    So how do you apply, my wife will be starting to juice wheatgrass soon and I'm down for anything organic for my babies.

    Lol, you have lucky babies my friend

    We/I just eat a row of fresh sprouts, a day in the smoothies, and freeze the seed and roots masses in the freezer and then thaw/feed those to the composts/worms, while the bunny gets what we can't eat.. Then as the recyclers (bunny/worms, etc) consume it it gets entered into the bio web..

    Tbh at the moment I don't really rely on SSTs at all, my style is fairly laden with fresh enzymes and tricks. but I just know there's always room for improvement so I like to learn all styles if i can, and compare for myself. I'm more here to do just that, compare/learn more about them so they can become an extra compliment and trigger for friends erc, so one can have more than one way to cause a speed up flowering or slow down in stretching etc.

    I use certain foliars and spectrums to cause certain effects like stem growth flower growth etc, so its very interesting to see the parallel worlds .. I just appreciated that post so much I saved the info for my business and had to say great post!

    I have a worm tower that is about to give me my first run of castings. Real easy to do and doesn't cost me a dime. I even have worms in my pots. Organic all day. I will be feeding my worms the leftovers form the wheatgrass, thanks Don Tesla.

    you can use the juice. how ever much nutrients are in each oz of juice will go to your soil and plant.

    Ok so I know I'm late to the party but I have a few questions. After the initial soak gets dumped, does anyone use the water the seeds soak in for a second or third time or must it be dumped? Can these SST's have any effect when applied thru a foliar spray? Lastly, I know someone touched on the topic of storing it but does anyone know what the rule is on whether they can be stored at all whether frozen, refridgerated or at room temp. Is it better to apply a SST alone, or would kelp, coconut water, fulpower & fish hydrolase added be a good idea?

    Generally you want to keep separate and mix at the end if you can, I'd rather keep separate, do something every day then everything at once

    Generally you throw away cause of growth inhibitors but spraying on bricks and weeds would be good perhaps!?

    Spraying through a mister generally is a very direct way of triggering responses, the plants have stomata its kind like our pores .. Very close to how our skin works .. I see it like a bath vs a shower.. Which can be mineralization and healing or irritating depending on the quality, makeup, and source of the liquid

    I have always used my sst the day I blend it up. Ohh and by the way, you want a cloudy delicious smelling concoction. You did it right. I have read some people letting the seeds soak for 48 hours, after blending, straining and then root drenching. I have never done that though. I also believe Dr Chos Korean natural farming has a recipe on fermenting SSTs. There are free PDFS of that book online. The unconventional farmer also might have a recipe for long term storage, I can't remember. Hope this helps!

    Peace

    What about top dressing instead? How often/how much?

    Dear St0wandgrow,
    I was asking on the Rols forum about freezing coconut water as I can only use minute amounts of it at every watering and I always find pint size bottle of it. So her I go again.
    Would anyone consider freezing coco water to preserve its content or would the enzymes and amino acids be broken down by the somewhat slow freezing process?

    IceCubingly yours,
    M

    "Boiling and Denaturation. At temperatures around boiling, the chemical bonds that hold together the structure of enzymes begin to break down. ... This is unlike freezing, which does not affect enzyme structure – if temperatures are increased after freezing, enzyme activity will be restored."

    Dear RandomHero8913,

    I would like to grasp this opportunity to thank you for this prized piece of information. You just allowed me to used Coconut water at a reasonable price.
    You truly are a Hero!
    To contribute to this thread I will make a side by side test with unfrozen bottled coconut water vs frozen coconut water. However, I am a small timer (more or less 4 plants at any given time) so my result will be anything BUT scientific.

    Coconutingly yours,
    M

    If my calculations are correct you should need about 5 ice cubes per gallon of water. Keep it simple, if you only need to water a quart of water just throw one in.

    That number comes from my notes. You want about 1/4 cup of coconut water per gallon. If you're using the powder coconut water add 2.75g of powder to 1/4 cup of lukewarm water(helps it dissolve better) then add that to your gallon.
