    if a compost tea is burning plants its made wrong. you should be able to give them tea every day if you wanted.

    fish and seaweed is point less in a tea man you want to add things that feed the microbs not the plant. i would use earth worm castings and add a little good compost or ancient forest humus for microbs and one tablespoon of molasses for 5 gallons of water to feed the microbs organic oats,popcorn ground up or alfalfa meal are great for fugal growth. mix the seaweed and fish in the soil or just feed it straight

    Build a soil is great, dude, I like em as a company for some of my organic amendments that i can't get in Canada
    You're def on the right track..
    I'd Forget the booster packs tho.

    If looking for extra boosts you can pre-innoculate a bit of soil a day or two ahead of tea time with a fungal food for example and get it furry with mycelium And toss some in to your brew.. If desired.
    What's a couple TBSP of rice hulls cost? That will cause a massive fungal outbreak..
    Frass meanwhile is kind of pricey but very fast and effective nonetheless, try it for yourself maybe..
    I've written some informative posts on it if you want to search.

    As for tim, I rock his recipe but find it a bit strong for myself, for my more sensitive and finicky sativas especially..
    It might be worm diet or molasses that does that (burn), but in any event going a little weaker is never a bad thing, you can always apply another tea, but you can't unburn a tip..

    I reckon they'd love it, any harsh nutrient content should've been consumed by the micro's.........go for it

    are they root bound? when the leaves curl down it usually has to do with the roots, too much or not enough water or uneven watering or root bound etc.

    Wonderful thread !!! I'm a 6 year experienced organic grower. I grow in Promix MP Organik. I had a question for the gang......

    I recently made my own Lactobacillus. I have some in the fridge (pure) and some stored in a cool place diluted to preserve with BSM. I usually use the Lab/BSM as my microbe feed.....
    Is it ok or should I eliminate the LAB and just use BSM. ? Got me some monsters that started indoor March that transitioned Outdoor June and still vegging till August. They and my garden ❤ a good EWC+ BIO FLOR+ YUCCA+ LAB/BSM 24-48 Bubbling 50/50 Rain Water (Québec Canada)

    This is my very first organic grow in amended soil (actually it is my first grow ever!) I'm seeing very good results so far. I've been brewing AACT for my girls every week using Tim Wilson designed 5 gallon pail airlift brewer using castings and BSM. My plants appear to be very happy afterwards :D

    You should read a little and apply some SST (seed sprouting tea) great on enzymes and organic. I've done Barley Alfalfa and Wheat Grass. Once blended I put in ice cube tray freeze and store in freezer. I feed organic nutes (Nature's Nectar ) next feeding : Water w/SST next feeding Compost Tea... etc.

    If you're growing organically it doesn't really matter that much, unless it is off to an extreme. I've not measured the ph of my water for over 2 years, I do know it comes out of the tap at around 7 out of experience, but when I start adding some of my home made potions and LAB it's probably quite acidic..........that's what calcium carbonate is added to the soil for though and the microorganisms should balance the ph of your soil.

    Just realised I sound like a 'know all' twat when I'm full of man flu, and over medicated to compensate............I consider myself new to organics too, so shouldn't be spouting shit like I'm Elaine fookin Ingham pmsl......................on a side note, one of my guilty pleasures when I switched to organics was drifting off to sleep to the sounds of Elaine Ingham on one of her hour long rants aboout soil biology and compost, pmsl

    I have a recipe for a pro mix based super soil that's organic but Im using promix with some EWC and Kelp topping and feed with roots Buddha grow and Buddha bloom ( I guess that's organic but not what I'd call growing organic) and a tea once in a while. I have tons of Cal and Mg (Yes both) issues if I don't PH to 5.8-6.0 and use calimagic

    For Promax MP Organic I mix in some EWC and extra Perlite. I really never ph my nutes but when I use Yellow Bottle Silica I bubble rain water with Silica 24 hours before then add my CalMag+ G.O then I Ph. In reality for years of grow (not so much) I've not ph a tea of feeding and in organics from reading Alot the soil stabilizes the ph. I don't use dolomite or use Epson salt but I do have them incase. Next step is a real organic no bottles live soil 8-)
