Bio-Dünger: Vorteile für Zimmerpflanzen und den Garten - FARBIO® - Nachhaltige Bio-Flüssigdünger aus Hamburg

Every plant lover is often faced with the decision at some point about which fertilizer they want to use for their green favorites. The variety of fertilizers is almost as large as that of plants: artificial or natural? How do you decide on the best fertilizer? We explain the advantages of organic fertilizers to you here!

Plants need nutrients

Regular fertilization is essential for the health and growth of your plant because fertilizer provides it with nutrients. Due to the continuous absorption of substances through the roots of a plant, they are eventually used up in the soil. The first fertilization usually has to be carried out 4 weeks after repotting in order to support the constant development of your plant. You have to fertilize your hydroponics particularly often because, unlike in the soil, there are no nutrients there.

This is how you can differentiate between fertilizers

A basic distinction is made between organic and mineral fertilizers. Organic fertilizers arise naturally and have a plant or animal origin. You require less energy and resources in production. The production of mineral fertilizers is artificial and uses so many resources. The nutrients are in the form of salts, which can be problematic for our environment.

Why should you use organic fertilizer?

Compared to artificial fertilizers, natural fertilizers promote the maintenance of healthy soils, prevent contamination of our groundwater and are not harmful to the environment, animals and people. Almost all organic fertilizers are also organic, i.e. natural fertilizers. Because mineral fertilizers and the organic guidelines are hardly compatible with each other. Natural fertilizers are therefore effective and sustainable plant care. An organic fertilizer is always free of genetic engineering and radiation, synthetic pesticides and environmentally harmful chemicals. In addition, the extraction of resources must be environmentally friendly and all processes along the value chain must be socially acceptable.

Fertilize organically: green plants, tomatoes, etc.

On average, organic fertilizers release nutrients more slowly than conventional fertilizers and thus provide the plants with long-term nutrients. With organic fertilizers you can prevent over-fertilization, but the effectiveness is not lost. If you use organic fertilizer instead of mineral fertilizer, you can safely consume herbs, fruits or vegetables from your own garden because no residue is left on the leaves, fruits or vegetables.

How often should you use organic fertilizer?

Applying it is simple - simply dilute the organic fertilizer with water. Heavy feeders need more of the essential nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, which is why you should fertilize them more often. It is recommended to fertilize twice a month from March to October and once a month from November to February.

In contrast to conventional chemical active ingredients, organic liquid fertilizers do not contain any synthetic or artificial ingredients, but are based on natural and organic raw materials.

One of the advantages of organic liquid fertilizers is that they protect the soil and promote its biological activity and microorganisms. They leave no harmful residues in the soil and beds. Using organic fertilizer can also help your plants become more resistant to pests and diseases - by naturally strengthening the soil.
