    I can't say from experience. But I bet it would be harmful, since its an acid, I wouldn't allow it to directly touch them (like spraying them). However, I would prefer to clean the glass of my terrarium with vinegar (with a sponge or towel) than with windex!

    I am pretty sure people have tried this, but I don't know the results. I will see if I can dig anything up on it with a friend.
    I assume you are talking about lowering the pH of the water you use by adding a teeny bit of vinegar? I think some people have actually used acids to do this too.
    A safer method would be tannic acid, ie making peat tea to water with.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Actually, even rain water has minerals in it, and vinegar does a terrific job of dissolving them.
    So it would be an easy way to make "purer" water without an RO unit (being "just a student" I certainly do not have the budget for one, unfortunatly.)

    And its cleaning the tank at the same time.

    Cath, do your grocery stores carry distilled water? Do you have access to a laboratory that can slip you some deionized water?

    I like the creativity. You know how I feel about "always and never" doing things this or that way. Now which plant will be the "guinea pig" for this experiment? Shall it be the ever compliant D. spatulata?

    Hey, if nothing else, the vinegar smell should offset the garlic. but you might have trouble with mythological creatures! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
