2 years ago I spied a banal top dressing from a neighbor for the growth of seedlings. Now I use it every year and am not overjoyed
Mar 27, 2021
Flaming fireworks, comrades summer residents and gardeners! Today on the agenda is an effective seedling feeding that accelerates photosynthesis and strengthens the roots. It is accessible to everyone, and I was convinced of its effectiveness on my own experience.
How I came to believe in feeding
Acquaintance with the tool began, it seems, a couple of years ago. I went to visit a neighbor and found a woman doing a strange job. She wrapped the tablets in paper and rolled the jar with effort over the bag. "I feed the seedlings!" - reluctantly explained to me Lyudmila, causing me to grin.
But as soon as I looked at her seedlings of peppers and tomatoes on the windowsill, my skepticism dissipated. Vigorous, strong and green plants insolently looked at me, comrades. And this is without a lamp, just on the south window!
I could not help asking the woman about the miracle remedy. It seemed to me that Lyudmila did not want to share the recipe with me. But, since I found Lyudka at the place of feeding, the gardener was cornered and laid out everything to me as if in spirit.
I tried it - I liked it! For 2 years in a row, I notice that feeding does not work miracles, but the plants after it look more fun. And he combed the Internet and found out that there is also a scientific basis for efficiency.
The mechanism of action on seedlings
I'm talking about feeding young plants with succinic acid solution. But it is very important to properly prepare it, this very solution.
Someone may call succinic acid a striking example of the Placebo effect and fooling the population from liar bloggers. But! Many who have tried amber on their indoor flowers are aware of the positive result. Yes, and in the public domain there are quite scientific studies that have proven that:
- Succinic acid is quite considered a root growth stimulant, especially after drying out the soil.
- YaK - accelerates photosynthesis (albeit not much, by about 10-15%), which means that the plant develops faster.
- Due to all this splendor, wheat processed with amber gave more yield. This means that the rest of the plants will benefit.
The main thing is to prepare the potion correctly. And do not abuse the use: do not feed the seedlings more often than once every 3-4 weeks.
How to prepare succinic acid for feeding seedlings
There is a relatively inexpensive, ready-made solution of succinic acid. I use it, because a bubble for 90 rubles is enough for a long time, and I consider My Time the most expensive resource. Use, you guessed it, according to the instructions: 1.5 ml per 1 liter of water, starting from the quivering moment of the appearance of 2 true leaves.
But if you, comrades, have enough time and it has become boring to live, follow Lyudmila's example and prepare the solution yourself. Just please try to do everything right and get the right one. concentration 0.02%.
Given: 1 tablet of succinic acid - 0.1 mg of active ingredient. I have no doubt that each of my readers will easily calculate how many pieces must be dissolved per 1 liter in order to get a solution of 0.02% at the exit. But just in case, I'll tell you: 2 tablets.
Grind them (remember the paper-and-jar neighbor's trick?) And dissolve to the end in a little warm water. So as not to have to interfere until blue in the face. Then pour the resulting substance into 1 liter of water and use for watering the seedlings.
I recommend it to everyone! And I advise you to visit your neighbors more often, especially in the spring. It was interesting? Click, comrade, "Thumbs up"!
