Did you know that Gardening with Alkaline Water® is beneficial? Try it. Your garden will thank you.
A Alkaline Water® system makes many pH levels of water.
It’s always actually making two pH levels simultaneously.
For instance, when we are making the drinking water pH 9.5, the “waste water” is 4.5. Acid loving plants, such as blueberries love this acidic water! Here are a few other ways you can use Alkaline Water outdoors and for your gardening needs.
8.5- use in hummingbird feeders. Mix 1 cup 8.5 with 1/4 cup sugar for the feeder. You don’t have to boil the water, just stir in the sugar till it’s dissolved. Hummingbirds love it!
8.5 is also useful to water bees and butterflies. Set out a shallow dish or pan with stones or marbles in it and add 8.5. The marbles give the bees and butterflies a place to rest while they drink. You can also use shells or all those “pretty rocks” the kids gave you at the beach… Set this up in the shade. Very helpful on hot days.
Because the nature of ionization is to make the clusters of water smaller, gardening with Alkaline Water® is great because plants can absorb more nutrients for the soil. 6.0 beauty water is great for tomato plants and most other plants, unless they have alkaline needs. You can water them with it daily, they love it! I use beauty water to help plants overcome heat damage, transplant shock, and other issues. Also I use beauty water when I fertilize, so they can utilize the nutrients better.
9.5 is useful for propagation. It helps root cuttings. It’s FULL of energy, so they start faster and stronger. I also will soak seeds in it before Planting to help them sprout. Typically seeds sprout much faster when using 9.5. This is due to the microclusters and the minerals
You can try a great experiment by taking two similar plants and watering one with Alkaline water, and one with tap water. The results are shocking.

9.5 and 6.0 are both good to add to your compost. You can just pour some in when you need to add water to the compost, or you can make compost tea.
2.5 is effective for fungal issues. As a matter of fact, In Japan they use it agriculturally!

Gardening with Alkaline Water® his healthier, and more productive!
Stay hydrated, everyone. And happy gardening!
