Does horsetail tea / BD prep 508 effect all fungi or somehow magically just bad molds in the soil? I got 1000 liters of compost tea brewing and I was going to add 20 liters of the horsetail tea during the last hour of the brew.
BUT I have the greatest yield of fairy ring edible wild mushrooms ever in this history of yields in my yard and there flushing pounds of it every 2 weeks. I don't want to kill what's turning hay into soil like nobodies business and feeding me flat out just to help plants with transpiration, damping off and general anti fungal health.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
