So basically I have a question, I know compost teas will feed and multiply beneficial bacteria and fungi my question is could I add mykos and maybe another fungal bacteria dominant blend bubble it and inoculate my soil even more than if I just mixed into water. Also if so do you think that would hurt the biodiversity of the soil by letting a few things take over to much?

Most of the soluble mycorhizal products say to agitate in water for several minutes and then apply, I think it is because the mycorhizae need living roots to survive so you just want the spores/propogules awakened and then put into a root zone. I think that the fungi cultivated in aerated compost tea are just general soil fungi that live freely eating on soil detritus. Even they have a hard time propagating in actively aerated compost teas as the agitation breaks hyphae easily. I've been told.that fungal vigor peaks at about 18 hours in a simple bubbler set up, maybe a bit different of using a vortex or some other system.
