I know Lowe's sells a container of something that increases acidity in soil.. Can't remember the name.. But it's in the fertilizer section here..
U can try used coffee grounds.. They help increase acidity also..

Do you currently have to high PH, or do you want to adjust it to grow plants that requires a specifically low PH? If you just want to correct it, it will stabilise if you add plenty of organic material like grass clippings, leaves or compost.

I have the stuff for my hydrangeas to increase the acid and another to decrease he acid. Started using few days ago. Ph seems to stay same. Ph is on the alkaline side at 7.5, would like to bring down to 6.5.
Thanks for info., remember now how Mother would through the coffee grounds in garden.

Currently ph is 7.5, would like to get it down to 6.5 or lower. My lemon tree is running 7.5 but read it does better at lower ph. Same as my orchids.
