What are the benefits of using Oyster Shell Flour in my garden?
Oyster Shell Flour can act as a liming agent for the soil, providing pH buffering, improving soil tilth, promoting favorable conditions for microbial activity, stimulating enzyme activity, increasing Cationic Exchange Capacity (CEC), and boosting the plant's immune system. It also offers a slow-release calcium source, which helps increase the structural integrity of plants, promote new growth, and increase resistance to diseases.
How does the slow-release calcium in Oyster Shell Flour benefit my plants?
Slow-release calcium from Oyster Shell Flour is utilised by plants to facilitate the movement of heavy macro-molecules around plants. This helps increase the structural integrity, promote new growth, and increase resistance to disease.
What is the role of Chitin in Oyster Shell Flour and its benefits?
Chitin, which is present in Oyster Shell Flour, is beneficial to the plant's immune system. When it is converted into chitosan by an enzyme released from the plant called chitanase, it helps enhance the plant's natural defense mechanisms against diseases.
Can I use Oyster Shell Flour for both indoor and outdoor plants?
Yes, Oyster Shell Flour can be used as a soil amendment for both indoor and outdoor plants. It provides numerous benefits to improve the overall health of the plants and the soil they grow in.
Is Oyster Shell Flour safe to use around pets and children?
Oyster Shell Flour is a natural product and is safe to use around pets and children. However, due to the fine grain size, it is recommended to be careful when handling it and consider wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
How do I apply Oyster Shell Flour to my existing soil mix?
To use Oyster Shell Flour as a soil amendment, apply 1 cup of the product per 30L of base mix that is already in a 1:1:1 ratio. Be sure to mix it thoroughly for even distribution and optimal benefits.
