I need to find what kind of soil is acidic in my yard!
I have a few CPs coming in a couple days, and I need
to get a terrarium fixed up for them. How can I tell
if soil is acidic enough for CPs or not? Is compost
acidic? I have alot of that, but it is mostly horse
manure (!). Is that acidic?
See, I don't have a soil test or any litmus paper (I
read that's a way you can test soil). Just wondering
if there was any other way to tell...
