We’ve concluded another Water Pal Seed Sprouting Experiment. This time we used two trays of peat pellets which were purchased at our local big box store. Our kits came with 36 dehydrated pellets that first needed to be re-hydrated. The water source for both trays was chlorinated city water. Trays were watered equally. The control tray was watered only with Water Pal treated water. There was something we noticed that we didn’t expect. When the Water Pal treated water was added to the first tray the peat pellets absorbed all their water in about six minutes. The second tray took a full 30 minutes before the pellets were completely hydrated.
We planted Basil, Green Leaf Lettuce, Kale, Sage, Swiss Chard and Napa Cabbage. We chose plants that other people have grown in aquaponics but since this is our first attempt at aquaponic gardening we chose a variety of plants to start with.
The seeds were started on a Friday and received no attention over the weekend. By Monday there were multiple plants starting to grow out of the soil in the Water Pal tray. The untreated tray didn’t have any starts for two more days.
After seven days the Water Pal treated sprouting tray had outperformed the untreated tray by 73%.
What does this mean for you? Water pal not only saves time but also saves money by sprouting more seeds without having to be concerned about the water that you put on your plants. Not to mention more food on your table with no additional effort or chemicals.
