Urine is a great fertilizer

One of those old guys in the hills was telling me he goes out and pisses on his plants every night and pours coors beer into them. At first I laughed but I like to keep an open mind. He has the best outdoor I have ever seen. The old geezer was dead serious and i thought I would look into it. Turns out urine is full of awesome stuff. I knew people used human waste to grow corn for ethanol etc, but I never learned so much about urine until now.

What’s in urine?
Urine, 95% of which is water, 2.5% of which is urea, and 2.5% of which is a mixture of minerals, salts, hormones, and enzymes, is not a toxic waste product. Urine is a blood byproduct and though it contains some body waste, it is non-toxic. In 1975, Dr. A.H. Free, published his book Urinalysis in Clinical Laboratory Practice, in which he presents a few critical nutrients found in urine:

Alanine, total ..... 38 mg/day
Arginine, total ..... 32 mg/day
Ascorbic acid ..... 30 mg/day
Allantoin ..... 12 mg/day
Amino acids, total ..... 2.1 g/day
Bicarbonate ..... 140 mg/day
Biotin ..... 35 mg/day
Calcium ..... 23 mg/day
Creatinine ..... 1.4 mg/day
Cystine ..... 120 mg/day
Dopamine ..... 0.40 mg/day
Epinephrine ..... 0.01 mg/day
Folic acid ..... 4 mg/day
Glucose ..... 100 mg/day
Glutamic acid ..... 308 mg/day
Glycine ..... 455 mg/day
Inositol ..... 14 mg/day
Iodine ..... 0.25 mg/day
Iron ..... 0.5 mg/day
Lysine, total ..... 56 mg/day
Magnesium ..... 100 mg/day
Manganese ..... 0.5 mg/day
Methionine, total ..... 10 mg/day
Nitrogen, total ..... 15 g/day
Ornithine ..... 10 mg/day
Pantothenic acid ..... 3 mg/day
Phenylalanine ..... 21 mg/day
Phosphorus, organic .....9 mg/day
Potassium ..... 2.5 mg/day
Proteins, total ..... 5 mg/day
Riboflavin ..... 0.9 mg/day
Tryptophan, total ..... 28 mg/day
Tyrosine, total ..... 50 mg/day
Urea ..... 24.5 mg/day
Vitamin B6 ..... 100 mg/day
Vitamin B12 ..... 0.03 mg/day
Zinc ..... 1.4 mg/day

Anybody using diluted piss? Laugh away if you must. Just curious really. I suppose if you were in a bad way you could use strictly pee to grow your plants. What do you all think? I am thinking of growing a piss plant for fun LOL :mmm

I wonder to what extent you can make it better by taking a food based multivitamin with lots of water soluble vitamins.

I've always wanted to drink my own piss one time to see what would happen

would i feel sick or would I noticeably feel better?

just never had the balls to do it...
La Paz - The sole survivor of a plane crash in Bolivia stayed alive by eating insects, drinking his own urine and painting an arrow in the ground with his blood to show rescuers where he was, according to an interview published in a Bolivian newspaper.

Minor Vidal told the publication La Razon that he survived for 62 hours after the crash by using skills he had learned from the Boy Scouts and while pursuing his loves of camping and fishing. Those actions included filtering water through his clothes so that he could drink it and looking for an open space by a lagoon where he waited for his rescuers.

The 35-year-old pharmaceuticals and cosmetics salesman was travelling on an Aerocon flight from the eastern Bolivian city of Santa Curz to Trinidad in the Amazon when the plane went down on Tuesday night.

Vidal said he was seated in the back of the plane and found himself trapped amid the wreckage. He was seriously injured in the head and the ribs but remained conscious.

"The plane crashed in the night, there was fire and the smell of gasoline," he said in the interview. "At first when nothing could be seen, I heard shouts, but afterward, everything fell silent. That moment was horrible."

Eight others died in the plane crash.

After crawling out of the wreckage on Wednesday, Vidal said, he drew an arrow with his blood in the ground to indicate the direction he had walked in. He also left his shirt in another spot as a sign for his rescuers.

A navy patrol boat spotted him on Friday on a river bank.

Seasonal fires set by farmers and ranchers had reduced visibility at the time of the crash. Aerocon spokesperson Nelson Kinn said the plane's black box has been recuperated and sent to Brazil for analysis.

DO IT! Let us know because I am too big a pussy to do it as well.

1. Urine is highly acidic and needs to be pH balanced before applying directly to plants.

2. The Nitrogen is readily available to plants and can easily burn if over applied.

3. "Urea Nitrogen" is not the best source of N........ do a search and you'll see what I'm talking about......

I have used urine as a fertilizer for years. Some say mix it with a 10 to 1 ratio, 10 parts water to 1 part pee. Others say 20 to 1. I use 20 to 1.

I like inviting folks over for dinner and after the meal I ask them how they liked my garden veggies. I then tell them about my magic piss.

on another pissy note: it wasn't long ago that those surviving trapped miners talked about how they drank their own piss to avoid dehydration. I think I would chill mine first. :help:

Chilled piss! Awesome. Warm piss sucks. Anybody ever go up to the trough at the red rocks mens bathroom and lean over and take a big ole swig of warm concert community man piss? Maybe a fresh squeezed lemon if you have the luxury! Thanks! I knew somebody on the farm was peeing on the plants. SSHZ makes a good point. Even though urea is not the best source of N you could keep your fire OG alive after a plane crash on a desert island until you got something better worked out! I am worried about that happening, thats why I am trying to learn about survival methods right now ;)

I have never used urine in my fertilizer, but I know this old cat that grows everything BUT cannabis (he used to, but now has a family business producing all kinds of organic products for vendors pretty large scale for a family farm). I know that he uses BIOCHAR and that has urine mixed in most times. I believe he stated that it was a great source of nitrogen in Biochar. I am not too familiar with the subject, other than hearing about it a little in casual conversation, but hope to gear my ways towards even more organic. I do know that I support his CSA and everything: corn, garlic, greens, eggs, goat's milk, cheese etc. is just incredible. I am sure anyone interested can search a little for Biochar or Thermophilic composting and get more information, but as I have not experienced this first hand, I can only speculate. Good luck. Positive vibes...
