I have made a few Bubbled Teas with Dr Earth Kelp, Dr Earth Alfalfa, Ahimsa Neem Meal, Wriggle Worm worm castings, Azomite, Stubb's Natural Charcoal Briquettes, a whole Aloe Leaf; Grandma's unsulphured Molasses, Neptune's Harvest Fish & Kelp Hydrolysate, Dyna Gro Silica Pro Tekt, Peat Humus, Extreme Gardening Azos, and Fungi Perfecti Endo/Ecto Myco mix for seedlings. EVERYTHING except the Fungi Perfecti mix and Neem Meal should be sourceable locally. I ordered the mix, and Neem meal online. ANY BRAND WILL WORK(charcoal needs to be a chemical free brand), Homemade/Gathered Sources are better.
I use: 1/8 of a cup each the kelp, alfalfa, Azomite, Neem Meal; 4 Charcoal Briquettes, soaked and broken down to powder and chunks; 2 Tablespoons of Molasses; 1 ounce of Fish & Kelp hydrolysate; 1/2 ounce of Pro Tekt; 3 cups peat humus; 1 tablespoon Azos mixed with 1 Teaspoon Myco mix,=; 1 Aloe Leaf, juiced/macerated above the bucket of water; a 5 gallon bucket; a 4 hose aquarium air pump, 2 large Cylindrical Air stones,; and 2 short rectangular air stones. The charcoal, peat humus, and Azos are my additions to the list, I personally think the Bacterium in Azos is super neat, do some research People!!!
My air stones Don't Gunk up that badly, I have the pump sitting right above the bucket, with no excess tubing, only about 3 feet between pump and stone
The original source I got my recipe from states that between hour 6 and 8 of bubbling; any water soluble hormones, and minerals will be available, also the micro organism spores begin to emerge from dormancy.
Between hours 12 and 17 the water is a Bacterially Dominated Environment.
hours 18-23 is a shift towards Fungal Dominance. Hours 24-48 are fungally Dominated.
Strain through some pantyhose before you spray so you don't clog your sprayer.
You can add the Azos and Myco mix after the brewing is done. the Dr Earth brand has Myco mix in it, I just like to have a large variety.
Compost the solids when done! they make a great compost accelerator when you're starting your pile!!!
I Made the 6 hour Tea for a Powdery Mildew Treatment for my aunt's Squash and Zucchini. I was so impressed with how healthy they became that I applied it to everything, EVEN THE LAWN!
I just added it together, and the cost for all my supplies was around 200 Dollars. the pump was 40, the bucket was 2, the stones and tubing were 8, So, 150 dollars for a Years worth of applications to lawn and garden, with leftovers. I purchased the 2.2 pound boxes of dr earth products, 30 pound bag of castings, 10 pound bag of azomite, and 32 ounce bottles of the hydrolysate and pro tekt.
You can grow your own alfalfa and dry it, collect Seaweed while fishing if it isn't prohibited, toss fish in the compost, compost Diatomaceous Earth, culture your own inoculant/get it from other sources, among other things to get the same similar, or better results, But I am just sharing my brands for anyone who wants to know specifically what I used. Also I am not affiliated with any company, I Just like being thorough.
