  1. I’ve seen a few of your videos. Always great, informative and inexpensive. I saw a video, a guy used mycochorize in a tea and made a fungal tea. Looked amazing. I can send you the link. Looked easy. Just a variation for plants.

  2. Thanks much for this video. I read some articles about the compost tea might help have the ecoli bacterias multiply and may cause harm on a potenial outbreak. Is this a myth or true?

  3. I can get damaged bags of cow manure fully composted for mixing in garden soil for planting my crops. Molasses is cheap, but kelp meal and fish emulsion can be a bit expensive. I would be tempted to use rain water and dump in a third of a bucket of this cow compost and molasses and let it cook for a week or so. I'm sure added alfalfa pellets would be beneficial as well. I work at a feed store for farmers and ranchers and can get, broken bags real cheap or for free. That's how I mixed my own potting mix for toms, beans and squash this season. I'm sure that plants are very healthy, compared to last season. After I use the tea, the sludge will get dumped into my bin for next season's mixture and amendments. BTW, I started toms on 3/10 and I have gumball sized fruit sets already. Set in pots on 6/01. I "top dressed" with a mixture of compost, slow release fertilizer (4-6-2), a bit more gypsum and some bone meal. When I water, the dressing will release onto the root balls. I'm hoping to have a good crop so my frau will have no reason to complain about the amounts of work I have put into these plants this year. She thinks it would be better to just buy inferior plants from a picked over nursery outlet. They are usually water starved, yellowed leaves and extremely root bound, not to mention spindly and light starved. I'm going to forbid her from wasting money next year at a nursery. I want my own from seeds.

  4. I'm not so sure about 72 hrs my friend! I find it start to kill and damage your microbes after aerated too long! 48 hrs wouldve been just fine but usually 24hrs is enough but hey that's just my opinion and 2 cents…..

  5. How long can you keep the unused tea & how often do you feed this to all plants? Thank you for the great video as well Have been seeing a lot of your videos.

  6. The compost is supposed to be in a bag and the aeration should have been 24 hours, not hour also this is all wrong the pump he's using isn't good and I wouldn't do a 5 gallon alot of problems happen with 5 gals, I recommend
    1. 32 gal plastic trash can
    2. At least a 1,500 gpm pump (60$ amazon)
    3.paint strainer bags, or compost bags
    4. Fertilizer, molasses,kelp, oyster shell power
    5. Leave the pump on for 24 hours when started
    6. Enjoy your healthy organic compost tea

  7. ok, i've not been organic in the past. i have a new verticle growing system and want to add earthworms to the sil. will this mixture get along with the earthworms?

  8. I wouldn't pour it directly on top of anything I am going to eat, like those leafy greens. Besides that, this is great. I just use a 5-gallon bucket without any pump or aeration. Works fine.

  9. Thank you so much! It’s amazing the many different ways there are for doing this. I would suggest you let us see you to make it more personal, but you have another subscriber!

  10. Compost tea has been proven ineffective over and over. In fact, the University of Arizona discovered it can be outright dangerous. This technique can breed salmonella and E. coli. In Korea it has even caused cholera epidemics. I advise you do some serious research before perpetuating this myth. If someone gets hurt, you could be held liable.

  11. I had mine in bags but ended up tipping everything in as I’m going to use watering can so chunks don’t matter. I used some honey because I didn’t have molasses and it’s foaming up nice. I used cow manure compost and kelp with the honey. I already have ph and ec meter so I’m curious to see the readings

  12. Thank you very much for posting this video. I wish your channel more progress and prosperity and continued communication, God willing. I am waiting for more useful videos. I hope there will be cooperation between our channels in the near future. Thank you again and waiting for your honor.
