Just reading an article on instructables...

Anyone tried this?

I knew about the cut flowers.

-------------------

A crushed aspirin in water (one pill to one gallon) helps plants to fight infection and stay alive during traumatic plant experiences like transplanting, cutting, cloning, or zombie attacks. If your plants are dying in front of your eyes, it can be tempting to resort to extreme measures to rescue your little green friends with a water-soluble fertilizer. When stressed, however, plants can't really absorb all those delicious nitrates and phosphates. Dumping fertilizer on a dying plant is like giving a heart attack victim a multivitamin: not quite the ideal time for bioavailablility. Aspirin is the solution (pun!) for your mild flora emergency.

According to the exhaustive research I just performed on Wikipedia, salicylic acid can induce specific changes in root, stem, and leaf structure that create more robust plants. It can also help fruits and vegetables grow bigger and stronger. It will help your plants resist disease, insects, and unusually weak hailstorms.

Additionally, an aspirin solution will also help your cut flowers last longer in the vase so you can go nearly a full week before raking up the dead petals. Unless you're playing the "he loves me, he loves me not" game, in which case you should just count the petals in advance to determine your romantic status and let the aspirin keep the bouquet pretty.

I have heard of this but I do not know anyone who does it and I have not.

I will say, if it was so effective, it would be a well known thing in for profit agriculture plants.

I would say that before doing a treatment understand the plant stress, its cause and how to correct the cause and not so much its effect. In so doing, addressing the effect you can potentially cause more problems than what you solve, like a domino effect and when that happens, good luck.

With that said, I never saw anyone claim having a problem from using an asperin and I help with a vast many grow problems. I do not truly believe it would hurt you but I would not expect much from it. If people see a positive after using I think I would tend to side that the issue was just being worked out via other aspects than from the asperin but I do not speak with experience with it.

Take two (err one) and call me in the morning!

Think I might try it later in the grow if the plants look like they need it.

Maybe on a water only day.

WOW , I was just reading something on it being a root stimulator, ..I have been looking for a willy tree. .

Asprin i have a confuse tale as i dont know which part may have had a part , i mixed a gallon on water with a pinch of cal mag fish emulation and some root stim, and an asprin, the next day the plants all had the look of been hit with a torch, leaves olive green dull drying curled, they have been stunted ever since they are autos I am used to over doing something and seeing a slow change like nute burn, but this was over night Now about adding meth............? from seed to harvest in 12 hours.

I've been using aspirin to help boost the immune systems of various plants for decades. I know I've mentioned this before in threads, here on OpenGrow.

Aspirin (Acetylsalicylic acid) is derived from Salicylic acid found naturally in willow bark.
Salicylic acid creates an enhanced immune response in plants, helping them to better ward off attacks from insects, microbes & viruses and helps them deal with drought conditions or other types of growers neglect.

Soaking seeds in aspirin water can help with germination and soaking cuttings in it will help them root faster. Aspirin water also protects seedlings from soil-borne diseases that cause damping off and other growth issues.

Automan, I'd say you over did it by adding aspirin to a solution that already has a root stimulator in it... you essentially gave your plants a double shot and they didn't like it.
Try using the aspirin water as a standalone next time.

Aspirin for plants has been around as long as aspirin has... so I would say it's an old school remedy.... maybe you are too new school to understand.

Actually, there are many plant remedies to be found around the house, using everyday household items.

Perhaps there should be a thread for such a topic.

Hi Automan.

Are you growing in soil? If you are imo youíre throwing too much at them, less is more. Iím not familiar with fish emulation? Assuming itís a fish mix & that stuffs strong. Also did you add Cal mag because you had a defiency or just because ? Imo Autos donít need as many nutes but then I donít grow Autos, did it once & never again! Photoperiod plants out perform Autos, cost less to grow & can easily be finished in the same time as an auto, given the right strain.

Peace

Well the fish claims it does not burn the root stim was 1oz in a gallon, cal mag was a pinch, as u wud salt and the aspirin. i have grown a lot of autos and have never seen such damage and over night I was shocked , so in the end the only thing new was the aspirin...I will try it again with only the aspirin, to see. It may be the change in ph. ....these poor autos have suffered so, I planted them and they all popped so well growing , and then we had 4 days of rain,that stunted them , then i went and torched them . Its odd the way the leaves are bent its as if the plant were giving me the finger . And well they should , poor lil gals.

Strange mate

Strange they were growing so well then burnt.It's hard to over feed a plant outdoors, so prob not that, I'm not even going to figure it out, I've just got up. Ph ? Maybe but it takes a lot to kill a plant planted in the ground, they planted them round Chernobyl years ago to suck up all the heavy metals in the ground. I'm not going to sit here & try to work it out, you know your plants better than anyone & it is a coincidence that they went tits up after the watering. You could flushe the hell out of them, very hard to do in direct soil plantin. Just get some Lime chuck it down mix it in to buffer ph & leave them, Cannabis bounces back from the most ridiculous states..
. Funny thing I found out the other day. Apparently if you water with Rain water or it rains, the water reacts with shit in the soil, ( that's the technical term ;) ) and turns hard ! Can't bloody win. Outdoors my bitches get straight tap water from the hose & it's never hurt them once, they always grow strong healthy & give great rewards.

Good luck mate

Peace
