    I've heard that the water.. thats trapped inside coconuts.. I've heard that the water inside them is charged with potassium?? is this true??

    If so, would it be beneficial at all.. to use that water for water plants??

    just curious... ;)

    peace.

    this is what i found on some nutrition website:

    The good: This food is very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Vitamin C, Riboflavin and Calcium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese.

    The bad: This food is very high in Sodium, and a large portion of the calories in this food come from sugars

    i can't find a single thing about feeding it to plants, but it does have calcium, magnesium, potassium and manganese and a lot of sugar but is also high in sodium. i personally would not bother because there is no info about how much of these ingredients are in the stuff and i would imagine you mean feeding as a supplement and not as a primary food source. sounds expensive also. if there were a way to get a general analysis of what all is in there then maybe you could try to incorporate it. i would like to think that it would have a positive effect since it is so good for people and does have things that are good for mj. but people are not plants. interesting idea though. i wonder how it would be as a foliar spray early in flower. i could be wrong on this but i think i remember learning that the nutrients in coconut water are in the most basic usable form, and the stuff is sterile right out of the nut. i have also learned that the ph is identical to people ph and it's so pure it can be administered introvenously for dehydration in people. it's like some kind of miracle elixer lol. sorry i don't know what it will do to mj though.

    I'm not talking about feeding my plants with CoConuts..

    I'm talking about the ones out in the jungles.

    I'm talking about using the WATER only.. from INSIDE the coconut.. to WATER the PLANTS with.. not feeding the plant with the coconut. LMAO.

    is that what you thought I was asking?? lol..

    Either way, you had good intentions. Also, thanks for your support.. I think you had an Idea of what I was wondering about.

    Thanks.

    ok nevermind. what i said clearly shot right over your head. i copied and pasted from a website about the COCO WATER not the meat, but i can see how the phrasing is confusing. everything i said was correct as far as the great wizard of the internet is concerned. did you think i was suggesting making a foliar spray out of chunks of coco meat??? my entire post was about coco water lol. it's ok. smoke another one. and i will too.

    Hells, if you gotta extra flowering plant laying about maybe try it during last few weeks or a month and just see what it does. Sounds neat. I would like to know if someone trys it out on one or two. Let me know

    Would that just be for nutrients or flavor? It would be a good flavor if it took! i just started adding malasis (sp) to try and bring out more flavor. just pictured a giant pot plant snacking on a piece of fresh coconut sittin on the beach.. LMAO. better put this thing out for a second... eyes burning , seeing plants chase me.. ha ha ha

    If you are thinking of doing this , you obviously have never split open coconuts before. You would need so many coconuts and they are so much work , that you won't do this more than once. I lived in Hawaii for some time , and the coconuts are for the tourists.

    There is approximately 1 cup of water in a coconut. You probably need 12 cups of water minimum to water a plant once. So at about $1.50 a coconut...it'll cost you about $18 every single watering...per plant.

    that's what i was thinking but i wonder how it would be as a foliar spray. maybe too sticky? it's got sugar in it but i've never had sticky hands from it. it leaves more of a greasy residue than a sticky one. it's full of really good stuff. I think i may actually give this a whirl. maybe once a week foliar feed, i'm thinking until maybe week 2 or 3 of flower depending on the development of the buds. i would probably have to "rinse" every once in a while with plain water. could be a big fat waste of time but i searched for 20 minutes and was unable to find a single instance of anyone reporting anything about what it will do to plants. would probably cost around 15 bucks throuought the course of the grow if i use it once a week for about 10 weeks. my major concern is whether it will attract bugs which i suspect it probably will.

    Yes, you can use coconut water as a drench. Coconut water contains cytokinins among other biologically active ingredients. Cytokinins are plant growth hormones which promote growth in roots and shoots. Just make sure you dilute! That's 1 part coconut water to 15 parts water. Keep in mind it does contain a high level of Mg, Na, and K.

    You can make coconut water by adding coconut and water together in a juicer or food processor and blend the hell out of it...then strain it...we do the same thing all the time with almonds and drink almond water...FYI
