We all know that being on top of all your commitments, responsibilities, and daily tasks is hard enough work. Add in the need to water and care for your houseplants on top of the 101 other things you need to do, and it's bound to slip your mind every once in a while. 

Don't feel too guilty just yet though, because this magic cure will help bring your plants back to life in no time! The cure is all natural and so simple to make, you'll wonder how you'd never heard of it before now.

All you need to make the concoction is a banana peel, coffee residue from your morning cuppa joe, and egg shells. So basically, everything you would normally throw away after having your morning omelette, banana, and coffee! 

Here's What You Need To Do:

1- Put the egg shells, damp coffee residue, and banana peel into your blender.

2- Add in half a cup of water, then proceed to blend between one and three minutes depending on how powerful your blender is. 

3- the resulting mix should have the same consistency of a watered down smoothie. Feel free to add a little more water and blend away to get the consistency required. 

4- Add the fertilizer into your watering can, along with some extra water to make it more easily pourable, then water your plant as normal! 

Why It Works

Ground eggshells are naturally rich in calcium carbonate, an essential micronutrient that helps build the plant's "bones", or cell walls. On the other hand, the nitrogen found in brewed coffee grounds are excellent for reviving the stems and leaves of your plant, making them stronger and greener than ever! 

While the former two ingredients are commonly used to fertilize plants, banana peels are a little more obscure- but are in no way less vital to the mix! While the eggshells and coffee grounds work on strengthening the plant itself, the banana peel's slow release of potassium, as well as some nitrogen, magnesium, and phosphorus helps bump the soil's nutritional content. This makes it more energizing for the plant on the long run!
