I'm curious about something with the mosquito dunks/bits. If you're storing rainwater in a a large container like barrel or garbage can and you use the mosquito dunks/bits to keep mosquitoes from raising there, wouldn't that mean that you're constantly treating the plants for fungus and fungus gnats? Any harm in constant use of the dunks/bits?
There shouldn't be any, in theory. Mosquito dunks/bits use a specific strain of bacteria that infect and kill mosquitos and fungus gnats - Those bacteria can't attack plants (or humans for that matter - We are closer to mosquitos than plants are), so the plants shouldn't mind their presence.
Of course in practice most of the bit is binding material, which could build up on the roots and damage plants if it's the wrong stuff and you're constantly using it - I'm not sure what they make it out of, so maybe someone else will weigh in on that.
