Can I use the water from my fish tank for my DWC 5 gallon plant?
To each their own. If your brother enjoys it and doesnt mind any longterm effects who am I to judge, But personally I myself am against jumping into unknowns without verification. But thats my opinion, and Im not a scientist, Im just a guy wh holds my edible/inhalable horticulture to a higher standard.My brother uses the water from his mates koi pond and some
Kind of shitty tomato feed and he grows lush plants he don’t even own a ph meter,he grows outdoors in flower pots
To each their own. If your brother enjoys it and doesnt mind any longterm effects who am I to judge, But personally am against it without verification and I see plenty of people on here posting their nutrient ammendments and brand soils and most of the brands are not the pure, healthy or organic kind upon research. Wel Gro and Fox Farm stand out to me as ones I have read recently to stay away from, but thats my opinion, and Im not a scientist, Im just a guy whoI holds my edible/inhalable horticulture to a higher standard.
If anyone is
A) growing vegies to eat and or inhale and
B) the water source feeds/supplements their Koi/fish with food or medicine Id personally want to know
1. what was in it
2. where it was sourced and possibly
3. get the water tested by a water treatment center for harmful toxins/carcinogens etc to save myself from worry.
I come from a lineage of sustainable dairy and potato farmers, and I also have a family history of lung cancer unfortunately. I try to take as much precaution as possible in how and what I grow with, especially true if the end product will be something that is inhaled/vaped. I wont use most of the gro mediums or fertilizers listed in the forums here. Nothings better than le ole natural as far as Im concerned. My native soil is rich and pure and organic and so is everything around me from fish food to human food to soap and even scent free baking soda laundry detergent. Tend to nature, make it pure, and the heavens will provide with purity and prosperity in return.
I regard negligence of ones health and the environment to be a sin worse than death and I approach life accordingly. But I am not your brother or the gen pop, and I may seem crazy to most people like your brother and most largescale farmers and even most pot growers and smokers , but I rest assured that most cancer patients and le ole time boostrapping mom and pop farmers of pre-monsanto generations would be firmly on my side.
Lifes a garden, you get what you put in.
Tiling and planting bears you fruit, but at the end of the day, the fruit is only as healthy as what you put into your garden in the first place.
