Colorado water : detoured, used effectively, or lost through evaporation?

Detoured water is that which is flushed down through a toilet, washed through a garbage disposal unit, or other wise washed down a plumbing line connected to the local sewage works. In a rural household it's the septic tank and drain field: the water, now in the ground, flows on to California. That's mostly true for the water processed in the city sewage works. Compare that with agricultural irrigation and escape through evaporation, , where the only effective water use is that which enters the plant root.

Rooting Ivy

I have tried twice to root ivy. Both times leaves began turning black and died. Attached is a pic of the latest try. I am using organic soil. I did use a rooting hormone. In the previous tries, I used a plant fertilizer. Thinking that was causing the starts to fail, I used no fertilizer with those in the pic. Starts are contained in a plastic, lidded container, sprayed every other day and are under grow lights for approximately 10 hours per day, at 60-65 degrees. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

In Ft. Collins we've had several sprays re: West Nile with permethrin-based products.

I didn't get the basil and parsley covered. What should I do to clean it to be able to use it in foods?

Thanks
