Thanks again everyone. zipcode, I do grow in coco coir year round and keeping my pH with in the range required is very easy using my consumer grade meters. I have 2 that cost less than $20 each and they are very close to my APERA pH meter. I was also thinking about the pH paper you mentioned zipcode. But, I get very good results with my current meters. The paper kits sold by our cooperative extension are very expensive. You must be checking soil runoff with the paper then. That's what I'll do to ball park my pH as well. This is for soil I'm building to fill 12-15 containers for a deck vegetable garden. I've NEVER checked SOIL pH before as this is my first container garden outdoors.
