Turtle Scum fertalizer!!
« on: July 11, 2013, 10:50:28 am »

So far, it is an experiment working well thus far with my Acacia Confusa plant and one other. Out of my several plants, the Acacia looks to be the healthiest.
I started the experiment thinking about humid environment plants having amonia rich soil in a lot of instances(not all of them of coarse) and with my turtles, I gett a free supply.
So far I used it as a soil addative in high amounts for one plant and small amounts for another(also doing well).
It could be by luck that it is working, or it is usefull to the plants. Im not sure.
It will take a bit to get more(I just cleans the tanks, but it shouldnt take too long.)
I was wondering if anyone else, maybe in the future, would be interested in the same experiment.
Maybe someone can tell me I am crazy..I dont know. Either way, I look forward to responses!!

I don't think you are crazy...but I can't help but wonder about the odors.   I remember what my turtle water smelled like when I was a kid (yeah, OK so that was 50 years ago) so I'm not sure I'd be willing to use it on any plant that needed to come indoors during inclement weather or over the winter.   :-\

My plants are guests in my home.  We share our living space with them.  Smelly guests would not be welcomed guests!   :)
