How often should I use Gorton's?
Gorton's can be used as little as once a week to as often as you add water to your plants.
How much do I use?
We suggest using almost .5 (half) of a teaspoon per gallon of tap water. If you are using Gorton's on a lawn or something acidic like tomatoes then you can use a little more than .5 (half) of a teaspoon per gallon of water.
Do I need to mix Gorton's Solution into the water?
Once you add Gorton's to water, or water and nutrient mix, stir well. Let sit for at least 1 minute to let Gorton's settle before measuring the new pH.
What is the optimal pH of my plant?
See https://www.almanac.com/content/soil-ph-levels for optimal pH levels.
What if my pH is already too low?
If you are using distilled, purified, or any other water that already has a very low pH (below 6) then you will need to purchase a "pH up" which is very inexpensive and easy to find. Add in the suggested amount of "pH up" and then proceed to follow the directions for Gorton's.
What is pH?
pH is the acidity or alkaline level. You measure this by either using litmus paper, which isn't extremely accurate or by using a digital pH meter which you can purchase for as low as $12.99 on Amazon or you may also find both of these at your local gardening, pool, or hardware store.
