Strong and fast growing orchids? Use the potato trick!

What is the best natural fertilizer to use?

An organic fertilizer that can be used without danger is potato.

With the potato we will be able to grow shiny and healthy leaves.

Using this tuber as a fertilizer is ideal as we can find potassium and calcium in potatoes. In fact, as we know, these substances are useful for the development and growth of our plant.

Precisely for this reason the potato will stimulate the roots to grow healthy and strong.

How should you use the potato?

First you need to wash and clean the potato properly. Subsequently, without removing the peel, cut it into 4 wedges of 20 grams each. It is important to remember that for this “recipe” only 20 grams of potatoes should be used for 1 liter of water.

After that we take our piece of potato in a blender along with water. We let the appliance work until we obtain a substance similar to a puree.

Once the right consistency is obtained, place a cloth on a bowl. At this point we begin to pour the puree we have obtained. By doing so we will filter the compound we have just made well.

We then transfer the liquid obtained into a clean spray bottle. We are now ready to water our beautiful orchid.

What are the benefits of our homemade fertilizer?

We spray our homemade fertilizer on the leaves. In this way we will give mineral salts that will help the plant grow strong and healthy and also very quickly. This special potato juice will help the plant and its roots to live for a long time.

However, to get the best out of this technique, it will be enough to simply do 2 or 3 waterings within a month.

You will see that by doing this our liquid solution will stimulate the growth of the shoots. In this way we will see shiny leaves grow. In addition to this, the leaves will be able to live much longer.

This recipe, which can be made in five minutes, will repel insects and prevent diseases that usually affect our houseplant.

Now there’s nothing left to do but try our hand at this magic.

Good job everyone!
