While mixing some casing mix using the 50/50+ tek, i noticed that the peat moss i purchased says, "This product has been PH adjusted with limestone to reduce it's natural acidity. The PH range for this product ranges from 5.0 - 6.0" Whats the range of non adjusted peat moss?

When i make the casing mix should i add less crushed oyster shells and less hydrated lime? If so.. how much less?

You can never trust the bag...always make sure your carful with hydrated lime, because you can add to much of that, but just add about 5% crushed oyster shells...its hard to add to much of them, so keep that the same, thats for long term anyway. Normal peat moss ranges from like 3-6 and remember that between 5.0 and 6.0 thats a 10 fold difference in acidity..so even with your bag your not sure exactly what it is, if it is what it says on the bag.

You can get a pH meter or strips if your really concerned..or you can just add the oyster shell...maybe a little hydrated lime but I'd be carful not to add to much, the oyster shell will do you alot of good as it is, the hydrated lime may hurt you...unless someone else experienced with altering peat moss pH without a meter can give you some advise on it..
