What is Insect Frass and how does it benefit my plants?

Insect Frass is an organic fertiliser made from the excrement of insects, specifically Meal Worms. It provides a source of Chitin, which is a potent immune modulator for plants. This helps to increase yields, enhance resistance to pathogenic viruses, fungi, and bacteria, and potentially stimulate the production of more terpenes and flavonoids. Furthermore, the Insect Frass offered here contains an impressive 10% Chitosan, which is water-soluble and plant-available, making it highly effective in stimulating your plant's immune system response.

At what stage of growth should I start using Insect Frass on my plants?

It is recommended to begin applying Insect Frass each week from the start of the flowering stage onwards.

How much Insect Frass should I use on my plants?

For early stages of flowering, use 5-10g of Insect Frass per 20L of soil as a top dressing. During the final four weeks of flowering, it is strongly recommended to use at least 10g per 20L of soil to experience its full benefits.

What are the advantages of using Insect Frass during the final weeks of flowering?

In the final four weeks of flowering, using Insect Frass can improve the plant immune system, reduce the chances of mold, stimulate the plant to produce more terpenes and flavonoids, enhance overall yield, stimulate improved soil microbial biology, and help your plants fight off pests and diseases naturally.

Can Insect Frass be used with any type of plant?

Yes, Insect Frass is a versatile organic fertiliser that can be used for various plants, offering benefits for yields and plant health. Always follow the recommended dosage and application instructions to ensure optimal results.
