green smoothie “tea” for your plants

By Robyn Openshaw | Jun 05, 2009

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:

After 2 years of drinking green smoothies I started just 3 months ago rinsing my blender after making smoothies and pouring mixture into a bucket. Then I refill with water the empty smoothie bottles throughout  the day.

This makes a weak green smoothie that I pour into same bucket and then water my plants.  I  fed a boston fern, an orchid, my roses, a mandevilla  and now my tomato plants. Unbelievable how much faster  all of the plants are growing,   so many more  blooms per bush, tomato plants growing at twice the rate, Boston fern is so thick and green that people think it’s artificial!

Pass this on to your fans, they will be amazed!

Green smoothies are not only good for us, they’re REALLY good for what we eat!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Michael

–Thanks, Michael, fantastic idea I am undertaking TODAY.   I think I’ll do some of the plants and not others, to see if it makes a difference!   –Robyn

    haha this would be great—less to waste and more plants! (I wonder if it depends on what is in the smoothie–would citrus be good for a plant?!!) let us know what happens.

    Victoria Boutenko blends all her kitchen waste and puts it on the garden as “live compost” The worms love it! I have been doing this for quite a while, and it is great. Roses particularly like banana peels.

    I think for house plants the diluted mixture would be better, though…

    I always rinse my blender and put the light green water in a glass for ME to drink! Maybe I’ll share with my plants!

    I wanted to comment that you should be careful with this-I was excited and tried it but I think perhaps the alcohol in the stevia almost killed my $40 plant!?

    And now the comment didn’t come up-what I said was to be a little careful-I was excited and tried this but I think the alcohol (11%) in my stevia damaged my $40 plant!?
