Use Compost Tea for Healthy Marijuana Plants
By now most of you have heard, how brewing compost tea can do wonders for your marijuana plants. If you haven’t heard about yet, it’s time for you to take notice!
Compost Tea is a water-based environment wherein beneficial microorganisms are extracted from compost or vermicompost (worm compost) and multiplied by the millions.
Some form of agitation breaks the microbes free from the compost and they multiply because food like, kelp meal, black-strap molasses, humic acid, etc. has been added to the water, which at least one type of microbe digests. When one or more type of microbe begins to multiply in response to the food, other microbes respond to this growth and begin to consume these initial microbes and multiply in turn and so on and so on.
During the brewing process, air is forced through a mixture of the high-quality compost and food suspended in water. The oxygen and nutrients produce an extraordinary explosive growth of bacteria and fungi. This growth of bacteria and fungi fights for and increases the amount of healthy bacteria in the growing medium.
Here's a list of some of the benefits from using Compost Tea:
ü Helps extend root systems
ü Increases water and nutrient retention
ü Creates healthier plants
ü Helps breakdown toxins in the soil and on the plants
ü Enhances the taste of fruits and vegetables
ü Reduces or eliminates the need for chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers
ü Occupies the space around the infection sites so disease-causing organisms cannot penetrate into the tissues of the plant
ü Is 100% safe and natural
