    Chilean Guava (Ugni Molinae)

    Soil question????

    Hi there.You say your soil is slightly acidic, so I would assume it has a PH of around 6.5? And, when you say you want to bring the PH down, you mean you want it more acidic?

    Seedlings domant ?

    Too early. The heat of the house has got them to germinate and now that they're out they've discovered that there is sod all decent light. As the days lengthen hopefully they will wake up.

    Reusing propagator soil?

    It's not that serious, but it's surprising how much compost you get through when filling seed trays and pots. :)
