Make Liquid Fertilizer from Rice Water

The water left over after cooking rice, also known as “rice water,” can be an excellent fertilizer for plants.

It’s a good source of starch and NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium),

which are essential nutrients for plant growth and health.

How to Use Rice Water

When you wash rice, collect the water separately in a container.

This water is rich in starch and can be used to water plants.

The water left over after cooking rice can also be used as rice water.

Just make sure it doesn’t contain any salt.

When watering plants, dilute the rice water with water in a 4:1 ratio.

You can also spray rice water onto the leaves of plants.

This allows the plants to directly absorb the nutrients.
