Coconut-Buttermilk Solution

This easy-to-make solution helps enhance plant growth, repels insects, and increases resistance to fungal diseases. Also, it enhances flowering in plants. This solution has the same growth enhancing potential as that of cytozime/biozyme. (These are trade names).

Ingredients: 5 liters buttermilk, 1 liter tender coconut, 1-2 coconuts, 500ml-1liter juice from waste fruit (or 500 gms 1kg waste fruit, if extracting juice is not easy).


  • break the coconuts and collect the coconut water in a vessel.
  • Add buttermilk to this and mix well.
  • Grate the coconuts, add to the mixture, and let it soak.
  • Or, mix grated coconut and fruit (if not in juice form), put the mixture in a nylon mesh, tie it, and immerse it in the buttermilk solution.
  • This solution ferments well in seven days.
  • The contents of the nylon bag could be reused a few times in subsequent solutions by adding a small quantity of grated coconut every time.

Usage: Mix ten liters water with 300-500 solution and spray. This can also be used in irrigation at the rate of 5-10 liters per acre.
