the simple joy of arranging flowers

The color of some species of hydrangeas depends on pH level of your soil. Blue hydrangeas have to grow in acidic soil, with pH of 5.5 or lower pink flowers should be grown in soil with pH of 6.0 to 6.2 and purple flowers will bloom if pH is somewhere in between.. ..

how to keep hydrangea flowers pink

Once flowers appear, they wo not change color so you'll have to wait at least until the year to see color resulting from your efforts to modify soil pH.. 6. For yards with very acidic soil, it can be challenging to raise pH enough to get pink hydrangea flowers, and then keep it..

global warming and ocean acidification accelerate

then the oceans would be 144% more acidic than in the late 19th century or, equivalently, almost twice as acidic as they are today. Those future acidic oceans at pH=7.8 would reproduce conditions during Miocene, 14 to 17 million years ago, when Earth was several degrees warmer..

alkaline diets and kidney disease

While there is no good evidence that acidic foods alter pH and promote disease, the hypothesis that acid load relates to disease should not be dismissed. The kidney serves to regulate pH, and then it's very plausible that manipulating the diet to reduce the acid..
