Worm Tea – 1 gal.

$6.00

OurWorm Tea is one of our most popular products, an infusion produced by steeping water in our purest worm castings for a period of 3 days by means of an aeration process that preserves and enhances the power of the liquid’s beneficial microorganisms.  We then bottle the liquid, which looks very much tea.  But don’t drink it:  it’s for plants, not people!

OurWorm Tea is available in gallon sizes, though special orders of larger amounts can be arranged.  A returnable bottle deposit of $1 is charged with each gallon.

Description

Though nitrogen-rich, worm tea can be fed directly onto plants without fear of burning.  This is because, like OurCompost™, OurWorm Tea  is low in inorganic Nitrogen (NH₄ and NO₃), but high in organic Nitrogen (N₂).  OurWorm Tea is also rich in phosphate, calcium, magnesium and potash.  Like OurCompost™, it works by promoting the growth of mycorrhizae, a symbiotic association between fungi and the roots of vascular plants, resulting in enormously improved root growth.
