Using Colloidal Silver on Your House and Garden Plants

I’m frequently asked what’s the best way to use colloidal silver on one’s house and garden plants.

Truth be told, it’s very simple. You can add small amounts of a diluted colloidal silver solution to the root system, to help nourish the plant and prevent root rot.

Or you can spray a diluted colloidal silver solution on the leaves and flowers – particularly if there’s a problem with plant blight or aphid infestation.

Colloidal silver sprayed onto tomato plants gets rid of tomato fungus, fast. And it’s a sure-fire cure for just about any bacterial, viral or fungal attack on plants.

Here’s the straight scoop…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge

In his book, Colloidal Silver: the Hidden Truths, Dr. Keith F. Courtenay (U.L.C., USA) points out that colloidal silver is known to heal bacterial, viral and fungal attacks on plants. He states:

“For all bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants, flowers and fruit, simply spray diluted colloidal silver on the leaves; also, add to water, mixing one tablespoon per liter.

I put silver in my hydroponic system to eradicate root rot. A friend of mine grows very rare orchids; these are sold overseas for a large amount of money. He was getting a fungus growing on some of them and they became worthless.

We came up with the idea that the silver might eradicate the fungus, as it does on humans and animals. So why not give it a try?

It worked and he is a very happy man. He has now put a spray system in and all his flowers are sprayed at regular intervals and have never had any trouble since.”

In her great article, Using Colloidal Silver for Healthier Fruits and Vegetables, natural health and wellness author Angela Kaelin wrote:

“Whether you have a small family garden, or a larger operation, spraying colloidal silver onto your plants and on the soil around your plants is a highly economical way to keep them healthy and pathogen-free.

Only very small amounts of colloidal silver need to be used. If you purchase colloidal silver at health food stores or through online sources in high concentrations, ranging from 20 ppm to 500 ppm or more, you’ll generally save money and you can dilute it with distilled water to 5 ppm for use on your plants.

Better still, by purchasing an inexpensive home colloidal silver generator you can make your own high-quality colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart. This means you can use generous amounts of colloidal silver when necessary, or cover larger crop areas, and you’ll never have to worry about affordability.

Use a simple plastic plant mister available at any Wal-Mart or local gardening outlet to lightly mist all of your garden plants with the diluted colloidal silver. (Don’t use plant misters with metal canisters, as the silver will fall out of suspension in solution and adhere to the sides of the canister.)

If your plants are experiencing infections of any kind, spray the affected area thoroughly. Multiple applications are safe.

Spraying silver on tomatoes can reverse blight after just one treatment. More severe cases of infection may require daily spraying until the problem is alleviated. Spray the plants when you first notice signs of damage.

If you’re into sprouting, you can also dramatically reduce mold growth in sprouts by using colloidal silver diluted to 5 ppm in your sprouting tray when you prepare your seeds, either for planting or for eating in soups, salads and other recipes.

Don’t forget to spray your indoor house plants, culinary and medicinal herbs, as well. This not only improves the health of the plants, but it reduces bacteria and fungi that can cause indoor allergies.

In the garden, be sure to mist lightly with colloidal silver around the soil of your plants, too. You can do so several times a week if you like. This way, the tiny silver particles enter the soil and are absorbed by the plants, making them healthier and hardier, and better able to withstand any onslaught from fungal, bacterial or viral pathogens.

Just don’t saturate the soil with silver, as that could cause a die-off among the many kinds of beneficial microbes that continuously turn organic materials into compost. A little bit of silver misted lightly over the topsoil won’t hurt, and will provide many added benefits to your plants.

Organic gardening is a great way to get your entire family involved in a fun activity while learning greater self-reliance. And using colloidal silver in your garden helps make your efforts more successful and productive and your home-grown foods significantly safer than store-bought foods.”
