Benefits of Cinnamon for Plants and How to Use It


  1. Fungal Protection: Sprinkling fine cinnamon on the soil surface when planting seeds helps protect them from various fungi due to cinnamon’s potent antifungal properties. 🦠
  2. Ant Repellent: Sprinkling a small amount of cinnamon around the seed planting area effectively keeps ants away and prevents them from approaching. 🦗
  3. Root Growth Enhancement: Cinnamon helps increase root growth, giving plants extra strength and a greater ability to absorb nutrients from the soil, improving their overall growth. You can sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on the soil when planting or propagating plants using cuttings. ☘️
  4. Wound Disinfection: If you accidentally cut or injure a part of the plant, it’s crucial to treat the wound to prevent rot and the spread of infection to other parts. The best way to treat such wounds is by sprinkling a little fine cinnamon to keep the wound disinfected. 🍁

A Simple and Effective Experiment👇

You can greatly benefit from this method: Boil a teaspoon of cinnamon in a cup of water and let it sit in the container for a day (24 hours). Then dilute it with 3 liters of water and water the plants thoroughly until the excess water drains out of the pot. Within a few days, you will notice that the plants grow well, with new buds and leaves forming. Even seeds that you planted but did not initially sprout will start to germinate and produce new small buds.
