Not to be confused with “bone meal” that is used for flowering due to the contribution of phosphorous.
Blood meal is widely used for the cultivation of foodstuffs, provides a high nitrogen content and has excellent properties. You can buy it at any gardening or agriculture store.
I recommend it only for those who are used to fertilizing since it can generate overfertilization very easily.
- In a bottle filled to 10% of its capacity with flour.
- Fill the rest with water that you will have left to rest for at least 24 hours.
- Mix well and let stand.
- Mix again from time to time and open the lid to let out the gases that are generated.
- Wait a few days until there are no solids in the bottle.
- You mix the contents of the bottle again with standing water, at the rate of 1 part of solution for every 10 parts of water.
With this new double-diluted solution you can now fertilize your plants.
Be careful not to apply it more than 2 times a week. Speaking of fertilizing, it is said that “less is more”. It is always better to have to apply a little several times, and thus make sure not to overfertilize and affect the roots.
