    Exclamation Rainwater is also good for coffee ...

    Attention fellow orchid addicts!
    If you do collect rainwater and store it somewhere in the house...make sure your hubbie doesn't find it on the kitchen table! Because my hubbie made me (as always) a great cup of filtered breakfast coffee...with milk...2 tsp of sugar...and some ph buffer to keep it at 6.0
    Might I add I stored it in used mineral water bottles we buy every day at the store but in my defence I had written on it (in bold caps) RAINWATER with a date of collection aaand the number of the bottle.

    I 'm thinking... I am grateful for not being able to get hold of worm tea... (btw what a euphemism that is!)

    Have you checked your pH lately? You might need to drink some coke or something to get your stomash acid levels back to normal!

    Yeah I guess I'll have to swallow some ph-upper tomorrow, cause I had been feeling a little under the weather.
