I have been wondering that because the leachate kills my house plants when I add too much, and not outdoor plants, then why?
I have just also found this from a gardening website. The post was written by someone who seems to know a lot about things. She explains a lot. She had this to say:
"Ok, hang on a minute, let's take a few steps back. Believe it or not, leachate and tea, based on peer reviewed RESEARCH, can and often do have essentially equal value to garden plants in terms of growth response. Shall I repeat that? Leachate and tea, according to research, can have an equally beneficial impact on plant growth.
Now to better explain:
The problem with leachate is not that it contains less nutrient (in fact, it often contains more soluble nutrients than does tea), the problem is that leachate can also contain alochol, phenols and terpenes
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
