    Cigarettes?

    i was wondering if any of you smoke, not that its my business, and if you do do you smoke where your plants live? If you do have you noticed any adverse effects? Just curious becasue my parents keeps several plants (non CPs) and the smoke doesnt seem to bother them. Granted they may not be as sensitive as CPs...just curious.

    I smoked for 20+ years and it never bugged my plants any. Of course they were behind glass and not having smoke blown directly on them. I don't smoke anymore.

    My uncle used to ash in his pots and say that it was good for the plants ("supplies phosphorous" he'd say) I don't know if that was true or not but I never did it to my plants. Especially my $100 HL Neps! LOL

    depends on the plant......know from working in a greenhouse you dont smoke when transplanting tomato seedlings cause the nicotine on your hands kills the roots.....as mature plants though you can use it as a bug repellent on them, my dad used to soak chew in water and then spray the veggies with it....however just the slightest bit will kill them as seedlings.....

    as for ash, a lil ash is good for most plants, alot isnt as its full of other minerals and salts other than just the phosphorous.....lil bit is fine, a lot turns the soil alkaline.....

    I thought cigarettes could possibly give solanaceous plants, such as tomatoes, tobacco mosaic virus?

    possible yeah, in a huge farm where they are growing them for their livelihood it might be an issue....in a backyard setting i aint gonna go broke from it if it does happen.....i also dont suggest doing it in the southeast where tobacco is prevalent as it wont work aswell because some of the local critters have a built up tolerance...out here on the high plains though its not an issue....

    I would think the mere act of smoking, burning the tobacco before you inhale it, would kill any viruses or bacteria..just a guess, but it seems probable.
