True, except your water source and nutes also play a role in the PH. Most people have no problem with promix, but you still need to adjust for ph. Some times it take awhile for the soil to balance.
I was told and even read that u don't have to do a thing to promix bx,
Just use water sitting out for 24 hours

Add powdered dolomite lime. Easy and cheap
Get the powdered/ground dolomite lime from Lowes. ~$5 for a 40#bag. In my area, Lowes is the only place that has the powdered/ground. You DO NOT want pellets or hydrated lime. Pellets are much too slow and hydrated is much too fast and hot.
"I" use 1tbl/gallon of mix or 1cup/CuFt of mix. Best added to the mix before use, but can be top dressed and watered in.
A 3.8 CuFt bale of ProMix expands out to ~7 CuFt, so a bit over 6 cups will be fine for a whole bale. If you do less, 1CuFt=~7.5 gallons. Best to add the lime to the dry mix and then wet it before planting.
