The balls were called knick knackers I think. You are either older or younger than me or I posted a bad picture of them.

A lot of plants prefer a more acidic water and soil ph.

Yep. And they also prefer higher concentrations of CO2. See Idso.

It's not irrelevant. Those plants would thrive at the expense of other species, and the results could be hard to predict and/or hard to live with.


I sort of dabble in aquatic gardening. One thing I've learned is that plants are very adaptable to a wide range of ph and water conditions. Not saying I'm an expert on the subject, but maybe we give ourselves too much credit for what impacts our surroundings?

Could be. Or perhaps this was studied and the results were not favorable.

Oh, I think really well on my day off. Tell me where my thinking is incorrect?

They came out after I was an adult so never was interested. GI Joe also came out after I was grown so I thought "WTF, a doll for boys?"

I didn't have the heart or energy to start a thread that would be half troll, but I'll just drop this here because the hyperbole seems appropriate.

Maybe you can answer a question. Hydroponics is growing plants in water. Yet gardening experts keep warning me not to over water plants. Seems like a contradiction.

In a nutshell, it's all about adaptability. A plant grown in soil or above water that is suddenly immersed has to make drastic changes in the way it gets its nutrients. This could cause the plant to become stressed and possibly die.

Also, it could cause roots to rot

Thanks. It's good to see that they are still using the same language they used for Acid Rain and the Ozone scare:

Makes sense. BTW, did you know that the huge problem with Giant Salvenia in our lakes was caused by people planting it in their decorative outdoor water gardens years ago?
