I've been trying to learn as much as I can before trying to put together a NPT... Pretty soon here I plan on ordering Diana's book. I've tried ordering the book through my local bookstore only to be told they can't order it. Amazon, here I come.
Anyway, My question is: Should I or shouldn't I add crushed shell to the soil? I've been seeing on how-to's to add crushed shell to the soil base if the water is soft. Would my water be considered soft? My water straight from the tap tests as: ph 7.4 GH-3/KH-5 I have been using an API test kit to get my results. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
