Urine as fertilizer

Forum squad, upon much reading I encountered some die hard all natural growers. They use their own urine as a fertilizer with a dilution of 1 part urine to 20 parts water. Have you guys had any experience with this? Was it successful? Not that I want to try but chemicals are destroying everything in the world and if this reduces my footprint definitely worth while.

Do you really think you are going to pee enough to feed a crop?
Maybe if you drink more beer?
Sorry…couldn’t help myself…:wink:

Tan lover , I also was laughing unbelievably when I first read this craziness, but hard core environmental growers swear by it. So who knows how much pee, we have smoked in the past :joy:

Have read urea on many fertilizers…just kind of made me choke a little…lol.
rather not think of how much animal pee I will smoking next time…:nauseated_face:

I hope there are some more positive inputs as the OP is asking a decent question.:nerd_face:

This can be done… but you must understand that there is a fermentation process that has to happen before you can use it… :wink:

I have a hard enough time trying to find time to keep up with my garden , let alone trying to fab up nutrients… some people have the time … as for me … I don’t… I just use general hydroponic fertilizers and additives… there cheap ,clean and super easy to use… no fuss no muss… :wink:

For all that have provided input. I appreciate the feedback, I don’t want anyone to think that I believe that I can undertake such a huge task. It literally was brought up to have conversation and learn from one another about this topic. Actually it is quite funny but an interesting topic

You need to ferment it first then dilute the fermented pee
I personally would find another source tho

Fellow forum peeps… awesome feedback , this is the type of interaction I was hoping for. There a few articles out there in the subject. Theory and practice are quite different, so it’s good to know that most people are sticking to the traditional
