Fish Emusion

Recommended Posts

I bought some Coles brand the other day, the N-P-K is 9-2-6, cost around $4 for 500ml. It's smells pretty bad, which is one reason against using it indoors but also I'm a little concerned about mold after noticing the top-soil in some of my pots is rather green looking, note that I haven't actually seen anything furry yet.


But yeah the plants seem to like it. Anyone have much experience using fish emulsion by itself or with other ferts?

The green is more likely an algae rather than a fungus... soil surfaces that are damp and shaded will grow algae pretty quickly.


When I first started growing in containers rather than open ground I used fish emulsion and seaweed extract exclusively. I doubt the smell will be an issue if you have a carbon filter... I used to refer to the aroma as 'Scents of the Sea' aka dead fish and rotting seaweed.
