You'll Need:

  • 1 gallon of water (about 18 1/2 cups of water)
  • 1 tbsp Epsom salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp of Household ammonia


DIY Miracle Grow Ingredients
  1. In a big bucket, mix all ingredients together until well dissolved.
  2. Pour the mixture directly onto soil of plants once a month.
  3. The amount you use will depend on the size of your plant. So for example, a small, indoor plant will only need a cup's worth, while a fruit tree may need the whole bucket!

Why This Works:

The ingredients found in Miracle Grow and other feeds and fertilizers also contain the above ingredients. The only difference though, is that these commercial feeders also contain other unnecessary chemicals and preservatives which your plant does NOT need.

Try using this feed instead of commercial feeds so that your plants will last longer and be healthier. If you're growing edible plants, such as fruits or veggies, this homemade Miracle Grow is also a better alternative as it can then be called organic – free of pesticides, chemicals, and preservatives!
