How to prepare fertilizer with onion

Getting an organic fertilizer is easy, just use ingredients that are natural and that you also have on hand. In fact, you don’t have to buy special things, an onion is enough, which you certainly already have at home, and therefore you can use it to obtain an excellent natural fertilizer . Here’s how you do it:

  • Take an onion, remove the peel and cut it into small pieces;
  • Place the chopped onion peels in a glass jar containing 1 liter of water;
  • Close the jar and place it in a cool place for 24 hours covered with a cloth to avoid light;
  • Once the time has passed, take the jar and filter the contents through a strainer, pouring it into a jug.

Use the resulting solution to water your orchids, first placing the plant in a larger container, so that the water can drain out without falling out. Leave the water to act for 25 minutes , then remove it from the container because the excess water will have leaked out . In this way stagnation will not be created and the roots will not rot, so the plant will grow healthy and strong. In the meantime, perform another method to reinvigorate orchids, here’s what it is.

The water and milk method for the leaves

One method to keep orchid leaves healthy and vigorous is to use water and milk. Here’s how you should do it:

  • Put two tablespoons of water in a glass;
  • Add a spoonful of fresh milk without sugar and mix;
  • Take a make-up remover pad and wet it in the solution;
  • Squeeze the disk and pass it delicately over the leaves.

In this way the leaves will become shiny and absorb the nutrients contained in the prepared solution. The effect will be to keep them healthy and green, but the solution is also effective in keeping away insects and parasites that could attack them and generate dangerous infections.

Carefully pass the disk over the top and bottom surfaces. To have more blooms during the year, every 2 or 3 years repot the plant and place it in a larger one, so as to allow the roots to develop better. With this system you will surely get abundant and long-lasting blooms.
