Great for hydroponic and organic gardening, this natural plant food can be diluted in water, (5-10ml of powder) to elevate the plants' in-built resistance to pests and disease, as well as increase growth rates and productivity; ensuring a healthy and fruitful crop.
Use every two or four weeks to protect and improve your plants.
The constant presence of Chitin, a naturally occurring molecule that is found in the shells of crustaceans like lobsters and crabs, as well as the exoskeletons of insects, benefits your plants as it causes them to be fortified from their cell walls, outwards. As an eco-friendly fertiliser it also makes the plant resistant to powdery mildew, late and early blights, botrytis, and certain root rots as well as root nematodes. The presence of chitin triggers plants into thinking that insects are eating them, causing them to build up their cell walls and release natural insect toxins as a defence.
REMEMBER: When using mealworm frass in hydroponic gardening, always approach it cautiously and adjust incrementally. Monitor your plants closely and be prepared to change your nutrient solution as needed.
In hydroponic gardening, mealworm frass can be a supplemental source of nutrients and beneficial microbes. However, it's important to remember that hydroponic systems rely on a carefully balanced nutrient solution, so it's essential to ensure that the frass doesn't disrupt the nutrient balance. Here are some steps to follow when using mealworm frass in a hydroponic system:
Please note: only make as much as you will use as the diluted mix does lose its effectiveness after a few days.
The fine sand-like texture makes it easy to mix with your soil.
It has no odour nor attract insects. It does the opposite.
Great Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium concentration.
Frass activate plant defence responses and stress tolerance.
Manually sifted, our Insect frass powder delivers a source of slow-release nutrition, beneficial microorganisms and potent growth stimulants, all in one.
Naturally produced Chitin triggers the immune systems of plants causing them to rev up and defend themselves against predators like root-feeding nematodes and disease pathogens in the soil.
