Plants collect food from the soil. Indoor plants are grown indoors in low soil. So the food from the soil runs out very quickly. Therefore, if the trees has to grow up in this soil, food must be collected artificially. Let’s know how to make Homemade indoor plant fertilizer
Let’s learn how to make plant food:
Leftovers from the vegetables we eat can become our plants’ favorite food. Another name for these is Sabujsar. Because these are made from the green part of the plant. The food we eat is like a gourd, cucumber, green vegetables, etc. We don’t eat the rest of these. We throw them away. There are various types of nutrients inside this rest which are especially beneficial for our houseplant. As we know bananas are rich in potassium. Eating this banana fills up the deficiency of potassium in our body.
Similarly, the outer covering of a banana, which we call peel, is also a source of potassium. It also contains phosphorus and magnesium. If this peel is placed at the base of the plant, the potassium deficiency of the plant will be fulfilled. We eat chicken eggs. Eggshells are also very beneficial for plants. Eggshells contain a lot of calcium, which makes up for the lack of calcium in plants.
Fertilizer Preparation Method:
First, take a large pot with a lid. Make sure there are no holes and no water spills. After that, the rest of the vegetables or fruits should be cut into small pieces and put into the lidded container. Then water should be added to it. After that, the mouth of the lid should be kept closed until this residue does not mix with the water. This water should be drained after leaving it for a week. And the drained water should be applied to the root of the tree.
How to apply fertilizer:
First, the soil at the base of the tree should be dug and softened. After that, the soil around the base of the tree should be removed a little. Then, cow dung should be applied to the bare area or the raised area. 1/2 inch thick dung manure should be added to the soil that was raised on top of it. After that, water should be given. If you make fertilizer from the remaining part of the plant or dung, then you can apply that fertilizer directly to the root of the plant.
In this case, there is no need to remove the soil at the base of the plant. Liquid fertilizer can be applied at the base of the plant. The green manure from dung manure can be taken as food by the plant relatively quickly. Application of these fertilizers will not cause any damage to the plant. Because it is an organic fertilizer. But chemical sir cannot be applied directly to the root of the plant. Then the roots of the plant will be damaged.
This fertilizer can be applied to any plant: You can apply organic fertilizers to all types of plants. If you want, you can also use it as an indoor plant. There is no binding rule. The more you apply, the more yield you will get. You can’t apply these fertilizers only to plants that grow in water. There are different types of chemicals for those plants. When mixed with water, plants get nutrients.
Will the application of fertilizers cause any harm to the plants: If you apply green manures, there will be no harm to the plants. But if chemical fertilizers are used then the plants will be damaged as well as the environment. Therefore, all types of chemical fertilizers should be avoided. The use of organic fertilizers should be increased.
How often to use:
You can use organic fertilizers whenever you want. There is no fixed time for it to be paid every so often. But it is better to use green manure at least once a week. Care should be taken when adding dung manure until the manure gets mixed with the soil. If the soil rots, it should be fertilized again. However, if you apply fertilizer before watering the plants in the morning or afternoon, it is convenient for the plants to collect food.
