We have collected for you 12 effective recipes, from the best specialists, for the care of your pets. Use it for your health, and enjoy the beauty and health of your garden on the windowsill.
- Water is one of the main sources of life and growth for a plant. We do not think about what kind of water our flowers need and water with ordinary drinking water, mostly from the tap. Which, over time, can lead to yellowing of leaves, chlorosis and a white coating on the soil. This is due to chlorine and lime contained in drinking water. Therefore, water must be protected. It is also very important not to water the plants with cold or too warm water, the ideal variant of water for watering is room temperature. Pour tap water into the sprayer and leave it alone for a day. Having settled the water in this way, we will get rid of the harmfulness of chlorine, and ordinary lemon juice or citric acid will help to get rid of limescale in the water. A few grains of acid, or 10 drops of apple or regular vinegar per liter, will help soften the water. Another very simple way to get rid of the disadvantages of tap water is boiling. Flowers love to drink boiled water. And if you add fertilizers or biological fertilizers to such water from time to time, your plants will feel great both in winter and summer.
- The most ecological way to support and feed your plants is Sugar. Glucose, which is found in large quantities in sugar, is a source of energy for the plant. We recommend “sugaring” the soil in the pot from above and watering it with water. You can also dilute one tablespoon of sugar in 0.5 liters of water and water your plants with this solution.
- Castor oil. Ideal for flowering plants. You will need 1 teaspoon of oil per 1 liter of water. When using the product, plants grow faster, bloom beautifully and do not get sick.
- Wood ash copes very well with plant diseases. The most common way to use wood ash is to add it to a liquid. Not a large amount, usually it is 100-150 grams of ash diluted in a bucket of water, mixed and ready. Use ash no more than once a month.
- Peels from bananas, tangerines or any citrus fruits are very good nutrients for indoor plants. Take, for example, the skins of two bananas and fill them with water, leave to infuse for two days in a dark place, dilute this infusion 1:1 with water and water. My orchids are simply delighted with such feeding.
- It is very useful to add an aspirin pill to the water. One pill per one liter of water. Thanks to Aspirin, plants become more resistant to diseases, have a more saturated leaf color, and grow more actively.
- Aloe juice is a very strong stimulant for plant growth. It is a biogenic stimulant of plant origin. Thanks to this natural remedy, you can grow a beautiful and strong plant in a short time. Preparation: dilute one teaspoon of juice in one and a half liters of water.
- Milk. Milk is recommended not only for watering (1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). You can also wipe the leaves with a solution of milk and water in a ratio of 1:10. After wetting a cotton pad, wipe the leaves with the prepared liquid once a week. The leaves will shine, enchanting with their beauty and freshness.
- Yeast. Yeast when feeding indoor plants stimulates their growth. Thanks to a number of substances found in yeast, the mineralization of organic substances increases and the release of carbon dioxide in the soil is activated. To prepare the solution, mix 10 g of yeast with a tablespoon of granulated sugar and fill it with a liter of distilled water. Pre-infuse for 2 hours, dilute this agent with water in a ratio of 1:5 and water your flower pots with it.
- Iodine. It is a very valuable supplement for the plant, because thanks to iodine, the leaves of the plant improve, and the buds become bright and lush. However, one should be very careful with iodine, because if an overdose of this substance occurs, the plant may die. It is necessary to dilute iodine as follows: dilute drops of iodine in two liters of water and water with this solution once a week.
- Coffee. Add used coffee grounds to houseplant soil. It contains a lot of nitrogen, and plants love it very much. It is better not to water the plant very heavily after adding coffee, so that the nitrogen is distributed evenly. In addition, coffee makes the soil looser. Coffee grounds will be appreciated by plants that prefer acidic soil. For example, hydrangea will bloom very beautifully in such conditions.
- Nettle. Nettle is simply a great tool for restoring depleted soils. To create fertilizer, you will need 100 g of fresh nettle, which must be poured with 1 liter of water, covered with a lid and infused for a day. After filtering, dilute the infusion with water in a ratio of 1:10.
In order for indoor plants to bloom and develop, it is necessary to carry out regular transplants. When transplanting, the plants receive nutrients, and when the soil is replaced, the root system develops. Spring is the best time for this.
