Q on water sources (and a terrarium question)
    #4104075 - 04/27/05 08:52 PM (13 years, 23 hours ago)

firstly Im curious about using natural water sources such as stream water, rainwater, etc- this will be my first (and very excited and surely not last) foray into growing and id like to try some river water as i have a nice river just out front here- I will also launch a few jars with distilled water but if I use river water, are there any other things I need to consider in regards to contamination etc? I will be using BRF and boiling to sterilize.

also, Ive heard of adding mineral or vitamins to the water- is there any info around on adding trace minerals drops (like the ones available at healthfood stores)

finally, Im considering starting one or two jars while I get the hang of things and putting them in a small terrarium (a plastic container for now) then moving to a larger terrarium as I go along- any suggestions on number of cakes to terrarium size?

many thanks
(and Im still diggin through the posts, hope Im not being too redundant!)

before i would go using river water i would do some research into the river itself. As most of our waterways are so polluted these days I would be really hesitant to use it for anything. Ask yourself: would I drink that water?

h2o2 mixed with tap water will work, I usually use distilled water for my water source.
