Rooting recipe using lentils!

The goal of this recipe is to ger auxins from sprouting lentils. Auxins are fitohormones that help plants to grow and root. They are located in new roots and are really abundant in lentil roots.

As for the recipe per se:

You'll need:

1 cup of dry lentils (any type will work, just not the canned ones because those are cooked and you need raw ones)
4 cups of water
1 bowl or any other container, preferably one not made from plastic
a blender
a strainer


What to do:

put the lentils on the bowl and add the water. Leave it for 8 hours for them to soak with a cloath covering it from light (remember roots develop on darkness).
Once the 8 hs have passed, strain them. You'll want them to stay a little wet, not completely dry, but not floating in water. Reserve the strained water. Cover them again and wait another 8 hours.
After 8 more hours you need to check them. You might notice that some have already sprouted, but not all. Control the humidity, and if needed add some of the strained water. Cover them again and wait 8 more hours.
Repeat the last step during 3-4 days (checking your lentils every 8 hours, adding more water if needed, always covering them with a cloath), until all your lentils sprout.
Once you have the sprouted lentils put them on the blender along with the strain water. Add a little (just a little) more water if needed and process them until you get a liquid lentil puree.
Strain said puree, separating the liquid part that will be concentrated liquid rooting hormone, and the solid part that will work wonders as fertilizant.


To use you'll need to dilute 1 part of the concentrate in 10 parts of water.

The good thing of this is that you can safely use kitchen equipment since you are working with sprouted lentils and not chemicals, it's safe for pets and insects, and that you can store it in a bottle in your fridge for 15 days (though you'll end up using it faster than that.

To use you can either water the plants that are already planted in pots, or use it in a recipient where you'll put the recent cutting to develop roots.

My bonsais and some of my dying without roots' succulents are the proof that this thing actually works (plus, it's not expensive to try)

Oooh yay thank you

So hey guys, I'm LizardKing! I'm not so much of a gardener but I'm really passionate about beekeeping. If you have any questions about honeybees, I'd love to help you find answers! I've done a few classes, volunteered, was (am?) part of my local beekeeping association, so I have a lot of resources.

My two tips for gardens want to attract bees?
If you want native bees, keep weeds and wildflowers! People buy a lot of highly specified plants to attract butterflies, and I find they assume the same thing for bees. However, native bees (unless they are rarer and more particular, in which case you'd have to do local research) are most easily please with foraging native to their area. You'll find most wildflowers and weeds are natives, and that the bees will love them! My sister keeps a wildflower garden that attracts a fair share of honeybees, but also a nice variety of all sorts of native! (For the record, in the Western Hemisphere, the Apis Mellifera, or the most common honeybee, is invasive. They are important to out agriculture, which is also an invasive species, but bottom line honeybees are not native to North America.)
Leave out water! This method works very well for attracting honeybees, so is great if you're growing produce. Honeybees need to drink, and often times it can actually be hard to find a decent water source. If beekeepers don't leave out a fountain, their girls will end up drinking out of a neighbors pool! Bees are hard workers, and they need water. My aunt has a fountain with flowers growing in it that attracts tons of honeybees. The great thing about having foliage in the fountain is that the bees have something to stand on, so they can't drown. Marbles in a fountain or sticks in a bucket can also be used to give the bees water with safe footing.

You will find runes, runic letters to read...
Do you know how to write them? Do you know how to read them?
Do you know how to paint them? Do you know how to test them?
Do you know how to ask them? Do you know how to bless them?
Do you know how to send them? Do you know how to offer them?
@LizardKing I love bees, do you have any info or tips for someone who would like to have bee boxes someday?
