Sometime last year, we were driving along Sauyo Rd from a project and I noticed houses putting eggshells on their prickly plants. Ok ok, I’m not a landscape specialist but you know what: it got me. I noticed some more of these in normal households and I know my dad uses egg shells to fertilize the soil, not the leaf of the plant.
- I thought it was used for aesthetic purposes because somehow it looks like flowers (from afar.. when you squint at it)
- They said it was to transfer nutrients from the eggshell to the plant
- The eggshells serve as some kind of protector when you’re watering/ tending the plant.
Quite funny but still, I think it’s catching on. Is there a scientific basis for this? Hmmm
Yeah well, you can really use eggshells as a legit fertilizer in crushed/ liquid form mixed in soil.
