15 Best Uses of Coffee Grounds
Is there such a thing as really rejected useless? I do not think so, especially given the wealth of information on how to reuse things of low value. Things that are underestimated by most people, for example, glass, wood, wood pulp, paper, rubber tires used, and in the scope of this article. I think it’s really one man’s trash case that is another man’s treasure. As it turned out, this treasure can be put, in this case, the land of coffee used, in more than one use, in fact, I can list 15 uses at the moment.
1. Pest control
Pest Control – There is currently a meme online that sprinkles coffee used in your plants and will repel mosquito skin, especially those that carry the Zika virus. In fact, there is no scientific literature to prove this, although there is some research evidence that sprinkling coffee and using coffee at mosquito breeding sites inhibits the development of the embryo of mosquito larvae, thus significantly reducing the number of mosquito larvae that mature successfully to adults.
For plants that like acidic soils, such as hydrangea, rhododendron, camellia, roses, blueberries, magnolia trees, etc. The ground coffee used can be used as a source of excellent fertilizer. Some flowers will even change colors depending on the pH level in the surrounding soil, so blue is placed in your hydrangea blossoms, with the reasons coffee used!
3. Carrots and horseradish growth
Carrots and radishes work wonderfully with the coffee used. Previous spraying before planting will help small seedlings grow faster and provide an additional boost when they just germinate, and you will certainly reap larger crops as a result. A literal example to reap what you sow!
4. Growing your mushrooms
Do you like eating mushrooms? It can be quite allergic. Certain types of mushrooms are grown in containers filled with used coffee floors. For example, pearl oyster mushrooms. Grow your shrooms today and become a spore farmer!
