What is Your Tea Recipe?
Also, what is the NPK for worm castings?!?!!
There's two things maf$&k%s gotta know about J-to-the-R-O-C, straight up, you know what I'm sayin'? First of all, I spin more rhymes than a Lazy Susan and I'm innocent until my guilt is proven. Peace. Representin' Sunnyvale, straight the %&$# up. - J-ROC
this is my first go with organics and i am absolutely loving my new hobby. i brewed my first compost tea the other day, super simple recipe:
1 1/2 cup of GO Ancient Forest
1 1/2 cup of EWC
1/4 cup insect frass
4 tblsp mollasses
Brewed for 48 hours
added GO Seaweed and Squid on second day..fed my girls for the first time at 1:1 ratio and the growth has exploded in the past 2 days, they're def digging it
~In compliance with Prop 215 and SB 420~
I found the basis for this recipe here: https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=53792
I put the dry ingredients in a nylon stocking and steep it in the wet ingredients while aerating for 24-36 hours
5 gal RO Water
1/3 Cup EWC (I use wiggle worm brand 1-0-0)
1/3 Cup Peruvian Seabird guano (Sunleaves 10-10-2)
1 Tbs Molasses
5 Tsp General Organics Diamond Black
4 oz Maxicrop Liquid Seaweed (0-0-1)
5 gal RO water
2/3 Cup EWC
2/3 Cup Seabird guano
2/3 Cup Jamaican bat guano (Sunleaves 1-10-.2)
2 Tbs Technaflora Soluble Seaweed (1-1-16)
2 Tbs Molassas
5 Tbs GO Diamond Black
In veg I use the tea every 3rd watering. In bloom every other watering. I would also advise going easy on the seabird guano in early veg until you know the plants can handle a full dose. These recipes have been working great for me. Good luck.
For veg i use
8-4-1 Desert bat guano
13-12-2 Seabird Guano
Dry kelp extract
And in my flower
3-10-1 Dry Bar bat cave guano
1-10-1 Fossilized seabird guano
Dry Kelp extract
Molases. Is there anything i can add for extra K?
The extra stuff like humus and myco i don't add everytime as it should be established in my system already.

Reason: 24 hours or longer
If i said it, i meant it. Keeping it 100
% And that's real.
I use per liter:
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
20ml. Seaweed extract
1/4 cup worm castings
1/4cup soil broken from roots of local dandelion
1 tsp bean/legume myco powder
1/2 tsp brewers yeast
1/8 tsp 10-15-10 Shultz AP w/ micronute
All in about 1 liter filtered tap water, airstone bubbled for 24-36 hours.
As for worm castings, I have read that it varies based on what the worms eat, and the typeof worms. They change soil texture and impact microbial life positively. Good stuff, organic.
