    Watering plants using carbonated water?

    Does stupids have a stupid idea...or not?

    I have a crazy idea I was thinking of this morning...I know plants love a CO2 environment...how would the plant respond to using San Peligrino Sparkling Mineral Water...would the roots transport the carbonation (CO2) to the leaves

    Or does CO2 only benifit the plant by entering the leaves?

    it would be much easer and you will get more co2 if you mix it with a good bottle of booze and talk to your plants.
    One 40 pound tank of co2 will make a 5000-10,000 sodas or last a large grow room about 2 monhs at 1500 +- 50 ppm.
    Note just normal breathing in a large room will up the co2 levels about 600 ppm over normal earths 300 ppm of co2 .
    But if your real rich go for it

    yes, this was the CO2 enrichment technique that I preferred.
    Particularly a sixer of microbrew.
    Carbonation in water makes carbonic acid.
    Carbonation in humans makes CO2 burps.
    Which one do you think your plant likes better?

    It would be better to spray the plants with cabonated water wouldn't it?

    Pointless, really. Save your carbonated water to mix with Scotch.

    also would leaving a can of soda or carbonated water open and just letting the drink lose its carbonation help the plant get co2?

    no............that would be a waste of soda, unless you drank it afterwords. you need a certain amout of co2 in the room for your plants to benefit.

    Oh come now I was busting some ass. I mean, yeah, I guess... but I drink for the effect on the grower, not the grow. Although I find I have more patience for the duller garden chores (flushing, blech!) after a few frosty beverages.

    what about the vinegar and baking soda trick?

    Bottle of vinegar hanging upside down with a cap that allows a slow drip into a bucket of baking soda

    its the lo-tech/lo-cost solution.
    might not smell the best though hehe

    I worked at a place, with the large K bottles about 3 times the size of a 20 co2 cyl. It would produce about 20,000 16 oz drinks.
    Note a 20 pound cyl. is enough for a 480 cubic foot room at 1500 ppm. But it only lasted 2.5 months.
    I like my soda with rum, now with your girlfriend getting drunk and having sex in the same room. At a normal calorie expence of 750 per person There must be a conversion between human calories and co2.
    One more thing that might work is rabits , when they are not breeding they are breathing hard. Note even harder when having sex.
    Unsafe I have heard that burning farts will convert it to co2 , but the conversion factor, between beans and farts may be also excessive.
    Brewing beer and wine kills two birds with one stone.
    Why the world turns , to keep farts moving. Termite farts are the #1 cause of co2 emissions in the world.
    If at anytime the jokes goes over your head ,stand up.
    Peace for Piece ass for grass, be happy.
