What are the consequences of Low PH,

I recently found out that since the start of growth cycle up until the end of week 2 flower i had been measuring my PH with a broken PH reader and have been watering plants with a PH of around 4.... The plants seem to have been growing fine and look healthy and green.

If the low Acidity had started to effect the plants, what signs should i have noticed by now, if any. And what problems may occur because of this now.

Basically, 1) if i have hurt the plants (due to low PH) should i be able to see signs of that by now?

And, 2) since everything looks cool so far, have a caught the problem early enough for the plants to turn out as fine as ever?

Thanks

What compost were you using? Commercial compost buffers the ph itself so will have been fighting against your ph adjustment the whole time anyway.

Actually i just had a good read and feel a lot more confident abou tit now. thanks for the pointer... The canna terra soil does buffer PH. had a read about lime charging, makes sense. Thanks

I and most others don't even consider ph when growing in soil/compo.

Adjustments are far more detrimental to things like the microherd, and should with most brands of soil and feed be completely unnecessary.
