Need Help With Ph Problem


Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get the ph levels of my soil down into range. They're currently at 6.5 to 6.7. after 4 waterings with 4.5 ph water.

 

Trying to get them between 6.0 and 6.5.

 

I'm using FFOF for soil and distilled water with 1/2 recommend dose of cal mag ph'd to 4.5.

 

I Know FFOF uses the oyster shells for buffering the soil ph. So can these resist the water I'm using that good? Or will it come down with more waterings?

 

Or should I try something else like sulfer?

It's not nute burn. I really don't use any nutes other than Jobes organics, and only if the plants need it.

 

T-pain are you saying flushing might help get the ph down? Or are you asking if I have flushed? Cause I've tired that in the past.

 

I just know that when I get the ph down between 6-6.5 I do good, when it's higher, it's hit and miss with some plants doing good while others display ph issues.

 The best plants I ever grew were in Fox Farm Ocean Forest. They were a cut above the ones I grew in K.I.S.S. soil. I found the FFOF soil to be pretty good at keeping a constant pH between 6-7. I started adding dry organics to the FFOF after one month like they advise on the package. The stuff worked out really well for me.

 

I saw a chart of pH vs. usable nutrients that a plant can uptake. The best pH, according to the chart, was 6.8. I try to shoot for that.
