Adding oxygen to roots of soil grown plants?
    #329247 - 12/10/09 09:34 AM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Been recently using rain water that's collected in buckets out the back. But If I remember from Leaving Cert(high school for you yanks) Chemistry, there'll be bacteria in that water that will gradually consume all the dissolved oxygen in the water, and plants need oxygen around their roots to grow well. Is there anything you can add to water that will fill it up with oxygen? Would shaking it up do much?

This is unneccessary.
As long as your rainwater isn't too acidic, you don't need to do anything else to it.

You don't need to add anything to the water.

How much oxygen in your soil depends on texture etc.  You could carefully airate the soil around the plant. It works well when soil is wet but you could do it before watering also, which might help drainage etc.

All you need is a kitchen skewer & desert spoon (handle end because it's blunt and won't rip/break roots). Break up soil (sometimes 2-5 inches deep, sometimes deeper) around the plant with spoon handle. Might use a skewer for finer areas near Main stem. Feel for roots and be careful.

Not a bad idea about the airating the soil Jim, thanks. Synthetic wormage.

Synthetic wormage.IMO,Sounds like a way to stress plants. Digging around roots thinking your a worm.

Get an air pump with air stone, airy-ate the water.
