Abstract

Over several years we have seen our succulent and other plants start growing as they never have before. We attribute this vast improvement to:

  • Dropping the pH of our water to between 5.0 and 5.5

  • Adding small constant quantities of ammonium nitrogen (50 – 200ppm) along with phosphorus, potassium and the necessary micro-nutrients to our water during the growing season.

  • During the off season when it is necessary to water, low-pH water, between 5.0 and 5.5, is still used for our plants without the fertilizer elements.

  • Setting up a watering system that can readily and easily handle and deliver the proper water and nutrients to plants.
