June 2 Presentation
How Fertilizer, Water pH and Soil Can and Should Be Adjusted!
by Ernesto Sandoval
Perhaps you’ve heard that pH is important for plants? Ernesto will summarize why you want your plants to receive slightly acidic water and various ways you can adjust it for your succulents. How is this similar and different than fertilizing “regular” plants? Ernesto will discuss all of this plus the importance of “soils”/container media and the details of how you can maximize the root potential for your plants!
