Hello Friends! Today we will make a cocktail solution as
a foliar spray for instantly energizing our growing plants. This not only make your plant grow faster,
but also produces loads of flowering and fruiting. And everything you see in the video are based
on scientific concepts and research. The main advantage of this magic foliar spray
is that its independent of your soil ph. All that is coming up. If you are interested in Gardening, please
subscribe to my channel with the bell icon clicked. Well, before I show you the actual recipe
or the Formula for the making of our so called magic solution, you must know some Basic concepts. Please do not skip these 5 points am gonna
discuss now. Will try to make it as short and as simple
as possible, specially for beginners. 1. What do you mean by foliar Spray?Foliage means
leaves! So the term foliar spray says it all, that
is Spraying a liquid fertilizer on your plants foliage which aids in absorption of certain
essential elements like calcium, magnesium through their stomata. Stomata are pores found in the epidermis of
leaves which help in nutrient absorption and also gas exchange. 2. Next Point is about Calcium and Its importance:
Calcium is the most important component of a plants cell wall. Hence for cell division and growth its indispensable,
especially in rapid growers like tomatoes. So we will keep this point in mind and add
calcium into our mix. 3. Next Point is about Magnesium and Its importance:
Did you know Magnesium is the central atom in between four nitrogen atoms in the chlorophyll
molecule. For beginners, Chlorophyll is the pigment
present in leaves which is essential for photosynthesis, that is plant food production. So we will keep this point in mind and add
magnesium into our mix using our famous organic Epsom salt. 4. Soil PH concept: We have discussed in detail
about the importance of soil ph in nutrient absorption in my video titled Ideal Soil PH
for plants. You can check that from the end screen link
at the end of this video and also in description. Well! when it comes to foliar spray of fertilizer
solution, its completely independent of the soil PH, because nutrients are absorbed through
leaves. So you can utilize this concept if your plants
are not performing well despite all your efforts, care, fertilizing, watering promptly and what
not! Many viewers keep asking the same question. So why not make it a habit of alternating
your feeds, that is fertilizing your plants once in 15 days with foliar spray to feed
your plants. Because this idea is independent of soil PH
value. 5. And last concept: Many Experts recommend applying
egg shells andcalcium tablets to soil and some evenmake a smoothie juice or paste using
all kitchen waste like banana peels, fruit peels and what not. This in perhaps unscientific according to
me to directly apply to your plants. I do not know! If you have any scientific explanation to
this, please do write in the comment box. What I feel is why not utilize this idea of
making this smoothie and keeping a dedicated heavy duty blender or mixer for this purpose
for faster composting. Yes! if you are adding this paste to your
compost bin and feeding your earth worms, this can accelerate composting process. Well, Now moving on to the Formula or the
recipe of this Magic Fertilizer liquid. I will quickly list out the ingredients one
by one and quickly explain the benefit of each of these components. 1. Water: Nothing to explain about this universal
solvent. We will formulate this recipe for 1 liter
of water. 2. Milk: You can use skimmed milk or if available
Raw milk is best. You can even use spoilt milk, butter milk
or stuff like that. Use it with lower than 20 percent dilution
in water that is 1:5 dilution. So you can add about 100 ml or 200 ml milk
to our universal solvent. Milk is not only a source of calcium, but
also an antifungal for treatment of powdery mildew and blossom end rot disease on tomato
and other vegetable plants. It also kills many plant viruses like tobacco
mosaic virus. In place if milk you can add 1 liter of a
special water. Yes that’s special calcium rich water for
plants. It s nothing but the left over water after
you hard boil few eggs. The egg shells release a lot of calcium into
this water during boiling. 3. Epsom Salt that is magnesium sulfate which
is a greatest source of magnesium and sulfur. This is easily available at a gardening store
or at your local pharmacist and even online. So the dosage is max 5 gms or little lesser
than a teaspoon per 1 liter of water. 4. Then the Most important ingredient for adding
the major NPK elements into the foliar spray is COMPOST TEA. So, how do you make compost tea? Its really simple. Just Add a handful of decomposed manure or
compost like cowdung powder or vermicompost per liter of water. You can make your own quantity of 2 liters
or 5 liters depending on your garden size. Allow this to brew for atleast 1 week. Make sure you stir this atleast once every
24 hours to oxygenate this mix till 1 week. Then strain out the liquid using a cloth and
use this liquid. I shall make a detailed video some other time
on how to use some simple gadgets like an aquarium air pump to quickly make your compost
tea. Well, For now, Once the compost tea is ready,
you should dilute this like 1:5 in water and then add about 1 liter to the above solution. Normally if you are using only the compost
tea as a foliar spray, you need to use 1:10 dilution. But here we are making a 2.1 liter solution
in total. I Hope you got my point! That is it, mix it thoroughly and load the
spray bottle or use your electric sprayer or whatever and foliar feed your plants. Spray very early in the morning or late in
the evening because leaf stomatas are well opened at this period so that absorption happens
at its best. So, there we have it folks, Please click a
