Ok, so this is a popular amateur growers myth - that pouring used bong water in plant pots might make the plants more potent somehow. This myth was popularized by stoner comedies in the late 90's and early 2000's, when house growing became gaining popularity due to modern growing equipment being now more compact and available, and I think it caused problems to lots of people, so I think I should address this.

First of all, bong water is full of oils which will accumulate on the surface and block oxygen from the soil, causing roots rotting and poor growth.

Second, pouring bong water into the pot is the easiest way to get mold in there, as well as pouring green tea there, and any other raw organic compound. Organic matter takes time to break into nutritious elements, this is why compost piles are made - compost lies there for a while, several years actually, before it is digested by the bacteria and turned into nutritious matter for the plants.Putting raw organic matter in the pot will only pollute the soil, attracting fruit flies and other unwanted inhabitants.

Third, bong water contains sooth, which is highly alkaline, and will definitely fuck with soil's pH level.

After all, you wouldn't drink bong water - why feed that shit to your plants? They don't like it!

And I know for a fact this is true because I've unintentionally put this experiment to the test. My backyard dude. 1 patch of grass for a solid year mah dude, and then next thing I know there's no more grass, in fact it was so bad the dirt began to crack, shit looks like the Mojave desert now.

I once accidentally spilled fertilizer like that, with similar results, this is why I would rather put less fertilizer than overdo it.

Honestly me and my roommate had a baby Mary Jane sprout and we got a "highdea" and watered it with bong water and it died 3 days later. Oops.
