    How much alfalfa SST is recommended per gallon? Mendo dope boys mentioned on round table that it is a lot stronger than popcorn tea. Wondering how high of cytokinin levels alfalfa has relative to popcorn tea. It should have the same apical dominance suppression effect--possibly/likely to a greater degree... So all buds act like the main/terminal bud...

    Anyone ever used alfalfa SST. I think MendoDope boys said to use it at about 1/4 the rate of popcorn because it is so strong. They also said something about not brewing it in a tea for more than a day... supposedly become toxic to plants if left longer--they said something of that nature during the growtube...

    I aerate it in a 5gal bucket and I use( 2 row roasted barley). At least 24hrs , plus I add some cocoa nut water( not the can) but the water in the rectangular box for when I don't want to sprout corn. Your gonna love how your ladies respond to the barley tea.

    If I don't fly imma die anyway

    Check out the barley on Amazon and I use 3/4 to 1 cup of barley that I grind up in my ninja grinder and add it to my 5gal bucket to aerate for 24 to 48 hrs. Cocoa nut water in the box that is all organic. Not with additives. You can add 1 cup of cocoa nut water to 5gal water or you can add with the barley tea
