Algae Alchemy: Transforming aerium Byproduct Into Garden Gold

Posted by Jessica Ainsworth on

We at AlgenAir have harnessed the power of algae, leveraging its capacity to bring you and your family clean and safe air. We’ve achieved this with our aerium and its oxygenating spirulina microalgae-based refills.

With the aerium and our microalgae refills, your living spaces become free from carbon dioxide accumulation as the algae photosynthesize CO2 to give you clean, breathable air.

However, if you’ve had the aerium for a while now, you’ll know there’s a limit to how long you can use its microalgae-filled refills.

Do you just dispose of them? We say no. Instead, you can recycle aerium byproducts by turning them into fertilizing agents for your plants.

How? We’ll answer this question and more below.

Find out how you can turn your aerium’s used refills into gardening gold.

Why You Should Recycle Your Microalgae Refills

Granted, you can always go to your local gardening store to get fertilizer for your house plants. However, a better solution would be to use your aerium’s microalgae byproducts.

By choosing to recycle your refills, you’ll do more than save money on fertilizer. You’ll be giving your plants some of the best organic fertilizers on the planet.

Here are some of the benefits algae has on your plants.

Nutrient-Rich Composition

Microalgae are packed with essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and trace minerals, making them a nutrient-rich fertilizer for plants. These nutrients are vital for plant growth and development, promoting strong root systems, lush foliage, and vibrant blooms.

Slow-Release Nutrients

Unlike synthetic fertilizers that deliver nutrients all at once, microalgae release nutrients gradually as they decompose. This slow-release mechanism ensures that plants receive a steady supply of nutrients over time, reducing the risk of nutrient runoff and leaching into the environment.

Improved Plant Health and Resilience

The organic compounds present in microalgae stimulate plant immune responses, boosting resilience against pests, diseases, and environmental stressors. Plants fertilized with microalgae exhibit greater resistance to drought, heat, and nutrient deficiencies, resulting in healthier and more robust growth.

How To Turn Your aerium Refills Into Fertilizer

Now that you know about the plant benefits of microalgae, here’s how you can turn your microalgae-infused refills into fertilizer for your garden.

Step 1: Ensure That Your Algae Is Past the 60-Day Mark

By the 60-day mark, the microalgae will have run out of food. This means it will be time to replace the refill. For our purposes, the 60-day mark is a sign for you to turn the algae into fertilizer.

Step 2: Pour Some Into Your Plant’s Soil

Algae can consolidate. This means that you shouldn’t pour all of the refill’s contents into your plant’s soil. Instead, pour small amounts over several days.

Step 3: Check Your Plant’s Health and Marvel at the Results

As you use your refills as fertilizer, check how your plants respond. You’ll be amazed at the results.

Key Takeaway: Recycle Your Refills

Our spirulina-based microalgae refills can do more than purify your living space’s air. After they’ve served their intended purpose, they’re amazing as fertilizer, providing your plants with numerous nutrients you won’t find in other plant fertilizers.

So, go ahead. Recycle your aerium refills. Your plants will thank you!
