Peat Moss pH..
    #4035746 - 04/10/05 12:25 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Don't know how many of you guys grow weed or ever heard of hydroponics. But those who have..then you probably know what pH Up and pH Down is.

Now, the way you adjust pH of rockwool (for hydroponics) before you stick the seeds in, is you let it sit in pH adjusted water for 24 hours.

So, I was thinking...why not instead of adding lime, just let it soak in 7.0 pH water for a day or so? Then let it dry out and there you go: pH adjusted peat moss!

the problem with the ph 7.0 water is that is readily drops in PH when exposed to air. CO2 is dissolved in the water and its not a very good buffer, since the ph changes easily.

The lime creats a buffer which resists the ph change.
so your ph of 7.0 would last longer with lime then if you just used distilled water.

remember the myc secrects an acidic liquid over time. Lime will keep the casing from going acidic longer.

PH Up is also called sodium carbonate. the substance is toxic and shouldnt be used in any shroom setup or anything that involves ingestion.

im not sure what PH down is made of, but again, it wasnt meant to be used in any applications that involve ingestion.

The main issue is, it wont last long.

After 1 flush the PH will be lower already, but ok after each flush a dunk in PH adjusted water then?

Thats rockwool cubes. You should also know how you change the pH in peat moss when its used as your basis in your pots...you add dolimite lime. Do the same for peat moss in shroomage, dolamite lime, limestone, powdered oyster shells, egg shells ect, pick one and add it.

You have a good point goofy.

Abermerlyin, pH Up & Down products are made of various substances (mostly depending on the brand). A lot of manufacturers use Potash to make pH Down.

Also pH up and down are safe. What happens when marjuana is harvested? It's smoked. I have never had any problems. These products can also be used on tomatoes or any other plants meant for human consumption.
