Compost tea

Compost tea

A compost tea, as we call it, is a liquid extract of bio humus. It is very suitable for foliar fertilization and watering directly into the root system of the plant.

In order to do it at home, you will need: One package 100% BIOHUMUS Terra Viva 3L, 10 liters of water, 50 ml molasses and air pump (aquarium pumps suit well).

Step 1: Place 10L of water in a suitable container. It is compulsory not to use fresh water if it has been treated with chlorine. You could either use spring or rain water.

Step 2: Dissolve the molasses in warm water and add it in the container. It serves as food for microorganisms that are created in the process of aeration.

Step 3: Add humus and mix well.

Step 4: Set the air pump and turn it on.

The prepared mixture should be aerated from 24 to 48 hours and stirred occasionally. Percolate the liquid and use a suitable sprayer. The mixture should be used within 48 hours after preparation, because after this period beneficial microorganisms are dying.
