What plants that are healthy and grow fast but dont want to spend lots of money for most organic fertilizers and dont want to harm your plants using cheaper inorganic fertilizers this is the project for you

Step 1: So What Is This Fertilizer?

This is a fertilizer that organic and made from stuff found in the house or are usually just thrown away and are used to make a cheap quality liquid fertilizer/

Step 2: Why Is It So Weird?

the fertilizer is a little weird because one of the main ingredients is human urine yes you read write pee. you probably think this is gross but it really is not its actually a very good source of many nutrients that your plants need because as your body filters out excess nutrients this is where those nutrients end up in your toilet bowl so why not use it. before you say it is not healthy to dumb urine in your plants its actually not true, you see urine when it leaves your body us actually sterile unless you are sick but as long as you are healthy your urine is very clean.

Step 3: What Is in the Fertilizer and What You Need to Make It

looks at the notes on photos for materials

Step 4: Add Water

Step 5: The Egg Shells

Step 6: The Banana Peels

  • chop banana peels this helps the nutrients leave the peels and go into the water
  • once the peels are chopped add them to the water

Step 7: Add Molasses

Step 8: Add Urine

Step 9: Let Sit for 24 Hours

Step 10: Ready to Use

  • after 24 hours fill your water can and water your plants with the fertilizer
  • watch your plants grow

Step 11: Thanks for Viewing

  • if you like this leave me a comment i like reading peoples comments
  • let me know how your plants like the fertilizer.

<p>Keep in mind that it isn't organic unless your food/liquid intake is organic. rflowers2 is also correct in that any medications (or supplements for that matter) will be in your urine.</p><p>Human waste has been used for fertilizers for thousands of years, all over the globe. It is only that modern fertilizers have become cheaper than composted ones that we've strayed away from humanure. </p><p>I like your recipe. I think that it would be interesting to see if one person produces &quot;better&quot; fertilizer than another, all other factors being equal.</p>
<p>true about the medication that is why i mention using fresh urine from healthy people and it is organic because it is not a inorganic fertilizer it is made from natural products how organic the food you eat does not matter what matters is the nutrients and as for the salt it can cause problems eventually but it so does using inorganic fertilizers because they are using lots of salt in them and will cause more damage than this becasue it will not only add salt it will also not feed the soil like this does instead it only feeds the plants but kills them over time so in the long run this is still better than using inorganic plus urine has been used for many years for fertilizing so it is a viable option </p>
<p>If not eating organic wasn't a requirement for organic waste products, then all cow manure would be considered organic. It isn't. That's due to what goes in, must come out. If your food contains pesticides, your waste will contain them (or broken down ones if your liver has anything to say about it). Unless the animal's diet is purely organic for a certain amount of time (I can't find it off hand. My google-fu is weak today), it can't be classified as organic. </p><p>If you are the animal that eats purely organic, then your waste would be organic. </p><p>Now, if you aren't conforming to the USDA's definition of organic and are instead using the definition of organic being a naturally derived product, then yes, it is organic.</p><p>I apologize if my statements sound harsh or if they are attacking in any way. That isn't my intent. I'm just trying to clarify my previous statement.</p>
<p>Thanks. I regularly pee in my garden but never in one spot for more than a day. Sounds &quot;weird&quot; to most folks but it's catching on. Your formula has a lot of what plants need so I'm conducting test (with controls) on a few um, &quot;special plants&quot; in the garden this summer to see if there's a difference in budding.. </p>
<p>I'm NOT keeping those plants!</p>
<p>im confused by the comment?</p>
<p>Sorry, but you are wrong. Human urin contains a lot of salt. Salt is not a good thing for your plants.</p>
<p>true but this is still a better option than inorganic fertilizers that also contain lots of salt</p>
I think you'll probably find diluted comfrey tea is a better option. Harvest comfrey and place in a bucket, fill with fresh water, place a lid on it and leave for at least a month (stir it once a week if you're brave enough as it smells!). When the tea is 'brewed' strain off and dilute well, it's strong stuff! Place the remaining sludge onto your compost heap, and water the diluted tea around your plants. It's a good fertilizer and has no salt build up in the soil.
I just pee on my plants! :P
Do be aware that if you don't dilute the final product enough you can scorch and kill your plants. Also, any medication you may be taking will filter through to your plants ... urine, however much you dilute it, can build up salts in your soil/compost. Just a word of warning, ok. :-)
<p>although the salt level is pretty low and the fertilizer recipe has enough water in it t dilute it enough from what i have found </p>
Cool Instructable, I always like to have my waste go through a few extra steps, which is why I like the use of worm processing towers, black soldier fly processing bins, and biogas fermenters! Then you can add these leftovers to your compost piles. These each make slightly different products depending on your goal, but you can add all this stuff to any of those and it'll pass through another biologically active process, imparting more bacteria (hopefully beneficial)!
<p>I always pee on the compost heap.</p>
Brilliant. It is very pricey but my plants also love colloidal precious metals like gold and silver. The one fern i dosed high with gold grew about 3 times as big as the others and looked/felt healthier. The guy that invented the polygraph lie test did a lot of cool stuff with plants like this
It's actually as nature intended, for anyone who thinks it's gross. The best manure for the garden has urine in it too-I'm talking cow etc. Lots of research done on this, and better for the environment I think<br><br>Nice fertilizer. I use urine myself, but I'm too lazy to add the extra ingredients. It's actually laziness that I use urine! Spend a lot of time out in the shed and garden and too lazy to go inside to the toilet, so I use the watering can and it goes on the veggie garden. It works well
<p>Awesome! My partner and I make a tea like this for our plants, but we use dry amendments to get the NPK the urine gives in this one. It really does make super happy plants. :)</p>
