Massive Error - Over Limed
Eyeroll. I prepared a small batch of 5-1-1 for the herbs I had started from seed and maybe for the peppers and a bunch of other things. Overall I have close to 6 gallons. About a week ago I had put together a batch of 1-1-1 as well - that batch was about 25 gallons.
Today when I double checked the forums to see how much lime to add to my 5-1-1 I saw that Al said 1/2-3/4c per 12 gallons or so. I did some math and decided that about 1.5c of lime would be good for my 5-1-1 mix.
Obviously I was thinking I had 25 gallons of that when I had only 6. I did not notice until it was too late.
Long story short: I already potted about 25 plants in a mix that has, maybe 4 times as much lime in it as it should. Can this be rectified somehow without having to repot? Do I need to repot these plants immediately and toss the soil? Can I amend it in some way so as not to waste it?
Ugh, such a stupid thing to do... annoyed with myself.
