Chapter 5. Methods of use - Wayne's microbe rich 100% organic plant foods.
Processed from a grade A+ worm casting that I especially farm for the purpose of making my plant food the selections available can be applied using several methods of which following as according to the selection type are some of the methods at which to implement this user friendly worm casting product as a food source for your plants.
1. Microbe brew tablets: Purposed for the objective of a plant food source using a direct application of propagating microbe organisms produced by the balanced based stock of organisms contained in a microbe brew tablet by "brewing" the tablet over a period of time in order to increase the massiveness of the dose applied at the time of plant feeding. see how to make a microbe brew for instructions on how to actually make a microbe brew using Wayne's microbe rich 100% organic microbe brew tablets.
After completing your brew some application methods are as follows keeping in mind that the soil will have have to be somewhat moist in order to maintain the microbes:
A. Plants house and outdoor.
1. Slightly moisten container soil if dry before applying brew.
2. apply approximately 2-3 shot full glasses of the brew to containers 1.5 gallon and less and approximately 4-5 shot full glasses of brew to containers larger than 1.5 gallon and less than 3 gallon.
You could simply saturate the soil without the concern of hurting your plants but with house plants you may not necessarily want a vigorous growth such as with a fruit bearing plant; that massive of a dose would not be necessary noting that the microbes will continue to propagate in the soil.
For containers larger than 3 gallons use the amount necessary to saturate the soil 1/4 to a 1/2" deep and then water to saturate/moisten the rest of the soil keeping in mind that the more microbes that are planted the more the center points from which the microbes will continue to propagate the microbe population currently present.
B. Fruit bearing plants and trees to include other than fruit bearing trees. For the most part the objective sought for in a fruit bearing plant or tree is to produce a larger fruit with the appropriate care usually compensating for soil deficiencies when rendering this care using various forms of amendments to include chemical and natural fertilizers of which several if not most especially natural manures and chemicals when not used correctly can harm a plant so the limitations construed by such amendments would also limit the extent to which a producer can experiment with and strive for that larger fruit of which fortunately with the plant food that I produce the limitations are non existent so thereby are the boundaries of quantity experiments also dissolved leaving a producer/plant grower/farmer more leniency when trying to accomplish that larger fruit the only known limits are that as according to the actual potency of the nutrients produced by the microbes; thereby I construe that the more plant food the better when trying to accomplish a larger fruit once again limited only by the other environmental variables involved and some previously mentioned.
As follows are some recommended doses when applying a microbe brew to your regular trees and to your fruit bearing trees and plants.
Rather than defining the diameter size of a tree in the course of accommodating an appropriate dose of brew the trunk reference to be used will be that of:
1. Small Trees: One gallon of microbe brew solution placed around the trunk base.
2. Medium Trees: 2.5 gallons of microbe brew solution placed around the trunk base on each side of the tree = 5 gallons per tree.
3. Large Trees: 5 gallons of microbe brew solution placed around the trunk base on each side of the tree = 10 gallons per tree.
The dose applied can be added to or taken away from depending on the condition of the soil whether extremely packed and clogged for a good saturation into the soil surrounding the tree or whether loose and airy allowing for a non resistive saturation into the deeper parts of the soil; and also depending on the objective as to the preferred accomplishment of a larger plant and/or fruit remembering that the main idea is to saturate the soil with an ample amount of microbes to accommodate the larger plant life and also keeping in mind that they will continue to propagate in the soil.
In summary for the most part the dosage applied to either indoor or outdoor plants can be experimented with without the concerns of hurting your plants.
A Tip: You do not have to necessarily use 1 microbe brew tablet per gallon when brewing multiple gallons keeping in mind that the microbes propagate by splitting into two or more parts.
An ample dose for a 10 gallon microbe brew to compound a brew saturated heavily with microbes would be about 5 one gallon microbe brew tablets you could use fewer tablets or other microbe stock material but the microbe saturation would not be as heavy in a five day period as would the recommended 5 tablets per 10 gallons of brew or you could brew the concoction longer to allow for more microbe propagation or you could use existing microbes to re-continue a brew but there may come a period when the microbes per say get older and start to lose their potency a time period of which I am not sure of but am willing to lay odds according to some minor experiments a thirty day period would not be too long.
Sometimes I myself use a 35 gallon trash can to make my microbe brew of which as according to the time frames mentioned you could use 17 or less tablets to concoct a 35 gallon brew that you can centrally feed your plants from. Keep in mind anything over a one week brew will more than likely have to have an air source added to it to keep other unwanted microbes from forming.
Another Tip: use a hose attached bottle feeder to spread microbes thru out your yard. Any measurable on board nutrients such as the 1% nitrogen confirmed by science may become diluted but the microbes themselves will be planted and will continue to do their work in your yards soil.
2. Powdered. Purposed as a user friendly worm casting product which can be used as per the instructions on the back label at one packet per gallon - shake well and then water your plants trees as usual and the powdered form of the casting product will seep into the porous area of the soil.
The same watering schedule shown with the microbe brew tablets should be used on trees at one packet per gallon of water or you could also brew the powder at about 2-3 packets per 5 gallon of mixture but the brew tablets would prove to be more cost feasible At 2-3 tablets per 5 gallons of water.
3. Turd: Purposed as a user friendly quick acting worm casting product which can be used as per the instructions on the back label at one kidney bean size pinch per 1/2 gallon of water - shake well and then water your plants as usual and the diluted mix will be absorbed into the soil and the undiluted particles will seep into the porous areas of the soil and begin their work from therein. Recommend slurry first for a better dilution into the water.
The same watering schedule shown with the microbe brew tablets should be used on trees at two kidney beans per gallon of water or you could also brew the "turd" material at about 4-6 kidney bean size chunks per 5 gallon of mixture but the brew tablets would prove to be more cost feasible At 2-3 tablets per 5 gallons of water.
Some other concepts of use:
1. Powdered version as an inline food source for farm fields with large watering systems. Perhaps gravity fed coupled inline.
2. Microbe brew tablets/pellets of various size scattered in a farm field while plowing for farms that rely on rainfall as a watering system which should in turn amend a farm field for a growing season as long as their is some rainfall or other water source and also as thus far summarized dependent on the actual pellet size.
3. Microbe brew tablets/pellets of various size scattered in a farm field while plowing for farms that would like to fortify the nutrition content of their soil with this concept in addition to the inline watering system.
4. Turd piece in an auto dispenser that connects to garden hose and sprinkler for lawns and small farms. ( I actually have a prototype of this that I use in my own yard and am considering manufacturing some for sale. Be sure to check back now and then if interested.)
5. Microbe solution filled into a watering truck to treat large areas.
6. Turd solution filled into a watering truck to treat large areas.
7. If I think of any more I will get back to you via my blog.
Other than some cost variants that may be involved I see nothing but positive results subsequent from the concepts mentioned above that is treating the soil with a naturally occurring element that will help to maintain a plant, lawn or farm field as well as the ecosystem of all the appendages that may involved with the inclusion of a matter into the soil.
The end ?
