Never tried it, but that's one expensive antifungal! (For the garden, that is...)

Actually it's very inexpensive.

All you have to do is buy two pure silver dollars, drill a hole and hang them into the water on a non conductive rod then charge them with a 9 volt battery. Two silver dollars will make tens of thousands of gallons of colloidal silver.

Once you buy the coins. The cost is merely water and a 9 volt battery every three months. 😊

It's much cheaper than buying fungicides.

I checked out the link, and I'm considering making my own! My mother and Sister-in-law have the ointment that has worked wonders!

Thanks for clearing that up! Thank You!

Happy Gardening! I tip my hat to you.

I used a plastic hand spray bottle to spritz some on my Hosta leaves that were developing fungus spot and the spots stopped growing immediately. It saved my new expensive plants!!❀️🌺

Is one positively charged while the other is negatively charged? I once made an HHO machine that way and made gas out of water using steel plates in a line every other one was positively charged while the ones in between where negatively charged the water will boil and the gas that is released is pure hydrogen family would get a kick when I'd stick a lighter in there and it would sound like a shotgun going off.

One coin is positive, one coin is negative because the 9 volt batter is touching both separately.

One coin will start to burn off or mist into the water.

I have also used it as a gargle to kill a sore throat in seconds. It will kill eye infections, runny nose, thrush and other yesst infections by soaking the infected skin. Also it has killed food poisoning.

This is my personal experience as to what I have used it for. I'm not making it up or making false claims.

I figured if it kills pathogens for humans then it will kill pathogens on plants. So I tried it. It worked perfectly.

Colloidal silver however does not seem to stop the flu once you already have it, it just lightens some symptoms, and it does not stop acne or pneumonia.

I accidentally discovered that making large quantities of home made pickles will cure pneumonia.for me. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

When you boil the vinegar and salt brine it becomes a vapor in the air that you breathe. The salt and cigar vinegar enters the lungs... and in just about 20 or 30 minutes you'll notice that violent cough is relaxing and breathing becomes easy. I accidentally discovered this by having an infant with pneumonia in the room with me to keep a close eye on her while I was making pickles.

Ever since, if one child starts coughing... I put on a pan of water and mix cider and salt into it. Then steam it while the family eats dinner. Treat everyone... because I know if the cold infected one child... the others have been exposed.

Btw... Colloidal silver also stops iris rot and fungus. I feel kind of sad for that some have not learned that silver works better than a bleach bath. 😊

Do you use apple cider vinegar or plain cider?

I use Apple Cider Vinegar.

I buy it in the gallon and mix it 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar. Then I dissolve 1/4 cup of salt to 1 gallon of the cider brine.

I usually use a large 3 gallon stock pot and just turn the stove on and steam the liquid for hours.... even to the point heavy condensation is on the cold Windows. 😊

Additionally I like to treat the children to a syrupy spoonful of Cayenne, lemon, and honey.

Truthfully I believe that if the vinegar and salt vapor ... kills bacteria inside the lungs it also is killing the airborn cold and flu spores floating in the air wherever the vapor permeates.

I can't prove it but it seems logical. 😊

Thank You! I will keep this in mind if we get colds it is worth a try and certainly wouldn't hurt a person.
