If you like organic fertilizers to make your plants even happier, check out this easy fertilizer based on yeast.

Yeasts are single-celled fungi, they are everywhere in nature and can perform many ecological functions, like breaking down dead plant tissue and encouraging root growth.

Yeast fertilizer can be used for indoor plants, outdoor plants and can be your best friend to grow your tomatoes this summer.

Today, I will talk about how to use the yeast fertilizer for indoor plants and I will also leave some links for how to fertilize your outdoor plants and how to grow tomatoes using this technique.

Bonus: Yeast is also good for compost. Especially if that bin is mostly filled with shredded leaves; yeast is alive with the kinds of organisms that naturally move the composting process along. Mix the yeast into all parts of the pile and make sure that the 'dry browns' in the pile are good and moist.

Grow your plants!

Help your plants grow with Fleischmann's yeast that Amazon reviewers swear by!

Start with one cup of water at room temperature and add one tablespoon of yeast and one teaspoon of sugar.

Mix well and pour on your indoor plants. One cup is good for 4 plants.

You can dilute this fertilizer in a larger amount of water if you're also watering your plants.

Repeat every 2 to 3 weeks.

Do the same for your outdoor plants. Learn more about the yeast fertilizer

    I have plants inside but I have a lot of gnats. I have bought store products and homemade one product thanks Maria

      Maria, the only thing I have found to get rid of the gnats is Mosquito bits soaked in water for at least an hour before watering; 2 table spoons in a gallon of water , let them soak, strain the water into your watering can, water as usual; do this treatment at least twice a week for the first 3 weeks, then every 3 weeks afterwards.
