white vinegar can be used to lower ph, that is correct

I did a slurry test. One part soil from the plant and two parts distilled water. Mixed. Let sit and then mixed again. Tested the slurry with ph tester and ppm tester. I previously thought it was a nitrogen deficiency and added more nutrients with no result. Found out it might be nutrient block due to high ph and then performed the slurry test

Also should i be using regular water for watering and only using water with nutrients periodically?

i can only comment on the ph issue,, not the plant diagnosis

i know of near no one on here that concerns themselves with the ph coming out of the plant,,

near everyone is concerned about the ph of the water going in

in soil , top of my head says 6 - 6.5

my opinion, a major flush, dry it out and ph the water and feed going in

i use tap water that has sat for at least 24 hrs to help dissipate any chlorine

and i use mega crop nutes and fert every watering

i read you have some proper ph testing probe? important if ph is a concern

i would only say this,, one can use fert every watering,, 'if done correctly'

ph needs to be correct or the ferts will not be used and will sit and cause all kinds of problems

does this sound like your current situation? has been mine, very recently

Ok cool. Ya quite possibly. Im guessing you corrected it by correcting the ph in your water?

So im assuming that by correcting the ph in the water i feed the plants it will correct the ph in the soil? Am i correct with that?
