Watering indoor plants with aquarium water...
Does anyone water their indoor plants with water from a water change? I think it would be beneficial in multiple ways. Recycling water, extra nutrients, fertilizer from fish waste etc. Any thoughts?
I have jars of plants on my windowsill that I only use tank water for, seems to keep them happy. I also used tank water for growing a sweet potato plant as an experiment, worked like a charm ;p
My tanks also serve as giant watering bowls for my cats who don't understand boundaries, so it's perfectly safe to use IMO.
EDIT: I also have terrestrial/bog plants in my hang on back filters, and they grow like crazy.
Plants in your filter? Sounds interesting. What kinds of bog plants?
i water my garden with aquarium water. plants love it.
I water my wife's houseplants with it.
They took off after I started and are doing great.
Planted HOB filters are gorgeous imo, and really fun. Plus a great way to help with water parameters. Just gotta make sure the plants receive enough light.
i water all my plants with my aquarium water. Why waste it when the plants thrive off of it. :-)
aquaponics uses fish waste to feed veggies. check out some videos on you tube. interesting stuff. i would like to try the ibc tote aquaponics set up.
there is a new filter that i just saw at petco yesterday.

i wonder how well it actually works.probably works the same as any normal hob with a plant stuck into it. just looks a little cleaner.
I'm for sure going to look into those filters. I'm assuming a hanging light will also be necessary since my tanks are in the basement with little ambient light correct?
