    distilled white vinegar Espoma Soil Acidifier or lemon juice for pH down?

    Is it harmful to use white distilled vinegar, or Espoma soil acidifier, or lemon juice to bring pH down?
    I have some N.Lights autos that got a slow start. I’m thinking due to soil pH@ 7.2

    Soil:equal parts peat moss, garden soil (with aged chicken, cow and horse manure with wood stove ash all for many years (garden is awesome), perlite,vermiculite.
    Pots: 4,5,3gal.
    Nutes: 1/2strength 20:20:20 after week2 only 2x then Dyna grow 2x. Week4 used 1/2strength 15/30/15 once then Dyna Grow Blume.2x.
    Grow light: cheep 60w led and 100w led panels.
    They are at week 6.5, little but flowering.
    Im hoping they go a full 10+ weeks to fill out.
    My second grow. The fist was MANY years ago.
    Looking forward to next time already. Then I’ll get the soil mix right, for a better start for autos.
    Seems that your screwed if you make more than 1 mistake in the first week or 2 with autos. That’s OK I’ll get more than I can use and provide some to the 3 MS patients in my fam.

    I prefer to use pure (O.K., it's Walmart from concentrate "Natural Strength") lemon juice, as my late flowering PH down. It is more forgiving than the chemical PH down we use.

    Organic lemon and use the juice.
    been doing that for 8 years now. No problems at all.
    Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.

    I use lemon juice for ph down.
    Autos can be jerks. The less mistakes the better. They don't like change. Personally I don't feed them for the first month or so.

    Typically I don't feed till the second week of flower.
