use of coconut water as manure

in this Iam using coconut water as manure for my water plants
this is a cement cistern 4 feet diameter and 1 feet water depth .
every week I change 20 to 40 % water and do apply water from coconut more than 100 ml
and felt best result of growth in stem plants .

Now I have made separate tanks for each verities and continuing trials.
Cytokinins in coconut water stimulate root growth
so it is better to newly planted tanks

share your experience in similar cases.
Regards,
NEIL

Neil, Coconut water is a very good source of nutrients for aquatic plants.

Growth is very good. Your plants are very close to nature. I always like these types of low tech setups. All of we should promote these types of setups in the hobby.

Solar panel can be used as the source of electricity for air pumping.
12 volt panel
3 volt regulator
3 volt battery pump

here in this trial i direct gave supply to pump without storage.
For the use in night time we have to store .If we use 220 volt AC devises
we have to invert 12 v dc from storage battery to 220 v AC

But for the day time usage we can depend panel
by using 12 LED drivers and 12 volt CFL ballast etc

lets start some back to nature(back to future) trials .

after partial water change (less than 40%) I use 100 ml+
(water from a coconut- one zip I swallow and rest to my plants)
water from tender coconut give more better result
Now Iam testing 5nos of 125litre tanks
so no coconut water is wasted from kitchen

Wow... Less chemicals, more Nature.... Is it possible to use coconut water in a tank which has fish in it?

@Neil (please excuse the short form :mrgreen: Hope to get used to your name soon :))

The use of coconut water is ingenious, well done Neil. Very plesed to see you here. I think i have seen your inspiring experiments on Facebook. With eyes open w i d e, actually :lol:

You seem to have not only made plant-keeping cheaper but brought it more close to nature.. Very inspiring.
