i could see how the inputs them self r high in acid after the fermentation but when u add them at a 1:1000 or 1:500 mix with water i dont think its gonna lower the PH that bad to bring it down from a base 7 to 4 is a lot of acid i feed my blueberrys a highly acidic water about a 4 but i use 2-3 cups (16-24oz) of unused coffee to 1 gal of water i would think u should test your base water PH and see where u r starting u may need to add something to your water to raise the PH back up to 7
- Thanks for the reply my water starts about ph 6.6 to 6.8 but after I add LAB and FPJ at 1-1000 ratio it drops drastically to the ph 4 range I was a hydrophonic guy trying Organics now and I’ve never seen such a drop in ph like this – also I’ve read that adding ph adjustment solutions (ph up/down) it potentially harms the microbes is this true?
- i have never checked the PH of my water mix b4 i will have to test it now to see ….. u can always add things like lime or wood ash to bring the PH back up that shouldn’t hurt the microbes at all
