I noticed my plants went taking up water like the should & decided to put up some sticky traps  as I thought gnats.

Take note I do know the dangers of d.e. Just adding so no  there’s no need for warnings about breathing it in. 

that outa the way I covered the top soil in it but dunno if it’s coz I’ve covid or just didn’t think about it changing the ph.

I watered them yesterday something was up they didn’t look right however were due to be fed so I fed them well & crashed from this covid thing.

so I looked at the plants today & thought that’s no deficiency & tested the soils ph it’s sitting around 7-8

so I’ve brought some ph down.
fastest I could get Is in the photo. 

so wadda you think I should do ph the water to 6.2 using a better meter than the soil one you see in the pic it’s not that far out.

add that water to the soil & see where it comes out @ or ?

@mix you should definitely invest in a ph pen man it will help keep you dialed in a bit more accurately than those stick in the soil type meters

@schroomy 

I fear I’ll have to suss this out myself they don’t need watering & they just got fed not really the time I want to flush them esp still being Ill.

That aside

like I posted I’ve a proper ph pen

however tbh I don’t know of a pen you can stick in the soil.

things move on & such can you buy a probe that reads the soil ph itself That’s acceptable

I do have a ph/ec pen for water.

With the soil I use & with what I normally add my ph is always 6.5 but for soil yeah one of them pens would be better.

It would be so easy if it had lowered the ph  I could of just watered in a ( tiny ) bit of burnt paper till it got back to normal Shame I don’t know any ph down tricks that do the same but vise versa bar dunno about adding lemon concentrate probably work just waffling now I guess

@mix I would flush the soil with water Ph'd to 6.3 to get the medium reset to 6.3-6.5 and if they are due a feed pour it in last.  I have used lemon juice to Ph  my water also works fine.
