Sugar in plants

Do you want to know how to make your plants grow healthy and lush , and at the same time make them shiny? Well, you should know that there is an ingredient that you can add to the soil to make the leaves of your plants shiny and salty.

This is an ingredient that you must add to water, an essential element for plant growth, because without it photosynthesis could not occur. The latter is possible thanks to the combination of water, soil and air, a process that produces an essential nutrient for the plant, sugar.

Sometimes, however, it is not enough, so it would be enough to make this process more effective to make the plants grow faster and keep them healthy . So, how to do it? Let’s find out how to use sugar to have healthy and shiny leaves!

Fertilizer with sugar for healthy plants

Adding a little sugar to the water you water your plants helps them grow faster. Obviously you need to use a moderate amount and you shouldn’t exceed it, so you need to be careful and respect the recommended doses.

Sugar is a valid aid for ensuring nourishment for plants and significantly increasing their well-being. In a short time the plants will reinvigorate and find new vitality. Furthermore, the leaves will be shinier and turgid, and this aspect shows that they are strong and healthy.

How to prepare the mixture with sugar

Preparing the mixture with sugar is simple, you just need 4 cups of water and a cup of sugar. Here is the procedure for making a natural fertilizer with this ingredient to reinvigorate plants:

  • Pour 4 cups of tap water into a pot;
  • Place the pan on the stove and heat over medium-high heat;
  • Bring the water to a boil;
  • Place the cup of granulated sugar in the boiling water;
  • Turn off the heat and mix the mixture with a spoon.

Continue stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. After the mixture has cooled, place it in a watering can . Use the solution every three days by watering the plants , and on the other two days water with plain water.

Drinks to fertilize plants

In addition to the sugar method of fertilizing plants and making them stronger and healthier, there are other methods based on drinks that we commonly drink. One of these is Gatorade , whose ingredients also include sugar, which is why it is effective for growing plants.

Among the varieties present that indicate sugar we find sucrose, fructose and corn syrup. However, Gatorade is absorbed more slowly by plants than plain water , but this also varies depending on the soil.

If plants show signs of infestation, spraying sugar water helps eliminate them. Sugary water is also perfect for plants that are yellowish, even almost wilted, and the solution will reinvigorate them in a short time, making their leaves bright and shiny.

As we have seen, with sugar it is easy to create a natural solution to use as fertilizer to make the leaves of your plants a spectacle!
