Fish Emulsion and Copper Watering Can
« on: March 13, 2013, 07:53 PM »
Do you think fish emulsion would mess up or clog a nice quality copper watering can-with a fine flow head?  I've typically only used the plastic watering cans with fish emulsion.  thanks!

I've been using this combination for years.  I usually pour in a cap full into my (relatively small) can, and give it a quick stir with a wooden chopstick or piece of aluminum bonsai wire.  I think that's the key.  A plastic chopstick or something else probably wouldn't work.

I use fish emulsion and seaweed extract in my brass can every week with no problems.

Another question for you is what is the ideal size for a copper watering can?


On Ebay
I see several that are 1.8L and or 6L, which is something like .5 gallon or 1.5 gallon.  What size do you like and where would you purchase one?  Thanks!

Just my two cents here.... The size is a personal thing, the important feature is the rosé at the end. You need a very good quality rose to spread the water flow in a very gentle pattern....

Thanks Dre, i've been looking at that one for a while now but have not bitten the bullet yet.  Please let me know how it works with fish emulsion.  I'm a little worried that it will clog, but still want one.  I've been extremely happy with everything Kaneshin that i've purchased, very good quality.

Dre i got this three level tool case from husky for around eighty bones, and it is awesome, I'll email you the one...what's great about it is its versatility, you lift a lock mechanism and push the third level drawer back and it pushes back on its haunches and every drawer opens and is fully accessible, its like a freaking transformer haha
