    Default pH Question: Vinegar and Baking Soda?

    I don't have access to a grow shop here, so the only thing I can think of that I could use for pH up/down is vinegar and baking soda.

    Has anyone ever tried using same in a soil grow?

    Is it a crazy idea, or would it work?

    My only other alternative is not to pH my water, at least for this first grow cycle in the new cab.

    Vinegar would be pH up, baking soda pH down, correct?

    The other way 'round: down is acid and up is alkaline.

    You can go organic and skip both altogether.

    Also consider an online order.

    Online orders are really tough for me -- no credit cards.

    That being the case, I'll just skip it.

    I was kind of concerned about whether vinegar would affect the flavour of meds anyhow. Our water here isn't *that* bad, though it does have a fair bit of iron and lime in it. As long as I leave it sitting in a bucket for a couple days to vape off the chlorine, I figure I should be ok.

    Lord knows watering my tomatoes outside with unvaped tap water didn't seem to do them any harm! Suckers were nearly four feet high before they got weighed down with fruit.

    There is a General Hydroponic Organic gro box with all the nutes you will need for a couple crops with a ph tester for $63 with delivery from Canadian Hydro Wholesaler out of the winnepeg area. Also another box with the flora line $10 less. Give em a look good prices and everything you need. I got some 3gal grow bags for 0.50 each.
