COULD VINEGAR BE A PLANT LIFE SAVER ?
Japan gave us F1 seed, so they may be on to something. The article is very vague, what if any dilution rate ?, how often ? and how much. Recently there has been information on using vinegar as a weed killer. Does the plant live if its malt vinegar? and die if its distilled vinegar?
To save water loss the plant would need to have some form of hibernation. When the weather is hot plants in the Black Country start to sweat, else where I believe they perspire. Now if they are losing moisture and its not being replaced then they are going to die, its simple transpiration as moisture goes out of the ends of the leave new moisture is sucked through the fine roots to replace it. Every one who grows tomatoes in a green house knows that on very hot days the plants look very sorry for their selves even though they have water. They are loosing moisture faster than they can take it up, large cabbage do the same, but as the evening cools the plant returns to normal. The question I am asking , is the workings of plants that have evolved and over thousands have years to work by transpiration suddenly going to change after a drink of vinegar?
