Mix your soil with these beneficial add-ons to improve plant growth

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Aside from regular watering, Tender Loving Care (TLC), and the so called Green Thumb, not that it is true or not (also that Black Thumb terminology), our plants need the best soil there is for it to grow healthy, strong and thriving.

There are several ways to improve your soil but it would be better for your plants to get the most nutrient-filled mix already from the very start. They have the NPK  (Nitrogen - Phosphorus - Potassium) requirements but some plant varieties require more of one or two compared to the other inclusion of other non-essential but highly beneficial add-ons will do amazing wonders for your plants.

Here are some options that I've gathered from gardening supplies and soil mix sellers themselves that you can use to cultivate your growing medium, whether it's a pot or plant bed, or even the land, for the greater benefit of your plant from seed to harvest time:

🍀 COCOPEAT is a multi-purpose growing medium made out of coconut husk. The fibrous coconut husk is pre-washed, machine dried, sieved, and made free from sand and other contaminations such as animal and plant residue. and other contaminations such as animal and plant residue. 

Cocopeat is a very good alternative to traditional peat moss and Rock wool.

🍀 CHICKEN MANURE is the feces of chickens used as an organic fertilizer, especially for soil low in nitrogen. Of all animal manures, it has the highest amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

🍀 HUMUS the organic component of soil, formed by the decomposition of leaves and other plant material by soil microorganisms. Humus is the dark organic matter that forms in soil when dead plant and animal matter decays. Humus has many nutrients that improve the health of the soil, nitrogen being the most important.

🍀 CARBONIZED RICE HULL is made from incomplete or partial burning of rice hull. (Carbonized Rice Hull) is a very good soil fertilizer and conditioner as it contains Phosphorous (P), Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), and micronutrients vital to growing crops.

🍀 RICE HULL are one of the most sustainable soil amendments available to gardeners. When properly applied, they improve soil drainage, water-holding capacity, and aeration. I'm


🍀 FERMENTED SEAWEED is a broad spectrum fertilizer that is rich in beneficial trace minerals and hormones that stimulate plant growth. Seaweed is high in carbohydrates which are essential building blocks in growing plants and low in cellulose so it breaks down readily. Seaweed shares no diseases with land plants.

🍀 VERMICAST also called worm castings, worm humus, worm manure, or worm faeces) is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by earthworms. These castings have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than the organic materials before vermicomposting.

🍀 BEETLECAST is simply an alternative to vermicast since according to the survey, most gardening lovers are women and most of them has fear in the earthworm. Dahil takot sila sa bulate,ayaw na nilang humawak ng lupa. We Experimented the beetle cast o anak ng uang kung saan sila ay nanginginain ng mga nabubulok na dahon ng halaman at kahoy. Lumalabas na masmaganda ang combination ng Nitrogen / Phospurus / Potassium or (NPK) sa dumi ng beetle cast kompara sa Vermicast na nitrogen ang kadalasang nilalaman.

Just remember that a good mix of these, not necessarily all of them, is advisable than just the basic soil that you can dig up at home or the gardening soil you can buy at the nearest gardening supplies shop. Many are already selling various mixes of a few of these and selling them ready for gardening use, but still there are some plants with different needs from other plants. Just like people, we thrive in different conditions, so you have the option to experiment on the right mix for your plants.
