Watering Flowers with Boiled Corn Water
Corn is a kind of common food in life, and corn is also a food we often eat, which has fine effects on the body. Corn has always been known as a longevity food, rich in protein, fat, vitamins, trace elements, cellulose, etc., and has great potential for developing foods with high nutrition and high biological functions.
Do you know? Boiled corn water same as rice washing water can be used to water flowers. Boiled corn water contains a lot of starch, and sugar will be lost into the water during the boiling process. This kind of water has certain nutrients after fermentation, which is beneficial to the growth of flowers and plants, making plants grow green branches and leaves and more lush.
However, watering flowers with boiled corn water must be fermented, and fresh boiled corn water cannot be used directly, otherwise it will attract a large number of small flying insects. The boiled corn water contains starch and sugar, which is rich in nutrients. If it is not fermented to water the flowers, the starch and sugar in the boiled corn water will be fermented directly in the flower pot, which will generate heat and burn the roots of the flowers and plants.
So how to water flowers with boiled corn water?
First of all, we wait for the cooked corn water to cool down and put it into a bottle to seal it, and then put the bottle filled with corn water in the sun for about a week to ferment. But this kind of fermented things will have a little smell. If you find it unpleasant, you can throw some orange peels or grapefruit peels into the bottle when bottling. After the fermentation is complete, the smell will be much lighter. If you need to use this self-made liquid fertilizer, just pour it out and mix it with a little water before watering the flowers, so that you don't have to worry about burning the roots after dilution, and we have always been particular about applying thin fertilizer and more fertilizer. It never hurts to be a little careful.
Secondly, do not use the boiled corn water to water flowers, if it has been placed for a long time. Not to mention the peculiar smell, it will also breed a lot of bacteria, which is easy to infect the roots of the plants.
Finally, remember to water the flowers with boiled corn water twice a week, not every day.
