Homemade Organic Fertilizer recipe for bonsai trees has a distinct advantage, as you know what is in it and you can control what it gets and when. In this video, I shall show you how to make organic fertilizer at home. This particular recipe while excellent for Bonsai trees is just as good for House-plants and Vegetables as I use it in my allotment too great results.
The base for the organic fertilizer that I use is rapeseed mulch. With it, I use a seaweed meal or seaweed mulch which is again quite easily available. I use one liter of neem mulch. Neem is an Indian tree and I use the dried leaves from it. Finally I use molasses.
The formula for the mix that I use is five liters rapeseed mulch, 5 liters of seaweed meal and one liter of neem mulch and 500 milliliters or half a liter of molasses.
Once you’ve got these together, put it into a blending pot. Blend it thoroughly with some water. While blending it, you make it into a paste that is like a runny dough. You mix just enough water to get it to that consistency and once it’s totally blended, you keep it in a warm room so that the sugars are released within the mixture.
Once, after about two to three weeks, when you can really smell it quite pointedly, it’s time to tray it up or put it onto flat trays. I would put it about one and a half centimeters deep and let the fertilizer become dry a bit and then slice it using a sharp knife or whatever device you have on hand and then the final step is to dry it in the Sun
Once that’s dried, you can break it up into cubes and you’re ready now to use the organic fertilizer that you made. homemade organic fertilizer
