    So one person says use molasses and another says not so fast. Being new to this organic thing can be confusing but still I do appreciate the information. Just finishing up my first organic (no salts) grow and fairly happy with the results. I had some deficiencies I had to correct but I'm sold on the initial results.

    You’re safer to not use compost teas unless you can tell the amount of dissolved oxygen and keep them at the correct level.
    A much safer and beneficial route is to just topdress the compost. If you’re adding some nutrients sprinkle that on top before you add the compost and just water it in.

    Teas are fun in the beginning but I ended up getting tired of cleaning out buckets and pumps, and top dressing gave the same results.

    Sst is the jam, I pretty much always have seeds sprouting during the season. I love compost teas too though, but I don't use them nearly as much as the SSTs. However, the last month of flower I really like to hit the ladies with compost tea that I "spike" with my homemade fungal flats. It really helps with the uptake of phosphorous in my opinion.

    Peace

    How long can i keep a tea brewing? Just getting into them and am only brewing my 2nd batch. Tried to time it out with what I thought was going to be watering time but the pots aren't quite dry yet. Today is day 3 of it brewing. Will it be ok to use in 12 hours when I get home from work? Doesn't smell bad at all.

    hey bro,3 days sounds a little long.for compost/ewc teas i usually would shoot for the 36-42 hour brew time mark.i do believe ive read you can fridge it for a few hours if you had to,i could be wrong.
    i used to brew teas weekly for my outdoor,but have reconsidered/replaced my ewc teas for just dry amendments scratched into the surface.steamed fish meal is a good one for flowering,but that's just the tip of the iceberg.dry amendments are something i plan on researching and to learn more about over the winter,as well as sst feedings.
    a lot of ppl are using ewc teas to jumpstart a dried out soil or to rejuvenate a soil that has sat for awhile.

    I kinda figured it was a little long. I'll try and time it out better next time. Thanks.
