    Plant lover finds chunks of hair in her potting mix

    Plant lover discovers a ‘creepy’ find in her newly purchased potting mix – but could it actually be good for the plants?

    •  A plant lover has revealed her ‘creepy’ discovery in newly bought potplant
    •  She found ‘chunks of human hair’ in her newly purchased indoor plants
    •  Some people disagree with the plant lover and said it was ‘normal’

    A young woman took home more than she bargained for when she bought some new indoor plants from an elderly woman – only to find they had been potted in human hair. 

    Lisa Lunam, from Queensland, was re-potting her new caladiums when she realised they were not potted in an ordinary soil mix.

    Instead they were growing in ‘chunks of human hair’.

    ‘It’s not coconut husks or anything, it is human hair,’ she said. 

    Posting a photograph of the shocking discovery online she asked if she was ‘cursed or anything’ and explained she was creeped out by the find. 

    ‘Go and find a priest and drown yourself and the house in sage. That is creepy,’ one woman said.

    ‘Utterly gross,’ said another.

    ‘All I can think of is the germs,’ another wrote.

    ‘Altogether now, ewww,’ one person said.

    But some people didn’t find anything wrong with it.

    ‘I always put in the compost when I clean the brush on the vacuum cleaner, it is good,’ said one woman.

    She bought the caladiums, similar to those pictured, but didn't realise the previous owner had made her own unique potting mix

    Why was there hair in the potting mix? 

    Hair can, in fact, be good for plants – as it can improve the quality of soil. 

    It does this by slowly releasing nutrients like magnesium into the soil. 

    It also slowly releases nitrogen which is important for plants. 

    It can keep the area moist, break up clay-based soil and provide support for roots.

    It is best for slow growing plants.

    ‘I put my hair in my garden,’ one woman said.

    Others appeared to think it was actually good for the plants, despite Ms Lunam being ‘creeped’ out.

    ‘It’s a bit weird but technically it would serve as a function that it slowly release nutrients and nitrogen to the plant. Something they really need,’ one woman said.

    ‘It is a reminder we humans are part of the natural cycle.’

    ‘I have done it with some of my plants and they loved it, brought my peace lily back to life with it,’ one said.

    ‘I own a hair salon, I always clean my plants out so there’s no chunks of hair sitting on them – but they do so much better in the salon than they do at home, I think the plants love it,’ a hairdresser said.
