Joan! I am in love with my cactus. Anything in the way of their improvement attracts me heavily. After your advice I spent at least 2 hrs in search of methods and ended up buying PH testing kit used in school labs. They use Litmus papers for testing soil samples. Thanks a lot anyway.
How to Test Soil With Litmus Strips
I found litmus test strips in the grocery store yesterday. Have never noticed them before.
I thought this was a rooftop garden but it turns out to be hillside garden; lots going on in this little space.
Sentient, really good news about your thinking of keeping bees; your small patch of Earth will be a virtual garden of life. Do keep us informed.
Dallas, thank you so much for this Ode to a Worm. I'm going to have to find a way to put this in a form that is permanent and in my garden. I have a potter friend who may know how to preserve the words.
Thanks Joan, I wasn't aware that there could be some household methods for PH testing. Now I will find a way. Thanks again for showing the direction.
amer, thank you for your comment about the wagon wheel herb garden that I found in one of my emagazines. We have been looking for geometric designs and this one seems rather nice. As to testing pH of soil without a meter, here are simple strategies using household items: How To Test Soil Acidity/Alkalinity without a Test Kit
Changing the pH of Your Soil
Denoo! Your Wagon wheel Garden is beautiful.
How you people control the PH. If I want to maintain PH between 5 and 5.5 what to do in the absence of PH meter. Currently I use three different types. Vinegar, Sulphuric acid and humic acid. But I am not sure of required quantity and if there is difference in the use of acid in winter and summer months?
Dalas! Catus seeds are more difficult to raise than human seeds(I have experince with both). Here even people in the business of cactus plants don't try seeds. Instead they use another intresting technique. When a grafted plant reaches reasonable size, some part of it is left on the stock at time of cutting. In this way they not only get a rooted plant but remaining part on the stock starts producing offshoots(it produces 10 to 20 plants).
