    RO is fine.....

    Your PH is not going to be a problem unless you are watering with very hard water, and then the PH is the least of your worries. You guys worry over the littlest things.

    BigCarnivourKid – thanks for the link. I didn’t know there was a “natural” way to keep the pH down.

    JustLikeAPill – for me pH is an easy thing to check and adjust since I already own a pH meter that I use for other interests, so if there’s a benefit to look at it and adjust it then why not? I guess if it doesn’t make any difference at all then why waste my time?

    Because peat is an acidic substance. You can test if you want and do little experiments if you wish, but I don't think it'll matter unless you are using buffered water somehow.

    By all means test it out and report your findings! I'd be interested in hearing it.

    JustLikeAPill – since I already have the meter I’m sure I will perform some measurements and adjustments. Unfortunately, since all of my plants share the same water tray it will be impossible to tell if watering different plants with a different pH makes a difference.

    If I’m feeling ambitious I may try to divide the tray so I can experiment. I still have some time before its growing season again!
