Welcome back plants lovers! Perhaps some of you do not know what happens once you pour milk (specially cow’s milk) on plants.
In fact, milk can make plants grow and flourish because of its nutrients and can be used for gardens, orchards, and indoor plants.
Let’s discuss the reasons why we should use it.
Milk can be a very good liquid fertilizer. In fact, we just need to add it to our organic fertilizer. Caution: it is important to remember that expired milk can be safely used.
Disinfect and clean work tools:
If not cleaned properly, our tools can make plants sick through the attack of some pests. What we need to do is very simple: we just need to soak a cotton ball in milk and pass it over to the tools after using them. They will be disinfected to the fullest and we can use them safely.
Milk can become an outstanding natural fertilizer. All we have to do is to pour some into the watering until we get 80% water and the rest milk. However, we need to water the plants with milk once a month, at most two times.
Fungicide gives protection from insects and pests
Milk contains antibacterial and fungicidal properties. In addition to this, it can protect against whiteflies, red spiders, and aphids. In short, it protects the plant naturally.
If we have a plant that has already been attacked by fungi, we must use a mixture containing baking soda and milk. We need to pour 20 grams of baking soda into a spray bottle containing one liter of water and ¼ litter of milk. We shake well so that the baking soda dissolves and then spray it in the darkest areas once a week.
On the other hand, if we want to prevent this problem, we have to pour 10 parts of water into one liter of milk. After that, we have to transfer the result to a spray bottle and wet the stem and leaves. We need to do this once a month and not water the plant during the next 24 hours.
With a plant that needs alkaline soil, we must necessarily use milk. This is important because the calcium in milk reduces the acidity of the soil. It will suffice to pour one tablespoon of milk powder into one liter of milk. Then, we stir and pour the result into the soil.
Leaves need to be cleaned often because of the dirt that inevitably accumulates on them every day. This clogs the pores and the plant struggles to breathe. Therefore, it will be enough to wet a cloth with a little water and wipe it over the leaves. After this operation, you will get bright, clean leaves.
I would say there is nothing left to do but get to work!
