"Colloidal" What does it mean?
The Microsoft Encarta definition of Colloid:-
"Colloid, suspension of tiny particles of one substance, called
the dispersed phase, in another phase, called the continuous phase, or
dispersion medium."... "Although individual colloidal particles are
too small to be seen with an ordinary microscope, they can be made visible
by means of an ultramicroscope, or dark-field microscope."

Silver: The Hidden Truths" explains the ways in which silver was prepared for consumption in
days gone by, and goes into more detail about the Colloidal state, plus much,
Colloidal Silver - What is it?
Colloidal silver is actually pure water which has
very, very, very small ultramicroscopic particles and ions of silver spread evenly throughout the
water due to a small positive charge on each atom.

Colloidal Silver - How is it made?
It is simply made using the electro-colloidal
(electrolysis) effect of two pure silver electrodes suspended in pure distilled
water. The electrodes are then attached to a generator which produces the
correct voltage and of the correct time/concentration duration.
NOTE: The silver
in the electrodes must be as pure as you can get.
water must also be as pure as you can obtain.
Pharmaceutical grade distilled
water should be used.
The test for pure water is if the resultant "Colloidal
Silver" is cloudy, the water is not of a pure nature. Don't use cloudy Colloidal

Plants and Colloidal Silver
Adding Colloidal Silver to the water in the
vase seems to extend the life of the cut flowers placed within.
Watering flower and vegetable beds with water
which has Colloidal Silver added promotes growth and disease free environment.
Add Colloidal Silver at approx. 3 - 6 tablespoons per gallon of water.
If you have any experiences with Colloidal
Silver in relation to your plants, please submit these through the Guest Book
(see menus above) and I will add them here.
From the internet:-
"Colloidal Silver will defend the plant's
system against bacteria, viruses, fungus and single celled molecular break-down.
It will kill germs, viruses, bacteria, and eradicate allergens, and pathogens.
It will stimulate healthy root growth and shiny leaves.
Extend vase life of cut flowers and help regenerate leaves and flowers/ potted
plants. It will stimulate a healthy root system and new shoots in hydroponics
tanks or glass containers etc., while keeping water crystal clear."

"Diluted silver solutions are also helpful
for germinating seeds into healthy inedible plant and flower sprouts. For
spraying leaves and flowers we recommend 5 ppm (undiluted) of either a clear or

in the garden, against bacterial, fungal, and viral attacks on plants. Simply
spray diluted Colloidal Silver on the leaves, and add to soil. "

"Floral and Garden
Colloidal silver can be used to greatly extend the time before decaying begins
on cut flowers. Probably due to the bacteria and other pathogens in water, cut
flowers placed that medium will tend to wither and die much more quickly than
cut flowers that are placed in water which has colloidal silver added to it. The
colloidal silver not only kills the pathogens in the water but is subsequently
absorbed into the flowers and taken to the cellular level where colloidal silver
works internally to kill remaining pathogens.
A colloidal silver solution in water can also be sprayed directly onto plants
and shrubs in the garden. The action of the colloidal silver positive ions work
on the outside of the plants to effectively destroy bacteria, virus, fungus,
etc. Garden food plants that have been sprayed with colloidal silver leave no
residue, as do poison sprays, and are safe for human consumption."

Recommended Daily Amounts
Due to restrictions placed on what this web site can present (see Home page), I am not permitted to recommend any particular dosage for human usage of Colloidal Silver
(see the Guest Book
for other peoples recommendations).
You may search the www for this info or purchase one of the books described on this web site which give information regarding the use of Colloidal Silver.
Plants and cut flowers seem to thrive when a little colloidal silver is added to their environment (soil or water).

the easiest way to proportion Colloidal Silver. It may be easier to use a conical
(50ml) medicine cup/dispenser.
Note:- Always store Colloidal
Silver in a cool, dark cupboard away from electrical wiring and live electrical
appliances - DO NOT REFRIGERATE
Do not store Colloidal Silver
in plastic containers - always use tinted glass bottles.
