Regarding the hibiscus test i have something interesting
I always believed that my soil is alkaline....and the test also proved such with quite greener color.....However i noticed that once i microwaved the hibiscus flower the water instantly turned greener and then after mixing of soil water maintained or slightly got more greener......This arises two questions
Could it be that my water is Alkaline in nature?( i did not use distilled water
Secondly my soil is sandy and it is said that sandy soil are towards acidic side due to leeching of sodium/calcium underground with water quickly ......
So sandy soil with alkaline nature makes it a difficult proposition......could it be that my soil has not as yet underwent enough leeching/watering to make it acidic
require your expert views
