No-Mess Instant Compost Tea

by Charlie Nardozzi


Compost tea is widely used by gardeners to boost plant growth, build soil humus, and increase soil microbial activity. The latest trend in compost teas is brewing the tea aerobically to get the right mix of microorganisms to benefit your plants. However, making compost tea can be cumbersome and messy.

Now there’s a new product that claims to offer some of the same humus-building properties of liquid compost tea, but in a dried form. Huma Blend (2-0-12) is essentially a dried compost tea that can be rehydrated and sprayed on fruits, vegetables, flowers, and even houseplants. Simply dilute the concentrate in water and apply it to your plants. The humic acids in Huma Blend are derived from seaweed, yucca, fish protein, and a naturally occurring mineral called Leonardite.
