What to do with water

OK, I admit that all of you experts probably do this anyway but I recently discovered something about the water I remove during water changes: it is likely to have some decomposing food and plant matter as well as nitrates and nitrites in it which are all very healthy for plants. I started using it to water my indoor and patio plants rather than just dump it down the drain and they are flourishing!

I got the idea when I bought a tillandsia air plant. The grower recommended soaking them in aquarium water (if you have it) instead of fertilizer because of the nutrients in the aquarium.
