I have some ph up and ph down left for previous hydroponic setups i had going. I also have test strips. Would it be worth while lowering the ph of the water before i water my utrics and dews??
Well for starters, what type of water are you using? If you're using reverse osmosis water, then the chances are that it's already somewhat acidic. In any case, I'm not sure if it'd really be of much (if any) benefit to the plants to give them acidic water. Though, you can always make an experiment, then we'll know for sure!
I'm sure that the use of peat and / or LFS will be sufficient in providing an appropriately acidic environment, without the use of chemical additives.
Probably not. I would imagine the peat/LFS has the optimal pH.Originally Posted by [b
