Smart Water? Electrolyte enhanced
    #4406023 - 07/15/05 12:20 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Glacceau's Smart water..pretty expensive stuff.

Anyone know anything about this stuff? Is it beneficial for DUNKING/misting or can it cause problems? Anyone know exactly what electrolytes are and what they could possibly do for people mycologicaly?

Ingrediants-vapor distilled water, electrolytes(calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, magnesium bicarbonate)

i wouldn't mess with that kinda enahnced water. becuase electrolytes are derivatives of salt. they are used in the electro chemical reactions tha tour nerve system uses in organisms. Like if you feel dehydrated gatorade will hydrate you faster becuasei t contains more electrolytes.

since electrolytes are derivatives of salt, that could screw with your pH. I would recommend using sterile distilled water for best results.

i mean you could exsperiment, but i think you would just be wasting your time and money IMHO

Water works. why change it - if it ain't broke.

If you want to increase the moisture retention capacity of a substrate---> add verm & natural DE, that helps.

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate
