MRET Water and Cut Flowers

For this test I took twelve carnations and split them into two groups of six.

MRET water was used on the left and regular tap water was used on the right.

This is the first day of the test and all plants look equal.


This is the fifth day of the test. Notice that the first flower in front on the right in regular water is starting to fade and the pedels are closing.

Also notice that the regular tap water has started to cloud. There is actually mold growing on the leaves and on the top of the water.


This is the sixth day of the test. If you look close you can see that one of the flowers in the regular water on the right is almost closed and a second is closing. Three of the flowers show signs of fading.


This is the seventh day of the test. Notice that one flower in MRET on the right in the far back is starting to fade. The remainder of the flowers in MRET look like the first day.

Two of the flowers in tap water on the right have closed completely and three are fading. One still looks very good but has fading on the bottom pedels.


This is the ninth day of testing. Only one flower in MRET has closed and the remainder still look like new.

The flowers in tap water on the right have all faded with three closed and two almost closed.

The tap water smells bad and is brown. The MRET water is still clear.


This is the eleventh day of testing. Notice that all flowers in tap water are spoiled.

Only the initial flower in MRET is dead and there are slight signs of the pedels fading on the tip of the bottom of the pedels.

Notice the water is still clear in the MRET but is moldy in the tap water on the right.


On the eleventh day I took the one dead flower from the MRET water and the first dead flower from the tap water to view the plants. The MRET flower was still fresh except for the pedels and the stock was hard and natural. I was told by the florest that plants are very fickle and you can easily get one in a group that will die for no reason.

The tap water flower was completly molded and decomposed below the water. It literally fell apart. The plant smells bad and the water is brown.

Remember these tests are being conducted with NO additives to the water at all. Florests put special chemicals into the water to kill bacteria and sugar for feeding the plant. Florests claim they can keep carnations alive for up to 14 days with chemicals and in the cooler. These plants are being tested with no additives and at room temperatures between 75 and 80 degrees day and night.

The carnations in the MRET lasted 21 days before fading. We then took the same MRET water and put in new flowers. The water remained clear except for some green from the plant color that faded into the water. The water still had no smell after 30 days and the flowers continued growing. The flowers in the old MRET water outlasted the life of flowers in original tap water.

We conducted many tests at florests and found that our MRET water definately kills the bacteria and other agents that try to grow in the water. The best results are still with the package the florest gives with your plants because the packet contains food and a strong acid compound. We found we could almost duplicate the florest results by squeezing one lemon into the MRET water. The lemon raises the acidity of the water which "burns" the inside of the flower (especially red roses) to help keep air flowing to the flower. Also make sure you cut your roses below the water and trim the leaves to above the vase. Exposure to air even for a few minutes can create an air bubble in the rose which will kill the flower. You should cut the stem (below water) on the roses every few days. We will try to conduct tests with a lemon and sugar with MRET water. Another test to try will be to Activate Mountain Dew soda which has a high acid content and sugar.

Remember our MRET water even with lemon in it is safe for animals and children where florest water is not safe to drink. Also our MRET water works with Live and Cut flowers. You cannot pour florest water on your live plants.

Please note - If you are using unusually pure well water or purified bottled water you may not see a difference in the plant life because the bottling process may have already killed the bacteria. What is important in the test is that the MRET flower stems below the water stays hard for more than 10 days. In normal water containing bacteria without running the MRET unit the flower stems will decay below the water.

Once again MRET is proving its life giving force. Can you afford not to use this water?

We are conducting additional tests with biology, botney, nursery and governement facilities. We wanted to post the results so far because they are simply amazing.
