Aluminum is gonna turn you into a potato.Hello everyone. We have been doing some testing on a few plants to see how aluminum effects color. Plants ability to make anthocynine is based on P.H and the amount of aluminum found in soils. (Not the only factor). We are also dropping some night time Temps below 55f to stop chlorophyll production. I'm looking for anyone who also has experience with this. I'm currently adding between .5 grams and 2 grams. Of aluminum sulphate. To 7 gallon pots. Using silicon to move aluminum around the plant.
Please don't tell me how aluminum will give me alzheimers... this is simply testing for coloration... we can always send the samples for testing to make sure it's safe, also note aluminum OXIDE. Your more likely to get harmed from a baked potato. (Actually a steamed potato if you wrap it in foil) I have some info from hydrangeas but nothing other then that. We are having positive results with anything above 1.5g during the last 3 weeks. After everything has filled out. We also flush for 12+ days. And often leave a plant to "die" just to see where she ends up. Eventually we will get some proper data on the subject for everyone. Thanks for reading. Kennedy Family farm.
Simple ph and ec swings change anthocyanins ... Pretty cool.
