    this is probably a dumb question so i just need some confirmation, its ok to use pond or river water correct? of course the obvious answer is yes b/c its naturally there lol, but i have always used tap water but since im growing around a pond and/or river this year, it would be easier to mix the nutrients there...what do ya think? theres no negative side of using natural water,right or wrong?

    Shit............. I would think that it would be better than tap water. The ph maybe a factor.

    Well I'm sure it will do.

    I've seen what a clean river's water can do. Nice growth.

    What I figure is the benefit are microbes, minerals and H2O.

    I add minerals now to my soil and I feel minerals are a good thing to add.

    The microbes in natural water are great for plants as Randy said.

    Take a tester and test the ph. It will probably be fine. Sometimes the steams and ponds around here have low alkalinity but have a high iron content. It's usually pretty evident from the clearness though. Wish i had a source at mt grow spot. I have to lug distilled water. :BangHead:

    Oh for sure Nature has it dialed in.

    I read it is suggested to add an air stone and air pump to standing liquids.

    I read it boosts the good guys and keeps the bad microbes at a minimum.

    Hey Choker..

    Yeah best to check on it...

    I wish I could go and grow in the woods. Kick back at the camp site and water with clean mountain runoff.
