Have you bought some beautiful green plants, but they didn’t last long? Some indoor plants can indeed quickly suffer from poor light or direct full sun, a lack or too much humidity or even too much or not enough watering with hard water. Their foliage or flowering tops then lose all beauty. No need to limit yourself to varieties of succulents (or succulents)! We have concocted a grandmother’s recipe to save a plant in bad condition with the only tool a blender that will help you achieve this ingenious trick. The ingredients used contain nutrients known to promote plant growth. This super homemade fertilizer will give plants that really need it a second life!
What you need :
- 1 mixer
- 2 banana peels
- 1 cup of coffee grounds
The steps to save a plant in bad condition:
1 / First, reduce all the ingredients to a pulp in a blender
2 / Then pour the mixture into the soil of your flower pots, directly on the substrate. Count around a tablespoon for a small plant and two to three tablespoons for your larger pots.
3 / Then you will need to maintain by adding this mixture once a week in your potted plants. You can also put some on the potting soil when you notice that your indoor or outdoor green plant is starting to wilt and be in poor condition.
Even more effective than compost for taking care of plants, it will give your shrubs, cacti, flowering plants (white flowers, etc.) and potted plants a good boost. This is ideal when a plant dies visibly and you don’t know how to react! You can also water them with a water enriched with banana peel to give them a little strength. With a few clay balls at the bottom of the pot, they will benefit fully and for a long time while benefiting from good drainage. Friend gardener, you no longer need products bought in garden centers to display lush vegetation in your small interior!
