    So I read somewhere the other day that you shouldnt use the the ph up and down chemicals when using soil, that it was meant exclusively for hydro. is this true? :dunce:

    What are the other options? Vinegar and the like, or are there soil-specific PHers?

    I use it in my distilled water before I add it. I haven't had any problems so far, and also how are you supposed to PH your water if you don't use that stuff?

    thats what i do as well. I just read in a forum the other day it was bad for some reason. other than that, what, dolomite lime in the soil to raise and vinegar to lower i guess. maybe the person was just talking about putting the chemicals directly into the soil.

    Yeah maybe they were talking about adjusting the PH of the soil???? I don't know I use PH up on my water and I don't have that many problems.

    Its only bad if your doing organics . PH up/down kills miro life needed in an organic grow.Otherwise its absolutly fine .
