Nikhila's Top Tips on Growing Healthy Plants

Best Material for plant pots

Clay or the earthen pots are the best material to be used to grow plants. You get fancy painted pots available in the market but these may not be as healthy as the plain simple clay pots as the paint restricts the air circulation to roots. The painted ones are not bad for the plants they still grow and give you yield but plain clay pots are more of a holistic way of growing plants.

Healthy Plants

It is important to know your plants are healthy. It is quite easy to find out if they are not; the leaves droop and the colour of the leaves turns pale yellow. So how do you keep the plants healthy? I have a few very easy steps that you can follow once a week.

Every time you eat a banana, save the banana peel and soak it in water all night. In the morning take the peel out and water plants. This water provides calcium and potassium to the roots.

The second is my favourite. Vegetable peel, you can use onions and garlic see their skins till its handful soak it overnight and use the water in morning for plants. This water will contain magnesium, potassium, nitrates and phosphate required for the plants to grow healthy.

I’ve been following the steps for quite a while now on a glance having healthy thank you is good yield for both stores bought and seeded plants.
