did you have any water mixed with the moss??? if so the water will make the ph go up because water is at 7.0 . either way just follow the tek, and mix it up....why are you worrying about ph??? this isn't pot! LOL
but seriously people have been knowen to add a little agricultural lime to adjust the ph to their advantage. this is why one tek says to use jiffy mix as it already has the stuff mixed in....i believe its the SOS tek.
