At the same time, you have a lot of raw materials at home that you may not even know how would benefit the plants.


Let the flowers rise

Annuals and houseplants will appreciate many of the ingredients you have at home. They will still be
thrive and then bloom profusely during the flowering period. And even as demanding "boarders" as they are
for example geraniums, box plants or roses. The simplest helper in delivery
The nutrient is a common cube of fresh yeast. Leave one cube to ferment for 14 days in a container in
1 liter of water, then dilute in a ratio of 3: 1 (most of it is water) and you can add to the plants.
Just be careful not to fertilize the yeast more than once every 14 days and do not water it
plants too much. If the yeast does not ferment well or you pour it on the flowers too much, the soil is happy
it catches the mold and it is then transferred to the plant. Yeast simply helps everyone alive
organisms, including fungi…

How much coffee do you drink a day? And your plants?

Caffeine does not have to be harmful in all respects. If you drink coffee from a coffee machine or Turk,
sharpen. Coffee grounds contain many beneficial minerals and nutrients - nitrogen, or phosphorus
potassium. And delivering it to plants is easy. You can grind the beans after drinking
Let the coffee dry on a newspaper to spread it better in the soil, or you can rest the coffee
pour straight to the roots in a flowerpot. Ideally roll up slightly. You can incorporate sediment into
soil and directly to small seedlings in the spring. And a plant stimulant is born. Again

supply of minerals and trace elements. Do not waste leftovers. And although beer usually
there is not much left in the household and it is usually used to the last drop, if you would
some mysterious events have taken over, water the plants with it! You will see how wild they grow and how
you will then reap the great fruits.

Put the eggs there

If you are not vegan, knock one into the soil at the bottom of the pot when transplanting the plants
egg. The plant will gradually take the necessary nutrients from it and will grow contentedly and bloom profusely.

in the garden or even in pots at home. They are a beneficial source of calcium and effectively repel
many pests. If you are looking for a suitable fertilizer and supply the right nutrients from your home
resources also for orchids, definitely reach for garlic! All you have to do is press three cloves into
liter of water and then water it. Just a little. Plants will appreciate it and reward you richly.

Compost and earthworms

Composting has been discussed on all sides lately, even in prefabricated conditions.
Do you feel that you cannot have compost and fertile fertilizer? Error! A clever invention is the so-called
vermicomputer. It is a vessel that is ingeniously ventilated by sieves and in which earthworms live. AND

You can also "throw" coffee grounds, biodegradable tea bags on the vermicomposter,
eggshells and in fact everything you have left in the kitchen and the earthworms will enjoy. Although it is
to disbelief, the vermicomposter does not smell at all and does not smell, even if you have it in
heated apartment. On the contrary. Earthworms would freeze outside in the winter, so they even have to be warm
home. And it will create the best and most natural fertilizer for your entire garden!

with vinegar. Nature can handle. Just don't give up and you don't need a drop of chemistry. Even
it can be said without shame that without chemistry, plants can live better and bring larger flowers and a larger harvest.
