My PH is 5.5 and I need to know the best way to raise it up to an acceptable level. It is a soil medium. They weren't looking real good so I tried flushing them two days ago. No improvment. The soil is still pretty moist so I want to check with you guys before I added more water with anything in it.

Any help is very appreciated.

Thank you for your post greenthumb. Anything will help me at this point.

Ok, so when they say lime they mean limestone product? So adding lime juice won't help me? What about if I added baking soda to the water next time I water? (heard somewhere this will raise Ph)

Lime juice will make it more acidic but the baking soda may help. Try to get the "hydrated" lime it comes in a powdered form.
