Green Trading Diatomaceous earth powder is made up of tiny fossilized diatoms (plankton) that have accumulated over millennia in freshwater lakes. These pure deposits are mined and ground into a fine powder that is naturally high in silica and other minerals. It is this chalky white powder that we call diatomaceous earth.
There are also 15 essential trace minerals, including, phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and iron. - perfect to add to your soil!
It's also known for being effective against plant pests - just sprinkle the powder over the affected plant or the top of the soil to treat! Rather than poisoning the bugs, this powder dehydrates them and the ground of fossil bits are extremely sharp to a tiny bug and once they inhale it into their respiratory system - it kills them.
