I recently found that I can get dolomite lime here.
as I read about it, dolomite lime will stabilize pH at 7 and that there doesn't seem to be a way to put too much into soil. I'm growing in containers, so I suspect this latter pronouncement is not entirely correct. your comment?
what bothers me about this is multiple growers go on to suggest lowering the soil pH during the flowering stage. how can you do that if the dolomite returns the pH to 7 and cannot be flushed from the soil?
I'm entirely jealous of those who are attempting to raise their pH as I can't seem to get mine below 7, ever. (I can get magnesium sulfate-Epsom salts- but not aluminium sulfate.) so far, trying it on veggies I'm also growing, I haven't seen particularly favorable results from Epsom salts. neither have I had good results from straight sulfur, but in recent readings I find I may have been mixing it in too strongly.
if you read my previous post, I'm trying new soil (and awaiting your critique) of mushroom substrate, trichoderma fungus and chitosan, if this helps you respond.
dolomite lime or no?
