50/50 mix ph
    #604093 - 04/10/02 07:35 AM (21 years, 10 months ago)

what ph should the 50/50 mix have?
I've got some peat moss with some added limestone.
it says that the ph is between 5,5-6,5 should I add some more limestone?

I don't have my notes handy, but I think you want a higher PH (0=very acidic, 7=neutral, 14=very caustic), somewhere between 7 and 8. Peat is fairly acidic, so you will need to add a buffer, such as limestone (which you did). The lifetime and reaction rate will depend upon the size of your limestone particles. If I remember correctly, my friend uses (again, notes not with me) 1 to 1.5 parts limestone for every 4 parts of peat. Limestone will not go over a ph of 8, but hydrated lime will. If you are using hydrated lime instead of limestone, be sure you check your ph before using.

Just another spore in the wind.
