Fungi are one of the microorganisms that can cause the most damage to plants. Its tiny, barely visible spores can be deposited on any plant being, and once it germinates, it will grow and develop in a way that could weaken it so much that its life would be in serious danger.
For this reason, it is very important to use substrates that have very good drainage, but also water only when necessary, avoiding waterlogging. Likewise, it does not hurt to know what home remedies for fungi we can use. So If you want to protect your plants from these microorganisms, write down these tricks.
A very effective and little known remedy to eliminate and / or avoid fungi is aspirin. This medicine that is usually always kept at home can help us a lot when it comes to keeping our plants protected. For it, We only have to dissolve 3 tablets in a liter of lime-free water and pour the solution into a sprayer..
Milk is another of the products that we have at home and that also has anti-fungal properties. So that plants can take advantage of its benefits we have to pour the same amount of milk as water without lime in a sprayer.
We normally use cinnamon to prepare cakes and other desserts, but what would you tell me if I told you that it also prevents the appearance of fungus? And the most interesting thing is that we simply have to pour on the surface of the substrate as if we were adding salt to potatoes that are being fried.
Copper and sulfur
Copper and sulfur are the best ecological fungicides that we can use, either sprinkling directly on the substrateEither diluting two tablespoons of copper or sulfur in one liter of water and pouring the solution into a sprayer. Of course, we have to be careful if we have pets as they could be dangerous for them.
