Does aerating plant water before you water your plants really make a difference? if so how long for a gallon of water...maybe 5-10 mins ?
you definatley want to use an air stone to aerate your water if you are using tap water. The reason we do this is because tap water has chlorine in it.. They put chlorine in tap water to kill any bacteria. The only problem is the chlorine doesn't differentiate between good and bad bacteria. it will kill your beneficial microbes that break down food for your roots to take up. You want to aerate your water for 24 hours. I know it sounds like a pain in the ass but just mix up your water after each watering and let it sit till the next day. Your plants will do much better. Good Luck!Does aerating plant water before you water your plants really make a difference? if so how long for a gallon of water...maybe 5-10 mins ?
It's good to get a little air if water will not be used for a while,but if you add nutrients,will smell like sewer if you do not use the stones,I do not comprehend chemistry .but I came across this article.Nitrate,oh yeah we were talking about air.Nitrate reduction is not good for farmers.Nitrate reduction is the substitution of nitrates for oxygen as a terminal electRon acceptor for bacteria,this means the nitrates (N03) then becomes nitrite (No2) and if the process stays ,a anaerobic and continues ,then the nitrite is reduced to nitrogen gas (n2) which then escapes from the soil. Many plants thrive on nitrates however if they are reduced to nitrogen gas,then the available nitrogen is reduced and the plants don't do as well.This is why a good deal of fertilizers are chock full of nitrates. Lots of people are stoning the heck out of the solutions I question these genies .I can dump lots of crappie on my lawn,tons of money,but if the phone is way high,or way low,your plants will not absorb.a lime has a ph- 4 ,apply to and when ground absorbs it will balance out. Throw some dirt in bucket to test.I use phone meter,ppm,meter,nitrite meter.moisture meter,and every thing I can, they are my eyes,record record,cause those tomatoes do effect your memory.and do not talk shit,I am full of it.pops did I say that.Does aerating plant water before you water your plants really make a difference? if so how long for a gallon of water...maybe 5-10 mins ?
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ChloramineNow I got to read some more,that's new word for me, we're on a well.I kept hearing guys talk about having ph lock out,throwing hands in air,and never flushing and dropping the media's PH-
