Why iodine is added to seedlings: a useful trick that few people know about
Farmers are already starting to sow crops for seedlings that have a long germination period. It is important to provide favorable conditions for the development of plants to get a good harvest.
OBOZ.UA has found a useful life hack that will help to cope with this. You only need one natural ingredient to fill the seedlings with nutrients.
Iodine is an important element that is essential for plant development and growth. Just one fertilization is enough to strengthen the crop.
Pour filtered water at room temperature into a three-liter container. Avoid cold water, as this will only harm the plant. Then add two drops of iodine, mix everything thoroughly and water the seedlings.
The next feeding with this solution can be done after the plants are planted in open ground.
If your seedlings have started to wither, don't worry, they can be saved. To do this, you need to make a simple solution.
Mix 50 grams of baker's dry yeast with one tablespoon of sugar. Then add five liters of water and leave it for two days.
During this time, the yeast will begin to ferment and release nitrogen, vitamins, and some other minerals necessary for plants. When the liquid is infused, add another five liters of clean water, mix everything well and you can water the seedlings.
