How much peat to add?

Recommended Posts

I would say half a cup of peat in some sort of sachet, like super fine wedding vial netting sew up with fishing line or panty hose. Whatever the container is it  must be permeable. You should hit 6.5 to 6.2 no problem using r/o water, mind you it may leach tannin, so pre soak to leach so you don't end up with black water.



I do believe you could get the same ph lowering with using some drift wood, alder cone and IAL.  I use all 3 and there no leach of tannin's crystal clear water if you pre soak to leach the tannin's.
