Interesting! Makes sense, I guess.

I am betting I could "dilute" the diva contents in water (to make it a similar constitution to the soaked-pad-water) and then just pour it in the plants. Sort-of like a compost tea.

Do you think freezing it would alter any important nutrients? probably not? (just out loud).

I'm glad this was such an interesting topic

Now I just need to decide whether to try it on my non ediables or not

After busily googling last night (did I just use "googling" as a verb? ), I noticed lots of people talking about how much it attracted ants! We have major ant issues here, especially during rainless summers, and I'm wondering if it's something anyone here has noticed.

okay...
a)when I got to the top of the picture, I nearly closed the browser thinking of all the things I might be about to see a picture of... Thanks for just showing the plants
b)DH would have me committed if he knew... Which on the other hand...3 hots and a cot could be a pleasant change...
c)I have learned after many times going afoul this is NOT something I plan on googling...I have searched seemingly innocuous stuff and gotten things that BLOW my mind...(AND I have the filter ON!)

searching "Menstrual plant fertilizer" turns up some pretty decent results.

I've gone from to as well. I'm going to have to keep reading.

This will be one of those things I learn on GCM that I don't mention to Dh...

The jury's still out for me on this one. My kids play in our plants constantly, and the possibility of pathogens has me spooked.

interesting, too bad I don't plan on menstruating for a while I do keep a water bucket though.... I'll have to remember this when I do start again!

My kids never played in my plants. We didn't have to worry about that. It can't be any worse than putting regular fertilizer on plants. We always have ants in Texas, it doesn't matter if I have plants or not, or what I used on them, I still have ants.

OMW if my DH even knew I was looking at this thread he would probably vomit. I probably shouldn't tell him I'm thinking about it.

I use a seperate bathroom during my cycle so it would be easy to hide, and I can just see myself sneaking out to the garden in the wee hours of the morning with a jug of pink water...

I think it sounds intriguing! After all, we planted both my placentas in the ground, planting a tree on one. Why wouldn't this work as well? I'm with Ashley...I don't think mine will go on edible plants though!
