Sure, do not add so much, if you add lots, the redox will go down. but in about 2-6 weeks, it'll come up again. If you keep adding peat(say like in a swamp) and no O2, then it'll reduce further.jerime said:Sphagnum peat moss is known to lower the redox potential of the substrate quite significantly. This will cause low ph and potential to produce toxic solfides etc'.
Can I avoids those risks? Is it safe to use peat in substrate or should I avoid it?
