Hi

Can somebody suggest a little easy way to make compost tea? I can't handle too many technical things(aquarium set up etc.) due to lack of space.

Easy compost tea--

 

take 5 kg compost(go for the best available one, check the color should be black or dark brown, or mix brown & black ones) in a large bucket, add 7 litre of water. Steer the composition well. Keep in sun leave it for 2-3 days. Keep sterring as much as possible in 5-6 hrs. Add some sugar to feed the organisms, add humic acid(optional).. Dilute the solution as per your need & apply to the roots & leaves of all plants..

 

regards,

FGSmile

Here is a nice article on Compost tea. It is called "Ecology of compost tea" by Catherine Crosby.

http://docs.google.com/viewer?.....7YQKRReR6A

I have been using vermicompost as a fermented tea method. It has given good results on my hibiscus plant (it's controling mealy bugs) and Nadhiyavattai plant (in controling leaf eaters). I also tried cowdung manure based compost by the same fermenting method. It brings up nice foliage growth and aids in flowering and i see the plant more rich greeny.

Also I growing a type of green spinach type called "Cylone Pasalai Keerai" in tamil. After couple of days using these teas, I harvested it for cooking and found that the taste of this improved to be very delicious.

enjoy!
