Can sapropel be used in a greenhouse


Can sapropel be used in a greenhouse? I know that at the site its introduction is very useful, but in a greenhouse with high humidity there will be the same result? Will there be any negative points?

Answers:

Freshwater sludge, otherwise sapropel is used as fertilizer. However, not many people know that this natural fertilizer can also be used in a greenhouse, previously mixed with a complex mineral fertilizer. It is believed that the use of freshwater sludge increases the period of soil replacement in the greenhouse by about 7 years. It supports the fertility of the earth, less often requires watering.

The mass of sapropel in the formation of soil for the greenhouse should be no more than 30% of the total mass. With such a fraction in the soil, sapropel will not bring any negative problems. Freshwater sludge helps loamy clay heavy soils, and its composition cleanses of pathogenic bacteria.
