Hello all. I wanted to share what I do with the used water and minerals since that crap is so expensive. Every thing I see in watering they water and then the water drains out of the bottom into the sink.
I put the plants in a regular pot then I purchased a larger pot that has an elevated bottom. I’ll water and the water collects in the outer pot. I then collect all the used water and pour it all into a 5 gallon bucket. Then I take it and use it to water my vegetable garden with. I’m getting some killer ass tomatoes
The bigger pot also helps let the inner pot drain more and collects it so it’s not a mess and since it’s raised the soil is never sitting in standing water
