I'm going to grow some plants for my new house so that it will look good.
It's raining heavily. Enough water for my plant.
My plant isn't growing. I gave her sufficient sunlight and water. What's the problem
Anisha, it's because of the rain. The industries and the gas produced by cars like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide precipitate in a high level. This mixes with rain water and makes the soil acidic. It harms us too Anisha. It can also be basic when there is too less precipitation and minerals from soil makes the soil basic but it rained a lot in the last week so I'm pretty sure the soil is acidic.
My plant isn't growing. Do you know why?
Check the pH using soil pH meter. Acid has a pH of 0-6, neutral with pH of 7 and basic with pH of 8-14. You can neutralize the acid Anisha. Add limestoe and basic fertilizers so that the soil will have a pH close to 7. When an acidic soil+Lime which is CaCO3=Neutral soil+salt+H2O+CO2. Since lime is a carboate and the chemical property of acid says that the product of acid and a carbonate forms salt, water and carbon dioxide.
