Saving water the organic way!
Our local organic guru in the Dallas-Ft.Worth area has done some interesting research in the area of water conservation: Saving water via organic gardening
Just look at the difference in the “test plants”! Quite amazing!
I have noticed the difference especially in the indoor plants that I have re-potted into a rich organic media. They only need water about once a month, VS every two weeks or more. He mentions that Soil with 5% organic matter can hold almost 200 pounds of water in every 100 pounds of dry soil. A similar soil with only 1% organic matter can hold only 30 pounds of water in the same soil and I have found that in my own indoor plant testings.
Quite amazing to watch and play with! :-)
