In today’s video I talk about the possible uses of leftover corn for vegetable gardens and garden plants. The cob, marlo, tusa, zuro, bacal, crown or corn rachis can provide many benefits.

Do you know another name? Unfortunately, many people do not know their properties and throw them in the trash or incinerate them in large piles or to light a fire, generating pollution. Thousands of tons of corn scraps are burned and can be used in a variety of ways.

Specifically, I’m going to talk about four possible uses you can use marlo in growing tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, roses and many garden plants that require moist soil with organic matter and good drainage.

This new technique will help us to make better use of the homemade fertilizer we make for our houseplants and urban gardens, as well as its leftovers as a cover for our potted plants.

Another great benefit is that it will be an excellent shelter and food for worms since the hemicellulose they contain is a high quality food for them.
