An independent two-year controlled study at the biology greenhouses of the University of Houston discovered that Knox® Unflavoured Gelatine is an ideal source of nitrogen for plants that leads to healthier, fuller, and greener houseplants.
In nature, plants derive nitrogen from decomposing plant and animal matter (compost), and the plants convert the nitrogen into protein, the "building blocks" needed for growth. Since compost is an impractical method of cultivating houseplants, various types of chemically produced inorganic nitrogen is available. However, inorganic nitrogen requires special care in order to avoid the risk of overfeeding and accidental ingestion by children. Organic nitrogen, on the other hand, works on a time release basis. This ensures that even an accidentally large application will not damage the plants, so that overfeeding is virtually impossible.
Knox® Unflavoured Gelatine has been proven as an ideal organic nitrogen source for today's indoor gardener. It is a practical, economical nitrogen source that also meets the criteria for cleanliness, convenience, and safety. Gelatine is a pure protein, packaged and premeasured in a clean, dry form and readily available in most supermarkets and kitchen cupboards.
To have healthier, greener houseplants, simply add 1 pouch of Knox® Unflavoured Gelatine to 1/4 cup (50mL) cold water in a 1 quart (1 litre) pitcher. Allow the gelatine to soften for 1 to 2 minutes, add 1 cup (250 mL) tap water, stir to dissolve, then slowly fill the pitcher with cold water. Now water your plants as you would normally.
Water once a month with all-natural Knox® for greener, healthier, more beautiful plants.
