They don't ( or shouldn't) really smell much, not strong or funky in my experience.Well this Teas section could use a little action!
Hey @Eyes on Fire what do you recommend for a nice brew for starting seeds, something to inoculate the soil and give it a good jump start while being beneficial for a seedling?
Also, I want to get going on brewing asap. My tent is up and I am about ready to go. What is the best cheapish option for brewing small batches? just a 5 gal bucket and airstone? I was looking at buildasoil site and they have 5 gallon compost tea brewer with a pump for 125$. Seems like I could build one much cheaper? But I want something that is gonna be reliable and do the job.
So is a bucket and airstone good enough? and do I just measure out the ingredients and throw em all in? or use some type of tea bag for the stuff?
Also, my better half is worried about funky tea brew smells. I told her it won't be that bad, not to worry LOL I have no idea though really.....prob gonna smell pretty funky I would guess....
Hey if you've got a light saber than that's good enough for me! The more I learn about growing organically the more I wonder why more people don't make the switch. And it is a lot more interesting as far as learning about botany and how to replicate a true living environment for a plant to thrive in indoors.I am no tea Yoda but they let me carry a light saber. Kelp, EWC are good. Molasses is great soil food. Buy it.
If you want to put blue-green algae in there go for it as I have no idea either way. Either you're a pioneer or it will make you sick.
