Feed Jello To Houseplants

Feed Jello to house plants… That is crazy right? Nope! It isn’t! Jello is a wonderful plant fertilizer. Read the science behind why it works!


Why Feed Them?

Let’s start off with the reason why we would feed houseplants anything besides water, let along Jell-o. Houseplants generally have a nitrogen deficiency, thus why we feed them fertilizer.


Science Behind It

Before you read on, I’m giving you fair warning that my explanation could turn a weak stomach a bit. Bail now if you’d like.

Here is where it gets a little gross, but also the science behind it.

Jell-O AND Knox gelatine products both have collagen that was extracted from bones and connective tissues of animals. Gelatin collagen is organic and will break down slowly when feed your plants if used once a month.


How Often?

Once a month is ok.


Does It Gel?

The common common question I get is doesn’t it gel up and get sticky? No. Cause you are diluting the powder almost 5 times more than making JELL-O.


Directions

  • 1.5 oz (half a small box) any flavor JELLO
  • 2 quarts of water

Mix well

Water plants as usual once a month.
