Need Help,Too much Dolomite in SWC
I'm worried that I have used to much Dolomite in my SWC.
I am using the SWC from Gardener's Supply. It has approx a 4 gallon resavoir and holds about 1.9 cu ft of mix. I am using Lamberts potting mix from Home Depot which has Dolomite and limestone listed in the ingredients. I used raybo's instructions from his earthtainer III but halfed the recipie from 2 cups dolomite to 1 cup. Last year I followed it to the T and got blossom drop, BER, and other issues that a local gardener attributed to too high a PH caused by too much lime. SO this year I used 1 cup dolomite and 1/2 cup fert strips.
I am worried that I still over dosed on dolomite at 1 cup in 1.9 cu ft / 50 dry quarts of mix. Does that sound too high given that the bag says it already has dolomite in it to adjust for calcium and ph? Will too much dolomite raise Ph so high that I will have blossom drop and BER? If so, what can I do to fix? Will a soil acidifier help balance it out? I have not planted the plants yet but do not want to scrap all the dirt I just mixed.
Any advise would be greatly appriciated.
