Do It Yourself: Houseplant Fertilizer

Okay so I have this problem, whenever a plant comes into my house there is a veeerrrry big chance that plant is not going to make it. Sad I know.

BUT I have found something that has really worked for me! Well at least prolongs my poor plant’s life 😉

I’m going to share my little tip with you guys! It’s a homemade fertilizer reusing an ingredient right from my kitchen. Which is great cause then it’s free and I’m not wasting anything!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE… duh duh duuuuuuh…!


Okay so here’s how that works…

Whenever I make egg salad or do something with a bunch of eggs and I’ve got all the shells, I’ll throw them in a jar and fill it up with water, screw a lid on and then leave it for a week or two. And then when it’s ready I just use the water and not the egg shells!


You would think it smells after that time but it really doesn’t, I was surprised! .


This basically makes an “egg tea” and it’s got so many good nutrients in there for your plants. I’ve really been impressed by this one and it is for sure my go to if I’ve got some brewing!


Try it out see if works for you and let me know how it goes!
