What does everyone do with their runoff? I'm planning on doing a backyard, outdoor,Β  in the ground grow with a plant or two, can in pour this on the ground where I plan on planting? Can I reuse it as fertilizer? Anything else to do with it?

Definitely feed it to your other house plants!Β  It still has nutritional value.Β  However, I should also warn you that salt-based fertilizers are killing the microorganisms in our soils, and I strongly recommend you not apply it to soil outside.Β  Would it help your plants in the short-term?Β  Yes. But in the long-run, salt-based nutes are very bad for the environment for so many reasons.

All my runoff is extremely valuable and I reuse every bit of it on my large outdoor pots of blooming plants. The hibiscus and sunflowers absolutely love it as does the roses and pots of annuals. I’m not overly concerned about microbial damage as I add plenty of good fresh compost each season and apply good qualities of JMS monthly. My sunflowers were 14 feet tall last year lol. Maybe they will get less this year as it got difficult to see the blooms way up there but the birds and butterflies loved it and were everywhere.

@im_sparky thanks for this,Β  I was under the impression I was using organic nutrients (foxfarm) but I was wrong! Thinking about switching to foop or something similar but that's besides the point. If I don't have any other potted plants what can I do with it? Half of it is from flushing also,Β  if it matters.

Yep same as others have said, I take the runoff and use it on my potted plants outside Smile

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

@monkeydo soooo if I replenish the microorganisms is not so bad? Started a compost pile and in the process of learning how to properly compost bison shit as well. Would that be enough to compensate?

@mrgrowsalot I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on microbes but that seems to be how it works in my garden.

@mrgrowsalot nothing special, I do hit it with some banana teas and a black strap molasses from time to time but that's about it.
