    Just touching your base to let you know I've track tested a couple items in the list. I have always liked using ashes from a hardwood fire for nute especially when it starts flowering. This is one of nature's greatest source of soluble potash (potassium). This week I used ashes from the Barbecue grill and sprinkled liberally around the bottom of the plant. The other item I have always wondered about was using vinegar as acid for Ph down. Used a Tbs/gal as directed and it really greens them up. It worked really nice on my Tomato plant as well.

    if the soil is alkaline it doesn't wan't you to use ash because it raises pH but not too much; if you had acidic soil you could get away with this because it may say bring your ph from 5.5 - 6.5 . It said not to use it on alkaline soil because if it was 7.0 it may raise it to 8.0, locking out nutes
    I'm pretty sure ash is a small amount of largely available Nitrogen .

    So in a way you could use ash instead of lime if you have really acidic soil that needs sweetening.

    Yes, that may be true if your soil is very alkaline. Mine is about regular. I do back it up with a vinegar treatment during the following watering. It really helps when the bloom is trying to get size. The ash is not as strong as Lime for instance but has valuable potassium. Use it before a rain for best results especially if you live in area that receives acid rain.

    Sorry not to reply sooner but have been busy.
