high lime content then it actually does buffer the natural or organic nutes. He also named a nute line that is chemical but requires no ph adjustment in any soil. Really comes down to what you use. I prefer all natural and have great results with my organic soil. So I will definitely need to continue adjusting PH.

    Sorry I missed this... you add ph up or down as needed depending on your mix at the time to get it to 6.5-6.8 anywhere in that range and you are safe. How the plants doing? Any improvement?

    Just asking.
    How does ph 6 kill the microherd? I was thought that when your water is too neutral the plant has problems absorbing the nutrients.
    If you start out at a ph of 7 you might want to stick to that. Although I believe that results would”ve been better of you started out at ph 6.
    My tapwater comes close to ph 8. If I would not adjust it I would have problems coming my way I believe.
