Filed under: Videos |

Here I am, this afternoon, knocking together a solution of seaweed fertiliser–for use on my pot plants. SImply take a couple of sheets of Nori sushi seaweed…

  3. I live near the ocean, do you think I can take seeweed from there and then
    dry it and us it instead of the Nori?

  4. Anybody else growing pot plant organic herbs on their balcony? – Here’s a
    little tip on fertilising without manure and at very low cost. It looks
    effective :) What do you do to grow healthy fragrant organic herbs?

  7. Yep. It’s handy to make your own seaweed liquid fertilizer for plants. 😉

  8. Yep. Fortunately, we aren’t all cast out of the same jelly mould. We are
    all unique and individual. We aren’t all carbon copies of each other. My
    own voicebox and neurological wiring are how I am put together. What you
    see is what you get! 😉

  10. Hi. Thanks for the scientific information. I am certainly not an expert on
    either seaweed or algae. I think it may say “sea vegetable” on the packet.
    Not sure. It certainly seems to cheer up the plants, anyway, if made into a
    solution. Thanks for visiting and sharing! 😉

  11. Yes, I have a YouTube friend in Colorado who is growing beautiful
    watercress & edible sweet potato leaves out of his aquarium water. It would
    seem a very good idea to make use of that fish excretion in growing plants.
    Check out Wikipedia on how to grow sweet potato in your aquarium. Lots of
    fun.The small fish will even swim between the roots. Of course, the potato
    should be thoroughly washed clean of any chemicals etc, and not allowed to
    rot in the water. It’s supposed to take up fish wastes. 😉

  12. Well, it seems to refresh them, just like spraying water on your own face
    on a hot day! 😉 Of course, they don’t mind a drink through their roots,

  13. The infamous seaweed recipe,I have not made this mixture but it should be
    OK, in fact if you soak seeds in it you will find increased germination,
    stronger seedlings and old seed can also germinate. Works great for some
    species that are hard to germinate or have dormancy. Only thing is I never
    knew you could make your own until zuditaka told me :)

  14. So confusing! Different people have different voices! Aaarrggghhh! This is
    too much for my pea brain to comprehend! As you’re easily confused, I can’t
    help but be a bit naughty and terrorize you with this: Some women have
    deep, masculine-sounding voices! Muahahahaha!

  15. yes I have a spray bottle, so instead of watering my plant and putting it
    on the dirt I should instead spray the leaf :)

  16. Yep! And if you buy the stuff with an expired use-by date, you’ll get it
    even cheaper. Of course, as people have told me on this page, below
    somewhere, you can get kelp seaweed powder online, even cheaper, and it
    works just as well. Good luck with your plants! And have a good life! lol 😉

  17. Hmm. I’ve been pouring a solution of urine and water around all the trees
    on our estate for nearly 30 years now. I do this every day–even though we
    are nowadays connected to the sewerage system. It would seem to be a very
    good idea to recycle urine as far as is possible. Thanks for taking the
    time to make your very interesting comments! :)

  18. I did something similar to this last year with bladderwrack tea. It did
    not make for a tasty tea in my opinion. My house plants really seemed to
    thrive. I think I will try your method with seaweed sheets. Thanks for the

  19. You do have a point, I think. That paper is baked into sheets to give it
    that consistency and texture. I wouldn’t know how many trace elements would
    be leached out during the cookery, but I imagine any microorganisms would
    be cooked to death. If you want the fresh, real thing, you’d better take a
    big garbage bag and collect dry seeweed on the beach. Even then, though,
    you might have to rinse some of the salt out of it, lest it burn your
    plants. Thanks for your interesting comments, anyway! 😉

  22. North Ronaldsay is a breed of sheep living on North Ronaldsay, northernmost
    of the Orkney Islands, Scotland. Notable for living almost entirely on
    seaweed for several months of the year, except for a short lambing season –
    this is the only forage available to them, as they are confined to
    shoreline by a 6 feet (1.8 m) tall dry-stone wall which encloses the whole
    island. The semi feral flock on North Ronaldsay is confined to the
    foreshore for most of the year to conserve limited grazing inland.

  23. Can i use the seaweed out of the Pacific Ocean

    March 1, 2014 at 10:51 pm

  24. ROOOFL!!

    March 1, 2014 at 11:50 pm

  25. That’s okay.Apparently powdered kelp or seaweed meal is even cheaper. Sold
    as animal feed supplements, I think. Thanks for commenting! 😉
