I am by no means a garden expert but I’m sure learning. This past year I have kept more plants alive than all my other years combined though. How? A little research, a little more care, and a few tips and tricks I’m picking up from people with green thumbs. This “How to Make Homemade Miracle Grow” recipe actually comes from my tailor. Every time I go there I get my clothes tailored and leave with a homemade recipe or remedy.
While Miracle Grow works, it is often filled with unnecessary fillers and potentially harmful preservatives for our pets or kids. Also, it can become costly. This Homemade Miracle Grow Recipe, however, is inexpensive, safe for pets, and can be mixed up in seconds. Best of all? It can bring dying plants back to life and make OK plants thrive!

What You Will Need for Homemade Miracle Grow
How to Make Homemade Miracle Grow
1.) Simply mix all the ingredients together in a mug or water gallon
2.) Water as you usually would. (I usually water my indoor plants every week in the summer and every other week in the winter.)
3.) Watch your plants thrive!
How Does this Work?
Let’s talk about each ingredient and why it will help your plants.
Ammonia – Ammonia is an amazing nutrient for plants because it contains both nitrogen and hydrogen.
Epsom Salt – Epsom Salt adds magnesium and sulfur to your plant which helps multiply the nutrients in your soil.
Baking Soda – Baking Soda acts as a fungicide and helps remove any mildew. I know my indoor plants are prone to get mildew so this is a super great trick.
BONUS TIP: Next time you make scrambled eggs, add a few crushed up eggshells to your plants for added calcium.
