With everything we hear now days about the damage to the environment by fertilizer runoff into our lakes, streams and groundwater; what is the best way of disposing or recycling our used nutrient solutions?

Hey,

I water my house plants, and outdoor plants anytime I have to "discard" any nutrients. For the inside plants I will usually cut the nutrient 50% with tap water. I do not...p.h. balance "waste nutrient".

My plants thrive, I have noticed a huge difference since switching from using something like a miracle grow product and such.

I worry about toxic build up of nutrients when watering household plants. Since in a pot there is no where for unused nutrients to go.
