You Can Feed Your Plants with Just One Natural Ingredient

When taking care of our plants, we must also remember to feed them regularly, which means enriching the soil with appropriate fertilizers and manures containing essential nutrients absorbed by the plant roots. Luckily, there’s a natural ingredient you likely already have at home that can effectively nourish your plants.

How? Didn’t we mention the ingredient? Apologies for the oversight. Look into your fridge and grab a carrot—that’s the ingredient we were talking about.

How to feed plants with carrots

Preparing fertilizer for carrot plants is not a complex task. Although one might wonder whether it qualifies as a form of vegetarian cannibalism (likely not, unless you’re fertilizing carrot plants with carrots), the process is quite simple.

First, you will need to get these ingredients or objects:

  • a carrot
  • waterfall
  • a container
  • a spray bottle
  • a sieve

Begin by selecting a healthy, large carrot. Cut it into thin slices, leaving the peel as it adds extra nutrients to your fertilizer. Then, thoroughly mash the slices to form a sort of cream.

Transfer the carrot cream to the previously prepared container, adding at least 1 liter of water. Ensure the container can hold this volume of water.

Close the container tightly (it must be airtight) and let it rest in a dark place for at least 24 hours. After this duration, use a sieve or strainer to filter the mixture. Pour the liquid part into a spray bottle for convenient application.

Use the spray bottle to apply this solution to your plants. Then, don’t throw away the filtered part; consider recycling it in your compost. It’s always a good practice to minimize waste.
