Soil ph in organic super soil

Hello. The ph in my soil is around 5.8- 5.9. I went to a grow store chain to look for a product to raise it. The guy said don’t worry about it. I ended up getting Rainbow mix pro grow for my brown spots, pale leaves. Are these people usually accurate? I have been PHing my water to 6.3-7. Should I stop all together?

I use super soil and ph about 7ish.

@oldmarine do you ph your water?

Most good soils will buffer your runoff to the 5.8 range. As long as your input water ph is in range you’ll be good.


Yes, that’s what I meant.

I have been using ph down in my water. Should I stop?

@detroitpwp3 im in supersoil i have well water at ph-7.3 --… i ph down to 6.0 first 4 weeks then at 6.2 then did test with a little run off/—/by the way you don’t any run-off with supersoil–/; at ph-6.7 in and had 6.4 out so i now will keep it ph at 6.5 to 6.8 threw the flower stage i’ll tag you you can read mine. happy growing

@alienofasoul yeah I learned the hard way about halfway thru my first grow that I wasn’t supposed to be getting runoff with supersoil. My issues started with brown spots on my ladies. I also got bent tips, and light green leaves. So I thought the soil ph was causing deficiencies. Hopefully the pro grow hopes
