    Hey Organic peeps....I just bought some dolomite lime and want to start adding it to my soil to help against ph imbalances. Not sure how much I am supposed to add to a given volume of soil or if it is to be mixed or top dressed? Thanks for any help.

    I mix in 2 tablespoons per gallon of soil more or less. just throw it in when you are mixing up your soil. I don't think you can over do it because it is just a buffer. You can look at the different receipes in here http://www.marijuanapassion.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54251 and see evetyone is just a little different.
