I have read that serval posters like to collect rainwater and use it to water their VFT's and other CP's.
I found this article that states:
Acid rain harms living things
When an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic. When those droplets fall to the ground as rain or snow, the acidity of the water can have damaging effects on the environment. When acid rain falls over an area, it can kill trees and harm animals, fish, and other wildlife. Acid rain destroys the leaves of plants. When acid rain infiltrates into soils, it changes the chemistry of the soil making it unfit for many living things that rely on soil as a habitat or for nutrition. Acid rain also changes the chemistry of the lakes and streams that the rainwater flows into, harming fish and other aquatic life.
I know that VFT's and other CP's thrive in poor acidic soil, so acid rain should not be too much of a problem for CP's.
My quesion is:
Is there a possiblity that rain can carry anything other than acid Anything from the smoke that results from the buring of fuels etc. Can rain carry anything that may be harmful to a carnivous plant (mainly VFT's)
I am aware that this is not much of a problem for people that do not live in urban or dense city areas, but for those that do live near cities with lots of traffic and industry, can their rain be harmful to VFT's because it may contain pollutants other than acid??
