    For the price. Have you considered buying premixed soil. Then adding it to the promix?

    depends on pot size amigo but generally the smaller, the more often, and the bigger, the less often its needed.

    for example, one gallons, could go weekly, if week. if 20 gal pots, you could innoculate once when mixing and if babied it could get by without tea its whole life, if life was maintained. however, with that being said, usually every 3 weeks on average, with key times being when you transplant and when you flower.

    generally, a basic a.a.c.tea itself is all you really need if the soil is well balanced with minerals etc but during veg and the first month of flower you can make up for shortcomings if you see, however not all ingredients are water soluble, nor require aerating (only steeping) so it can be counterproductive to depend on for corrections

    That said, your mix is reallllllly shaping up nicely and you should be proud of where you're at.

    What I would more do is focus on the 3 other things now that you've made it this far.. your meal base, again, is really really bang on imo. but yea, always room for improvement, now I would just focus a little bit on paramagnetism , as well as premium aeration, and keeping that humus content nice and high

    The amendments you've chosen are good and you're on the right track, but you can make things even simpler.

    Per 1 cuft of old promix add 1/2 cup of Neem Meal, Crab Meal, and Kelp Meal. That's all you really need for amendments.

    For minerals, get your hands on some basalt, oyster shell flour, and gypsum. Per 1cuft of old Promix, add 2 cups basalt, 1 cup OSF, and 1 cup gypsum.

    Make sure you get your hands on some high quality compost and/or EWC as well.

    After you've remixed the promix, you can go no-till for each consecutive grow. Instead of taking the promix out of the pots and re-amending it, simply top dress your pots with the same stuff you used to amend the soil. Then throw some EWC on top of the top dress and you're good to go. You'll generally need to top dress every 4 weeks, give or take, your plants will tell you what they want/need. Some of my heavy feeders need a top dress every 3 weeks, but typically once a month works just fine for me.

    Happy growing!
