Does anyone use 1 cup vinegar to 1 gallon of water to balance the PH of soil?
I wouldn’t use a cup. Maybe a teaspoon but I have used apple cider unfiltered before just not long periods of time
The amount of vinegar you use per gallon will depend on the current ph of the water before adding the vinegar. But a cup sounds like too much. Maybe a couple tbsp?
A cup of vinegar will probably throw the ph to the high levels. Way too high . When nutes r mixed u can add by drops strait vinegar to up the ph. I would do a drop or so at a time to see how much a drop ups the ph. Sometimes less is more
An slow is good
I read a 1 cup in a gallon on a gardening web site. Thanks for the help all.
They must have been mixing up some major amounts of nutes. Unless it was super watered down. Either way just strait will work drop at a time to see what the drop does of it dont change give 2 or 3 drops and see but once u get so much in the numbers will start to change fast
Would of thought measuring the PH of the water would be first step.
Perhaps for something like blueberries outside that would work.
Blueberries need acidic soil to thrive.
Like everyone is saying you need to check the pH of your water first then adjust as needed.
