Re: Green water

In my experience, osmocote produces the best, most durable green water I have 
ever seen. I have a 1 gallon jug of green water sitting in room light only, 
that was obtained from a tank of green water caused by osmocote. It has been 
sitting there for about a month, and it's still dark green. I didn't check it 
for ammonia or nitrate though. Could be it's at toxic levels.

David Youngker also posted a few weeks ago that he was able to successfully 
grow green water with only a few beads thrown in a 5 gallon bucket.
