Want to save money and help your plant growth? Do a batch of all natural homemade fertilizer today. Here’s the process.
– Dried banana peels (Preferably organic banana peels
– Used and dried eggshells
– Used Coffee Grounds
Make sure Banana peels are dried enough. Also, dry used eggshells in microwave for a minute or so to dehydrate that. Also, coffee ground should be dried too.
Combine all ingredient in a blender and dry blend them to powder. You can just just sprinkle the mixed up powder around your plants, or you can put a few spoonfuls in your watering can, add a teaspoon of Epsom salt, and water the plants with the mixture. Most plants love it. The eggshell provides the needed calcium, banana peels is full of potassium and other nutrients, and coffee grounds supply nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and other minerals that support plant growth, especially leafy vegetables like spinach, kales, bok-chou etc. and hungry fruiting veg, like tomatoes and squash, early in their growth. Decomposing coffee grounds have their own fungal and mold colonies and those fungal colonies tend to fight off other fungal colonies and appear to suppress some common fungal rots and wilts, including Fusarium, Pythium, and Sclerotinia species according to some research. Or, you could feed all of the stuff to the worms in the tube if you feel lazy, and use the compost tea. I do both.
