Do not apply in direct sunlight or when temperature is over 80 F (27 C).

2 tsp. Insect Frass per gallon water for microbial diversity and fungal food
Actively aerate tea for 24 hours for aerobic benefits.
For anaerobic teas, stop aeration after 24 hours and let sit for 48 additional hours.
Hydroponic Nutrient Base:
1/2 cup per gallon water. Keep pH within 5 - 7 range. If using RO water, supplement Calcium & Iron
