pH up

Can DI-POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE be used instead of Hydrated Lime and would anyone know it's shelf life?

i don't anything about any of your post except that hydrated lime won't make pH go up.

edit: p.s. are you really a bike courier? major city? if so, mad props to you. you know about the bike courier races/events in copenhagen? (i learned about them in HT)

"Peat:
Main ingredient of many casing formulations, its pH is from 3-4 (acidic), has to be brought to neutral (pH 7) by adding limestone flour."

Yes bikecourier in Toronto (in the snow).
Know of lots of races, try search for "Alley Cat Race"

yes, i'm not sure if debian meant to say "hydrated lime won't make pH go up" when in fact hydrated lime *does* make pH go up.

If u add something with a high ph then the mixture is considered more acidic.
i mean ur not making the ph of the other stuff change ur just diluting evrything making (the mixture) more acidic or not, thats all.

no. higher pH is more basic, not more acidic. low pH is more acidic.

i wouldn't use it .
Potassium Phosphate-Dibasic is a horticultural salt .its only slightly alkaline . 5% in water is 7.5-8 Ph, so it would take a lot to nutrilize peat moss .
very soluble in water, keep well closed .
calcium carbonate is recommended .

okay, my bad, it will bring an acidic up. what i meant to say was that is a buffer. i made the mistaken assumption that you were working with an already neutral pH. dummy me :frown: .
