Comment to 'still dont know what this is and its kinda gettin worse slowly'
  • Just wanted to clarify the PH range I would shoot for. I based this on the fact that "soil" by definition means field soil. Nobody uses that anymore. My #'s are base on mainly peat manufactured soils, that are acidic. BTW...It's been hotter that fuck in Missouri all week !!! Watering OD plants everyday...JEEEZ !! 

    Growing Media

    The production of greenhouse crops involves a number of cultural inputs. Among these, perhaps the most important is the type of growing medium used. Due to the relatively shallow depth and limited volume of a container, growing media must be amended to provide the appropriate physical and chemical properties necessary for plant growth.

    Field soils are generally unsatisfactory for the production of plants in containers. This is primarily because soils do not provide the aeration, drainage and water holding capacity required. To improve this situation several “soilless” growing media have been developed. The following is a description of some of the most commonly used amendments for the production of greenhouse crops.
