I didn't say you were ignoring N in your growing did I? I meant you're ignoring what he wrote about it! And as I mentioned, water companies tend to report what's in their water, including alkalinity, so ordering kits online probably isn't necessary.No shed, I am not ignoring N. If you look back at my journals over the past 20 months or so, you will see what type of N I give, and what type I rarely give.
I understand what he is saying very well, but am trying to give a 'closeabouts' explanation so people are not ordering alkalinity test kits off amazon and calcium carbonate or soda ash or lime to try to adjust dkh in a 3 gallon pot of soil.
What is necessary is to make sure the pH of your MEDIUM is in the correct range, not your nutes. If you have access to distilled water and a pH pen, you have everything you need to do that. If it is out of range, you absolutely should do something about it, and that doesn't mean raise or lower the pH of your nutes.
