More and more people are deciding to put chemical products aside and start using insecticides and fertilizers of natural origin . The former have proven to be very effective in a short period of time, but can harm the environment if not used properly. However, the natural ones are ideal when, in addition to strengthening our plants, we seek to fertilize the land without damaging it.
One of these products is guano , a natural fertilizer that has the best of both types of products: it is fast and an excellent ally for the garden.
But… what is guano? Guano is nothing more than the excessive accumulation of feces from some animals , such as bats or penguins. If you have ever had it in your hands, you will have been able to feel the intense smell.
Due to its high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus, two of the minerals that plants need most to be able to grow and develop properly, it is by far the best natural fertilizer that we can find. In fact, even before the chemical boom, it was in huge demand.
You can currently find it for sale in any gardening store, both in liquid and powder form (as you can see in the image at the top of the article). Both types will be ideal for your plants, but yes: you should know that even if it is a natural product, you must follow the manufacturer’s recommendations , since an excess of guano could harm your plant. Moreover, as a precaution, you should add a little less than what the container indicates. In this case, with very little you will make your plant look… beautiful, no, the following 😉 .
