AbstractEvaluates the effects of irrigating container plants of Ilex vomitoria 'Nana' with reclaimed water in the greenhouse. Shoot dry weights of marketable-sized plants were similar when irrigated with 100% reclaimed water compared with 0% reclaimed water. Therefore, high-quality reclaimed water is a potential water source for container-grown nursery crops.
