How much sun your plant needs? How much water it needs? What kind o ...

pH 0 to 6.9 = acidic soil. pH 7 = neutral soil. pH 7.1 to 14 = alkaline soil


to thunderbird:

I very enjoy your helping others over puzzled, and you are always trusty by many of us.

but it is regret that I'd like to ask you: if the PH of soil represent to 6.91or 7.09 , then how to define the soil's property according you said? so the accurate defination should be describe as:0<pH<7.0,acidic; pH=7.0,neutral; 7.0<pH<14.0,alkaline.

it is my kind reminder,I hope you will not feel being offenced.

"pH 0 to 6.9 = acidic soil. pH 7 = neutral soil. pH 7.1 to 14 = alkaline soil" is for lay person (not accurate and scientific) but adequate for daily use.

"0<pH<7.0,acidic; pH=7.0,neutral; 7.0<pH<14.0,alkaline" is more accurate and scientific, a good answer in any academic settings. Certainly you would score 100% in an academic examination with your answer.

The first staement (my statement) missed the values between 6.9 and 7.0 and between 7.0 and 7.1.
Your statement is inclusive. You have not missed any values.

You should give it some foods(施肥) at the same time of watering it day by day.
