    I plan on using this recipe from the first page.

    "Flowering nute tea mix:
    2/3 cup Peruvian Seabird Guano
    2/3 cup Earth Worm Castings
    2/3 cup High P Guano (Indonesian or Jamaican)
    (That makes the "dry mix". You can make all you want and save it to use later.)
    5 tbs. Maxicrop 1-0-4 powdered kelp extract
    5 tbs. Black Strap Molasses
    @ 2 cups dry mix/5 gallons of water EVERY watering."

    My girls are half way into flower. I know that guano can burn.

    I want a second opinion if it would be a good idea to dilute it 50/50 with fresh water after I brew it so make sure they take it well and not burn them.

    not knowing how your plant is going to respond,diluting is probably a good idea.I would dilute and just see how your plant does.also,I don't know about every watering,I watered with my tea once a week. one other thing,is that 5 tablespoons molasses per 5 gallons of h20?if so,I'd dial that back.I use 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons of h20.it's hard to know your ratios mixing all your powders up beforehand,not saying it's not a good idea,it's just hard to gauge.maybe keep track of your tablespoons of each and figure that ratio to your h20 per gallon?
    there are way more experienced ppl on this thread,they know more than me,just my thoughts.best of luck!

    I have been using a recipe from vital earth organics. Its worked really well for me so far. Ive tweaked it a little since the beginning to add a few components i felt it was missing. Here is the original formula i started with.

    .5 cup Baseline Compost Concentrate (peat humus)
    .5 cup California gold humus
    1 cup EWC
    .5 Malibu Bu's Blend compost (cow manure base with yarrow, camomile and a few other things.
    1 Tbsp glacial rock powder (trace elements, calcium, iron, cobalt, sodium)
    2 Tbsp Vital Kelp
    4 Tbsp Insect Frass
    4 Tbsp Vital Fish Hydroslate
    2 Tbsp Vital Roots (mycorrhiza)

    I added the following on my own to tweak it a bit

    2 Tbsp Unsulpured molasses
    .25 Cup Bokashi (wheat bran, molasses, mineral rock salt)
    1 Tsp Sea Green (3% humic acid)
    .5 Cup Alfalfa meal
    .5 cup soybean meal
    .5 cup cotton seed meal
    And then i add or subtract a guano depending on if i want to make a guano tea or not. If im making guano tea for veg i use .5 cup 9-3-1 guano and for flower i add a high p guano or sea bird guano. This has worked really well. Its a lot of ingredients but they last through at least 2 years of grows. Happy tea making.

    I've been using a recipe from Tim the Microbe Man, but I've tweaked it to tone it down, and round it out, I noticed burn on many sat doms following his recipe..

    so now I use:

    2% total volume: diy worm compost / fungal compost

    (high humic acid content, bacterial dom, fungal dom soil prepared with fungal foods, depending on time/goals)

    and

    2-5 ml of evaporated cane juice crystals per 1000 mL tea (organic raw, harvested same day, molasses intact, less sugar toward the end)

    Of course, I do use bokashi, lacto, borage, chamomile, aloe, coconut, frass, kelp, etc etc sometimes too but usually only when I realize I didnt amend properly. With the exception of aloe, lacto, and coconut, those are staples for me.
