If yesterday we saw how to make a ecological and homemade insect repellent, today we will tell you how to make a ecological fungicide at home that helps us to fight against the fungi of our planter or garden.
In this case, our ally will be the Horse tail. This plant, with great medicinal properties, will help us fight fungi and some pests such as spider mites or aphids, thanks to its high silica content and a toxic saponin for fungi called equisetonin.We can find this plant in most of our forests or already dry in any herbalist.
We will add 15 grams of horsetail if it is dry, or 100 grams if it is fresh, to a liter of water and we will put it to boil for 15 minutes.
Once it has cooled down, we will drain the water and dilute it 1: 3 (for each part of horsetail preparation, we will put three parts of water) to spray our plants with it.
The smell of this preparation is very pleasant.
