Fungi are one of the microorganisms that can cause the most damage to plants. Its tiny, barely visible spores can settle on any plant being, and once it germinates, it will grow and develop in ways 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 to water only when necessary, avoiding waterlogging. Likewise, it is worth knowing what home remedies for fungi we can use. So if you want to protect your plants from these microorganisms, point out these tricks .
- 1 aspirin
- 2 milk
- 3 Cinnamon
- 4 Copper and sulfur
A very effective and little known remedy to eliminate and/or avoid fungi is aspirin. This medicine that is usually always at home can help us a lot when it comes to keeping our plants protected. To do this, we only have to dissolve 3 tablets in a liter of water without lime 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 the plants can take advantage of its benefits , we have to put the same amount of milk as water without lime in a sprayer .
Cinnamon is normally used to prepare cakes and other desserts, but what would you say if I told you that it also prevents the appearance of fungi? And the most interesting thing is that we simply have to sprinkle it 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 by sprinkling directly on the substrate , or by diluting two tablespoons of copper or sulfur in a 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.
