I was told to do this by a close friend and I thought he was out of his mind.
But he was right.
In arid areas where irrigation is necessary, some folks put large, strong magnets around their water supply pipe, and found that they reduce the need
for water by 25%.
The magnet apparently softens the water - making it "wetter," and easier to absorb by the roots.
And then, if you're feeling adventurous, you get a connector that connects 2-liter drink bottles together, the kind to show kids the "tornado"
effect, and you rotate that water for a few minutes, in vortex after vortex.
If you glue magnets onto the connector, you achieve two things at once, and the growth by using both the magnets and vortices - over being watered
with non-magnetic, non-vortice water is almost 20%-30% depending on what you're growing.
But in limited areas, a greater yield can be somewhat beneficial.
