    Soil temperature

    What is the ideal range for soil temp when growing indoors?

    I suggest you go to the main GWE site and start by reading the tutorials there. All the info you will ever need or want is there but you gotta do your homework!

    My filtered tap water runs over 7.5 pH but the soil microbes
    make pH correction unnecessary

      That was my first stop. Nada

    As long as the environment temperature is good the soil temp will be good.
