You may be surprised to know how easy it is to fan some of your own nutrient-filled fertilizers.
in your kitchen There are two types of organic fertilizers: liquids and solids. Dry fertilizer has more components and can be more expensive to make, but remains in the soil throughout the season, fertilizing slowly for months. Liquid fertilizer packs a single time-rich nutrient and can be made easily using just a few ingredients. So, I'll give you my three favorite recipes and you can try them all.
In a large 20-quart bucket combine:
- 2 quarts bone meal or rock phosphate
- 1 room fish meal or blood meal
- 1 room kelp flour or green sand
- 8 quarts organic seed meal
- 1 dolomitic lime room
Organic liquid fertilizer is easy to do and does wonders for all plants, especially during the growing season. It is made by adding nutrient rich organic matter to the water and leaving it to soak for 24 hours. I use both humus worm (humus worm) and bat or guano seabirds indistinctly.
Guano Tea - For guano tea add 1 tablespoon bat or guano to seabirds to 1 gallon of water (preferably distilled, rain or well water). Remember to stir the guano vigorously before adding. Mix well and let the mixture soak for 24 hours. The mixture of guano bird or bats will not smell nice so it's a good idea to carry out this experiment in the garage! I found out the hard way. After 24 hours, use the mixture to water your plants thoroughly. This process should be repeated once every two weeks to get the best results.
Vermicompost Tea - For vermicompost tea add 2 cups organic worm humus and half a teaspoon molasses a gallon of water, again very well distilled, rain or well water. Stir well and let it soak for 24 hours, stirring once every few hours. This fertilizer can be used to water the plants, but it is also beneficial when sprayed on the plant itself. Ability to charge up to a clean mister bottle with vermi-tea and spray the foliage and the surrounding soil to avoid fungal infections and insect pests. Unlike stinking bat guano fertilizer, this odorless liquid is ideal for indoor plants. Repeat this monthly process, and watch all of your new healthy growth!More news: The Zen Birdfeeder: Young Birds
