Miracle Plant Food

Post by Crazy Healer Lady » Fri Sep 30, 2005 11:31 pm

I have found the miracle plant food!!!!

I went to a friend's home and was amazed at their aloe plants... Full, healthy, and with about 100 leaves. Not exaggerating, either. He told me his secret: He puts the aloe leaves in a blender with water, adds it to more water, and waters them.
I tried it with my own. I am amazed at how healthy they are after just one dose! I have about 4 new tendrils after one watering, about a week later! And, they don't seem to mind over-watering with this stuff. It's crazy.
Just wanted to share ^^ makes all other plants super healthy, too ^^

Interesting... but I wonder, if you feed a plant back it's own leaves is that self-cannibalism? :-D

Another really great fertilizer for plants is the water from either a betta's bowl or a clawed frogs bowl - when you change the water each week, save the old stuff for the plants.

:lol: everyone says it is cannibalism. I suppose so. :P

That's a good idea about the Betta/frog water!

The real question is, and I know this is going to be bad and punny, but:

Will you end up with Mad Aloe Disease ?

heh heh

hey, it's 3:30 am and I'm still up, lol.

So, wait, when you say "makes all other plants healthy too" do you mean just the aloe mix to any plant or the specific plant mix from the specific plant you are watering? :-k

A trick I learned from my Native American Grandma is to keep a bucket full of broken egg shells (instead of throwing them in the trash) and pour water over the shells, let it soak for an hour or two (she would sometimes soak it overnight) and water you plants with that. The water sucks up the nutrients from the inside of the shell.

I've never actually tried it myself, but I remember Grandma cutting her tomato plants down with an axe.

Ah yes the eggshell trick really works well. We use it. Very good. We also make what my mother affectionately calls "Rose Tea..." meaning horse maneur in a plastic garbage can filled with water sitting for months... The roses (and our garden) LOVE IT!!

And to MettaPax: The aloe mixture to any plant :) Very good!

eggsehlls work, it is similar to having a compost and using that in your posts...so many yummy nutrients.

On a more metaphysyical level, I have heard that rose quartz can help plants grow.

Really, I'll have to try that stone thing. I recently bought a jack pine bonsai kit. I was going to ask for some advice. The instructions on how to grow it suggested letting the seeds soak in water for 24 hours and then putting them in the fridge for 7 days... something about "cold stratification". Does anyone know what that is? And if you don't have an Aloe plant, how would you make this miracle leaf grow stuff? Thanks...

Just as some seeds won't grow unless exposed to extreme heat (such as after a forest fire), some won't grow except when exposed to cold. It's a strange thing Mother Earth has done :-)

Well, let's see... I suppose any juicy, mild plant can be used. Roses and rose leaves, perhaps? GRASS!!! YES! that hasn't been exposed to chemicals. Say, if you grew barley. Barley juice! If you look at the wonders it does for us, what would it do, diluted, to plants??

Thanks, I will give that a try... Perhaps I'll try some of the "wheat" weeds that grow everywhere in Calgary... :lol:

Different thing. Here, wheat is so common that we actually have wheat that grows out the sidewalks and grassy type places. It's a lot smaller than the farmers stuff, but I put that off to being grown in the city under unsupervised conditions...

Wow, that is pretty crazy, I just thought of that because my roommate just found a huge marijuana plant in his Mom

I am now gettingmemories of driving through calgary and seeing tall yellow grass on the side of the road and my grandma saying, "look, saskatchewan in thirty seconds."
