    Fresh squeezed lemon juice- easy and organic. Don't use the bottled stuff, it has other preservative chemicals in it and is also weaker than fresh juice.

    it seems that lemon juice causes a yellow foam to appear on the top of my water
    is that normal or going to ruin my roots

    Takes a bit of time to disolve and read right on a ph meter and I wouldn't use to much as it really increases the PPM and will cause salt induced nute lockout in some cases

    Thanks... learned something today... the bottled lemon juice has been working for me... but I'll try vinegar next time... I think that bottled lemon juice attracted drain flies to my babies :(

    Im using phosphoric acid apprently its inorganic so plants can absorb it
    which I think is a bad thing but I brought it from a hydro store and its for hydro so im not sure

    Pick up some PH down... its 10 bucks and worry free. You don't want to guess when it comes to PH. And you don't want it jumping up and down.
