Inventory of which plants like drinking alcohol

Many people like to have a few drinks when they are in a good mood. But it turns out that not only humans like to drink alcohol; flowers do too? Although this statement may sound abrupt, it's not without reason. Because in addition to relying on light, water, soil and temperature for growth, plants also rely heavily on nutrients. Among them, beer can decompose trace elements needed by plants in the soil, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Therefore, in the plant kingdom, there are some "alcoholics" that particularly like drinking alcohol. Let's introduce several plants that like to have a few drinks below.
Flower friends who have raised Anthurium must have experienced the situation where the flowers of Anthurium do not bloom. If a similar situation occurs, you can let Anthurium have some beer. However, one thing to note here is that you cannot pour it directly. It must be diluted with clear water before watering, otherwise, if the concentration is too high, it will have the opposite effect. The principle of using beer to make it bloom is that the yeast and sugar in the beer can be obtained by Anthurium as extras. Therefore, in addition to promoting flowering, it can also eliminate pests.
There is a saying that "risk one's life to keep company with a gentleman". Perhaps it is also appropriate for the alcohol-loving Clivia plant. Do you want its leaves to become lush and green? Then wipe the wine on the leaves of Clivia to make it more shiny and clean. Do you want its flowers to be more vivid? Then you can use beer as nutrients to irrigate its roots, which can make its plants more vigorous. However, it should be noted that no matter what method of wiping and root irrigation is used, it needs to be diluted with water to a certain extent, otherwise it will harm it instead.
Epipremnum aureum
There is a folk saying that Epipremnum aureum loves drinking beer the most. Whether it is in the form of hydroponics or potted plants, just adding a few drops of beer to the water can make it take on a new look. But it should be noted that for hydroponic Epipremnum aureum, after adding alcohol each time, the plants need to be watered every two or three days. In addition, for potted Epipremnum aureum, attention should also be paid to dilution before use and not excessive use, because it is afraid that the sugar in the beer will affect the soil to be too moist, thereby causing fungal diseases.
