Limestone is just that, lime :smile:  You'll find it at Lowes in the "SAND" isle, maybe outside in the garden center?

sphagnum peat moss is rotted swamp material.  Lowes has this near the perlite/vermiculte/desert sand in large bags.

What country are you in?

spanish is I think = limestone =la piedra caliza

peat = el musgo de turba

but im just using an online translator.

lime/limestone is used in building houses ext.

limestone is made from calcite and is used to adjust ph.
Chalk will work also.

hope that helps ;-) prob wont if your greek :tongue: like i said im guessing.

Do you think you managed to work out what you need?
If not feel free to ask anymore questions.
Was my spanish guess a good one?

LIMESTONE =
A sedimentary rock consisting chiefly (more than 50% by weight or by
areal percentages under the microscope) of calcium carbonate, primarily in
the form of the mineral calcite, and with or without magnesium carbonate;
specif. a carbonate sedimentary rock containing more than 95% calcite and
less than 5% dolomite. Common minor constituents include silica
(chalcedony), feldspar, clays, pyrite, and siderite. Limestones are formed
by either organic or inorganic processes, and may be detrital, chemical,
oolitic, earthy, crystalline, or recrystallized; many are highly
fossiliferous and clearly represent ancient shell banks or coral reefs.
Limestones include chalk, calcarenite, coquina, and travertine, and they
effervesce freely with any common acid. Abbrev. ls. AGI
b. A general term used commercially (in the manufacture of lime) for a
class of rocks containing at least 80% of the carbonates of calcium or
magnesium and which, when calcined, gives a product that slakes upon the
addition of water.

LIME =
Calcium oxide, CaO; specif. quicklime and hydraulic lime. The term is
used loosely for calcium hydroxide (as in hydrated lime) and incorrectly
for calcium carbonate (as in agricultural lime).

HYRDATED LIME =
A dry powder, Ca(OH)2 , obtained by hydrating quicklime.

PEAT =
There are two types of peat, low moor (Flachmoor) and high moor (Hochmoor)
peat. Low moor peat is the most common starting material in coal genesis.
It therefore constitutes a caustobiolith of low diagenetic degree. Peat is
formed in marshes and swamps from the dead, and partly decomposed remains
of the marsh vegetation. Stagnant ground water is necessary for peat
formation to protect the residual plant material from decay. Peat has a
yellowish brown to brownish black color, is generally of the fibrous
consistency, and can be either plastic or friable; in its natural state it
can be cut; further, it has a very high moisture content (above 75%,
generally above 90%). It can be distinguished from brown coal by the fact
that the greater part of its moisture content can be squeezed out by
pressure (e.g., in the hand). Peat also contains more plant material in a
reasonably good state of preservation than brown coal. Individual plant
elements, such as roots, stems, leaves, and seeds, can commonly be seen in
it with the unaided eye. Failing that, treatment of peat with dilute
alkali will make visible many of these plant tissues. Further, peat is
richer in cellulose than brown coal (reaction with Fehling's solution).
Unlike brown coal, peat still contains cellulose, protected by lignin or
cutin, which gives a reaction with chlorzinc iodide. Correspondingly, peat
shows under the microscope tissues that have not undergone either
lignification, suberinization, or cutinization; this is not the case in
brown coal. The reflectance of peat is low (about 0.3%). Microscopic
examination is best undertaken with transmitted light.
