If you want to grow healthy and beautiful plants, you will definitely need the help of fertilizers. You cannot avoid fertilization in growing flowers, because fertilizers can provide nutrients to flowers and plants to make them grow vigorously.
However, many people can’t stand the smell of fertilizer and find it too unpleasant, and some people are even allergic to this smell. In fact, this kind of odor can be avoided. Here’s how to get rid of fertilizer smell.
1. Shimi vinegar
When we fertilize flowers, we can add a few drops of rice vinegar to the fertilizer liquid to help eliminate the odor of liquid fertilizer, because rice vinegar is weakly acidic and can neutralize the smell produced by some corrupt substances in the liquid fertilizer.
2. Use orange peel
You can add some orange peels (fresh or air-dried) to the fertilizer water that is in the fermentation stage, and let the orange peels and fertilizers ferment together. Orange peel contains a lot of essential oils, which we can use to reduce the odor of liquid fertilizer, and orange peel is also a good flower-growing fertilizer after fermentation.
3. Shi Baijiu
Flower farmers often put a sentence on their lips: “The smell of fertilizer and water in a pot is strong, and the smell of white wine is extinguished.” This catchy saying is very reasonable. Add some white wine to the fertilizer properly, you can obviously feel the odor dissipate. In addition, flower lovers can also make some odorless fertilizers at home.
4. Use Bean Cake
Crush the bean cake to make it completely powdery. After soaking and fermenting, it is a good organic fertilizer, and there is no peculiar smell during the application process.
5. Use crushed bone fertilizer
Some more experienced flower farmers will leave the chicken and duck bones after eating as flower fertilizer. The specific usage is as follows:
First soak the bones of the clean meat for a day or two to remove the salt, then add water in a pressure cooker to simmer, stir into a paste and take it out, then add 20% fine sand or cinder ash into it.
After evenly stirring, cover the contents with a layer of dry fine soil, sprinkle some pesticides, and then cover them to keep them loose and moist. A little smelly.
6. Use composting
All kinds of vegetable and fruit waste that we usually eat can also be used to make fertilizer, such as vegetable leaves and peels. We can collect these vegetable and fruit wastes and put them in a small tank, and then add an appropriate amount of black alum and water to allow it to fully ferment and decompose. Leave the lid open for a few days.
This homemade fertilizer has no odor at all, and is especially suitable for the growth needs of common potted flowers such as rhododendron, gardenia, jasmine and other flowers.
7. Use yogurt water, eggshell fertilizer
Yogurt water is the bottle washing water left by rinsing the yogurt bottle (box) with rice water, mixing it with broken eggshells and placing it for 7 to 10 days, and it will become a kind of flower fertilizer with complete nutrients. Flower fertilizer is highly efficient and has no odor.
