You are correct.. Thanks.. 100 is much better than 10,000!!!! LOL
Thanks for the information you have provided. I'm going to try the phosphoric acid as soon as I can find a few gallons of it. Isnt there some product called "Rust Mort" or something that is used to turn rusted car part into a black oxide or something that contains a high concentration of phosphoric acid?
As for the soil.... I have NO idea what so ever on what side of the pH scale is better. My "uneducated" guess would be to say that acidic is better. I only say this because in my limited experience with chemicals (15 years industrial processing), I am a lot less afraid of acidic stuff than I am of caustic stuff.. Acid is way over-rated as dangerous while caustic materials can cause massive damage with little or no warning. Given the choice, I'd rather spill acid on myself than caustic soda.. Of course, like I said, I have no idea.. Its just a guess out of the blue.
It seems to me from my very limited knowledge, Acid dissolves metals and minerals in the soil while caustic tends to destroy biological things. I would think a plant would be able to deal with a dissolved metal much better than a caustic attacking its root.. Also, as I understand it, septic systems dont like soap (which is on the caustic side).. Being that a septic system is basically a miniature eco-system in itself and that they dont like caustic stuff, I'd have to say acid would be better for a plant.
Do you know the answer? Am I right or wrong?
