Cannabis outdoors will grow and do ok at 6.2, but wont reach its full potential. Its a little late this year to begin raising the Ph because it takes about 30 days for even the most highly processed lime products to effect the soil and one shouldnt use any nitrogen containing ferts during that period as the combo of lime and nitro produces a soil costicity that isnt very conducive to good plant health.

If you're using strictly bagged soil, then you're perfectly fine -- the soil comes with a stable pH right out of the bag. The only time you really want to monitor your pH is when you're ammending it, ie. bone meal, kelp meal, manure, guano etc... Anything that isn't composted will typically have acidic properties, hence the use of dolomite lime and letting the soil "cook" for several weeks to stabilize the pH. Plotting soil won't support your plant(s) for the long haul, however, you can add earthworm castings or any type of compost to significantly enhance the nutes in the soil -- without changing your pH too much. Good Luck, Happy Growing!
So are you saying that I shouldnt even worry about the pH and just put in the potting soil and be done with it? Will this be ok? btw, my plants are in little cups right now about to sprout. Thanks for the reply!
