Bottled, untreated mineral water.
Rain water, if you don't live in the city or near an incinerator.
Compost Shake, not cow dung!
- Slice of banana and the peel (As thick as your thumb width)
- Slice of tomato (Half of a quartered tomato, 1/8.)
- Mostly white leaf of lettuce (The size of a small plate)
- Slice of cucumber (As thick as your thumb)
- Slice of bread (The end piece, I knew they had a purpose)
- A leveled tea spoon of sugar (The smaller spoon)
- A pinch of salt (One tap of a salt shaker)
- Half skin of an onion (The size of a half dollar)
- Half of one segment from dried garlic core (The center has little tear drop shaped things, use half of one of those)
* Place all of that in a blender with half of a cup of mineral water or spring water, (NOT TAP WATER).
* Blend until all signs of chunks are gone.
* Microwave for 1 min. and let it cool down.
(The microwave part is to kill bacteria, mold spores, remove unwanted pesticides, and to soften up stubborn chunks for the final mixing)
* Blend it again to finish the mixture.
* Place a coffee filter in a small strainer.
* Pour the mixture slowly through the coffee filter, into a clean container.
* Throw away the pulp that remains in the filter.
This mixture is concentrated food. To keep it from fermenting, you have to freeze this. Make them into ice-cubes, then move them separately into zip-lock bags.
When you are ready to use them, place the desired amount in room temperature mineral water. One cup of water per cube.
Allow it to dissolve completely, then spray on your plants, like you are misting them.
Follow up with a water only misting after half an hour of drying, and let the lights stay on for 24 hours the day that you do this.
You should not have to worry about mold and fungus and bacteria. Any mild odors will fade in 24 hours. Ohhhh - Aroma therapy...
