What are these fluid-filled balls in my soil

mommaSeptember 15, 2013

Okay, so I made an attempt to grow corn in containers this summer and was indeed able to grow somewhat successfully but I found strange light yellow fluid-filled balls in the soil when I was pulling up the old plants and roots. Is there something I should be worried about or are these the nitrogen balls that are on the roots from growing corn. I am getting ready to plant seeds for root veggies and really don't want to find out down the road after the fact that this is a really bad thing.

Did you put any slow release fertilizer in the container? Or perhaps use potting soil with fertilizer or moisture control?

No question that these are slow release (control release) fertilizer prills.
