I am only 1 week from seeds going in jiffy and have question about what’s best to use in organic soil grow?? Just wanna know what’s the best option for bringing ph down since my tap water is at 8.1ph and even distilled is 7.1!
Didn’t feed them the water but as a test I put 3 drops of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 bottle of water and dropped ph all the way to 4.2! In living organic soil whats my best bet??
Also should I still plan to use my Nectar for the gods nutes or save em and just get a soil recharge/ organic tea to feed em?? Also when should I plan to start feeding that to em??
@420Forever or @Arthur if you are around I would appreciate your feedback!
Thanks

If your running nectar, just get some hades down, and you might email scott (the owner) your base pH is pretty high, believe there might be a trick or two, not popping up in my memory, as I run RO so is a moot issue for me.

The line will bring your pH down as you add each and mix. Last is the pH up or down. Ro is a flat 7, but hard to measure, as is distilled as there's nothing in it to get a reading.

With ro, by the time I'm done, my pH is around 5.5 and I have to add the oly up to get in range.

Thanks I emailed oregonsonly to ask but figured here would be smart too. The nectar line I am assuming is gonna drop it cuz the sample only came with Olympus up but wondering between feedings??
And I know my water here sucks even though it’s a big city (Ft Worth,Tx) but has high amounts of stuff I sure don’t wanna drink so only drink bottled.
Since my soils 7.3 out the bag I am guessing plain water feedings shouldn’t give em 7.0 water right?

Ya it’s same principal as the vinegar but was surprised how far just a small amount of it will go. Already had some in the pantry so did a tester with that! Seems like will need to use it in a gallon of water and not a 20oz cuz 3 small drops almost chopped it in 1/2!
