  1. True! And may I add: 1/4 teaspoon of bleach per litre, and toss a copper penny in the water with the sugar. Sugar alone will increase bacteria but the bleach will keep that under control. Copper is a natural fungicide. I used to grow flowers just for cutting, but I don’t anymore. Prefer them in the garden.
