    Should my teas be made from composted poop? Or the raw? Cause my book isn't telling me clearly.

    And there's a possibility of elephant poop in my near future. Should I? Cause I mean c'mon.

    It's an elephant.

    I wouldn't use my poop because I'm not an herbivore. Don't belittle me cause I'm asking for clarification from the professional literature. I'm bloody new at this, and I bloody know it, and I bloody hate asking questions enough as it is.

    Tracking on the composted. What happens if I don't? I'm assuming a disease something, but I don't know. I'm also assuming it's been tested and whatnot.

    What difference is there in worm composted poop and pile composted poop? Does it only make a richer worm casting? Is that possible?

    Anything on the elephant poop? I can't think of a good reason not to.

    Well oops then I must have fudged the brownie real good.

    I used fresh (didn't date it, but it was near their pen and I just scooped it up. i got some fresh, some old) chicken and goat shit mixed it with a little alfalfa and a drop of molasses in a 5 gal bucket - then let it sit in sun with a lid on for 48 hrs. It was my first attempt at making an organic and sustainable tea with ingredients that are readily available to me. It seems to have worked great outdoors because all my plants look great and are just coated in crystals. It's only my second outdoor grow but this one looks hella better.

    I just added a bucket full of it to my indoor grow 3 days ago. Hopefully the indoor will be ok.

    I think with animals that have complex stomachs and are herbivores, it is okay to add the shit immediately because their stomachs process the plant material so well (or something like that but much more complicated). Cows, goats. Fresh chicken shit is prob not as good but I only used a few droppings

    You don't want to introduce facultative or obligate anaerobic microbes into your teas, avoid those whenever possible.

    it doesnt have to be poo from a herbivore. people use bat guano which bats eat bugs and people use chicken poo and some chickens eat bugs if they are raised in fields.
    i like worm castings but i do not give my worm any poo. only some food scrapes. elephant poo would probably be alright if you compost it first as there is alot of solids in the poo still and straight poo might be to hot for plants.

    I've always thought of guano as the exception to the rule. You have bats and seabirds which may eat fruit, insects, or even fish. The bat and seabird digestive systems are quite different, and both are also different from carnivorous mammals. Birds for example have a crop and a gizzard like most reptiles and earthworms do. Also, commercial guano usually comes from large deposits which should be aged, fossilized or ancient (thousands of years old).

    hm never thought of that. bird poo is alot different than actual poo since its their pee and poo mixed. as with ancient composts. i got some "ancient forest compost" and that was forsure not thousands of years old... it had alot of sticks in it. maybe there is an exception.

    Ancient Forest (General Organics) is a bit different from a compost, it is a totally natural compost as in pure forest humus. Forest litter that has been accumulating and decomposing over very long periods of time. I've used it, so I know that the bags contain interesting remnants of forest debris including stones and some decaying twig and root pieces. Really though, 90% of the material is considerably unrecognizable; rich black humus. It has tens of thousands of species of bacteria and several thousand of fungi, and other micro-organisms.

    In my experience Ancient Forest humus is the best, most versatile inoculant for AACT's.
