Using Melted Snow as a Fertilizer
Posted 15 January 2011 - 01:01 AM
Some people call it the "poor man's" fertilizer...
I wish I had a way to test it to see what is actually in it. Because there is a crap ton where I'm at LOL

A: more surface area to gather all sorts of nasties (bacteria, pollutants), and goodies
B: snowflakes fly around the air alot longer than rain drops, giving them more chance to gather more nasties and goodies (nitrogen, oxygen etc..)
If you are worried about the bacteria, boil the water from the snow before use."...

I have used snow water for a bit now since it has snowed 2 ft lately. I put it in totes and water with it. There has been snow to melt for a month now. I always check the PPM. It is almost non-existent like 005-015 PPm .around there. The Ph is a little low around 5.7 but that can be dealt with. I am almost at the end of this 8 wk and it looks excellent with snow water. Oh and the water does have debris but the water itself is waay cleaner than the tap water
