Maximize Cannabis Harvest: Expert Tips to Fertilize Cannabis Plants!

A compost tea brewer can take advantage of a more straightforward process for rapid growth indoors and outdoors. Using products like the SimPro formula can help you along the way.

Using SimPro Formula For DIY Compost Tea Brewer

First, you need A 5-gallon jug or container filled with 3 gallons of Reverse Osmosis water. Whatever container you use, leave enough room for the foam build-up. After some time, the mix will react, and foam will increase as more oxygen’s introduced. 

A decent air pump will work. The ecoplus brand makes a good product, and worth checking out a double-port air pump like the ecoplus two-port

You’ll need an airstone to add the bubbles. I use an ecoplus medium airstone with a quarter-inch outside diameter air hose.

The special sauce used to make the magic tea is SimPro Vegetation Formula. Simpro Everything from Yucca, Humates, Seaweed, Microbes, Amino Acids, and Silica. Add a tablespoon per gallon, and Boom! You’re good to go.

To start the party, you want to connect the airstone to the air hose. Then connect your air hose to the air pump. 

Place the air stone in our container and plug in the air pump. You should see bubbles letting you know things are looking good. 

With your tablespoon scooper, measure three tablespoons of SimPro Vegetation formula and drop it into the container. 

That’s IT… For Now!

Maximizing the Benefits of Compost Tea: The 24-Hour Rule

Compost tea, a rich, organic brew teeming with beneficial microorganisms, is a powerful tool in any gardener’s arsenal. These microbial superheroes tirelessly nourish plants, enrich soil structure, and prevent plant diseases. But did you know there’s a time limit to harness their peak power?

That’s right; the clock starts ticking when your compost tea brewing process finishes. This is because the beneficial microbes in the tea proliferate during aeration, reaching their zenith in population within 24-48 hours post-brew. This period is the “golden hour” for your compost tea when its efficacy is at its peak.

If You Delay Too Long

The delay in use leads to a micro-ecological shift in your brew. The thriving microorganisms gradually consume all available nutrients and start cannibalizing, reducing their population. As a result, the longer you wait to post this period, the less beneficial your compost tea becomes.

So, what’s the magic number? Aim to use your compost tea within the first 24 hours after brewing to ensure maximum potency and give your plants the best boost.

If circumstances don’t allow immediate use, keep the tea aerated to prolong the life of the beneficial microbes. But remember, even with the best aeration, the effectiveness of compost tea will eventually decline. As with many good things in life, freshness counts. This means promptly using your freshly brewed compost tea to nourish your plants and soil.

Magic Compost Tea Brewer 15 Hours Later

I like to apply 32-64 oz of water and no more for a 5-gallon pot. The only time I’ll add more than 64oz of water per pot is if I dont see any runoff. Then I’ll add 32oz more of my magic mix until I know a bit of runoff. I’ll perform this process once a week up to 3times a week, depending on the growth stage. 

24 Hours After The SimPro Compost Tea Brewer Feeding

It has been 24 hours since I fed her, and they look beautiful. Rich in color from yesterday and a shine only good natural feeding can provide. I’ll add another feeding in a few days, followed by a series of plain watering.
