The Magic Potion: How to Prepare & Use

Boiling Method: Soak potato peelings in boiling water for at least 4 hours. Strain the cooled liquid and use it to water the soil or spray directly onto the plant.

Cooking Method: Peel and chop 3 to 6 potatoes. Boil the peels in a liter of water for 15 minutes. After cooling and straining, water your orchids bi-weekly with this mixture. Store leftover fertilizer in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
