Black Nectar - Mature Leaves Nourish The Species

Decomposition and compaction of old plant material from an ancient rainforest creates a humus-rich shale, rich in nutrients and with significant health effects on various creatures, and hydrophilic and resistant to evaporation.

Black Nectar


Black beetle that feeds on the dung of others. Dead food is better than living food because its essence is closer to the final state of decay to which we all tend. From corruption comes new life.

Fill yourself with corruption, and from it you will be reborn, just as the fungi on the faces of the dead, who have rested in their graves for a span of years, rise and shine.

Imitate the beetle and the worms, and learn their lessons. Eat of the dead, lest you be swallowed up by the void. The living cannot teach the dead, but the dead can teach the living.

Decomposition and compaction of old plant material from an ancient rainforest creates humus-rich shale that is encapsulated and preserved by sediments, has significant health effects on various living things, and is hydrophilic and resistant to evaporation.

Humic acids are nature’s “black nectar.” This organically charged biostimulant, known by its rich dark brown to black color, this organically charged biostimulant has proven to have powerful and significant health effects on humans, animals, plants and the environment, and is an expression of the essential unity of all living things.

Humic acid, referred to as “black” in hydroponic formulations, is the rich material extracted from naturally oxidized and carefully selected sources of Leonardite.

Leonardite is also a naturally occurring hydrocarbon shale formed in the earth over millions of years by the chemical and biological decomposition of prehistoric plant and animal matter. Because it is highly decomposed and exposed to significant levels of microbial activity, it contains high concentrations of organic humic and fulvic acids. The concentration of these organic acids varies from deposit to deposit.

These humic acids and the decomposed plant material that has been transformed into humus shale contain 80 trace minerals that nourish plants and microorganisms and keep the soil healthy.

These minerals were previously extracted from the soil by living prehistoric plants and incorporated into their bodies in colloidal form – as very small molecules that can penetrate cell walls – as the plants grew. After the plants died and decayed, the nutrients were released and stored in the compost. In humic shale, they are now available in a form ideal for animals, humans and plants. Since they are still in colloidal form, humans and plants can absorb the trace elements quickly.

The polycyclic functional groups of humic acid molecules hold or “chelate” water. Humates hold many times their weight in moisture and are not water repellent even when dry. This makes humic acids hydrophilic – they resist or avoid wetting

Hydrophilic minerals never settle out of the liquid. Because of the size- to-weight ratio of a hydrophilic mineral derived from plants, it always remains suspended in water in the Earth’s gravitational field. The life span of this humus is indefinite and can be hundreds of years. It always remains constant, so the water in the soil and groundwater cannot evaporate.

If the green cover of the forest is destroyed, it leads to a dramatic catastrophe for the entire ecological edifice.
