I made a batch of compost tea and feed it to my plant’s 2 days ago.It’s been aerating in the 5gl bucket ever since.I guess my question is can i still use the tea on my plants or should i go with water .i gave each plant like a liter once and now they are ready to be watered again should i use th rest of the tea or go with just water
Tag an experienced grower. Then they can see your post.
Depends on what ingredients are in your tea. We go every three days with our teas. If it’s still in the bubbling mode you can use it. Like I said it depends on what’s in your tea. We only go 24 hours with our teas but some do go 2 days but never seemed the need to go that long.I would not go over 2 days in my opinion.
We went with a tea roughly ever four to six days. The plants can only suck up so much nutrients over a certain amount of time. While going organic we have found that less is normally better. ‘Not all the time’. When working up a good tea think of this. Feed the soil! If the soil is healthy than the plant can reap the rewards.
There are many methods out there for brewing. We like to stick with 24-48hrs max. Once the bubbles are off we feed within 30mins. If you are starting your grow with a healthy soil a good tea should not be needed tell the middle of veg.
Also keep in mind that your tea recipe will change with your grow.
@GoBlue I love the setup. If you don’t mind me asking what is your recipe for veg/flower? How often?
Sorry hippy didn’t get back to you sooner I’m having heat issues… NOT GOOD! I use 1/2 cup liquid kelp, 8 cups of premo earthworm castings,bat guano ( 1 tbsp per gallon ),1/4 tbsp of seabird guano in veg Very week and a half to every 2 weeks depends how I feel lol…all in ph’d filtered water…I do use cal mag from time to time but probably not as much as others on here…Now in Flower flip the guanos around and is what I use.Need more phosphorus in flower then veg and more nitrogen in veg then in flower. I used to use molasses but seemed like it attracted bugs especially gnats…If you use bat guano low amounts and worm castings you can actually use that once a week never burns at least in my experience.I try to go organic 100% if I can’t help it…also use Dr. Bronners organic baby soap unscented and Organic neem oil for bugs…Not a tree hugger by far but think organic is the way to go as much as possible…
Back to business, have 2 23000 btu mini splits In flower and 1 18000 In veg room well not recommended running the air side under 63 degrees and its 48 degrees outside in Michigan Had mini split freeze ups got back running but can’t run long or they will freeze up again. Designing a new exhaust system at the moment… Happy growing!! You ask me a question u get a book so it seems
To make it clear as my first roost on every three days that’s super light mostly castings don’t wanna do all that every three days. Sorry for the misconception
