Soil ph wont go down?

  1. <blockquote class="">Hey everyone!
    \tQuick question here...

    \tI Transplanted my almost 2 month old plant from a 2-3 gal to a 5 gal.
    \tYesterday, I flushed it maybe 3-5 times in 3 hours of time with ph'd water at 5.5-6.0, and the runoff still comes out at 7.0-7.1!

    \tIt was 1:30 am and I said fuck it I'm too tired to go on...


    \tI'm using Promix soil with perlite, added a tablespoon of epsom salt and calcium in the mix...

    \tI didn't had problem with my other pots, and of course I understand that since the pot is bigger it needs more water, but I litteraly flushed it for 3 hours, with not a single drop of the ph runoff.

    \tSo what should I do? Just keep watering and feeding next time with adjusted ph to 6? Or should I try and flush again until the runoff of the soil gets to 6.5?</blockquote>
