OhighO started grow question 3 years ago
Feeding with Aurora Innovations TERP TEA. And making a tea out of it. I’m using one TBSP per gallon of water and about 1/3 TBSP of molasses per gallon then I am bubbling for 24 hours. How do I know weather my plants could use more nutrients? Could I up the Terp tea to 1.5 TBSP?

You would know if your plant is showing deficiencies. I see a little nute burn on the tips of your leaves so they seem to be getting enough. With dry amendments I usually top dress, then mix into the top layer of soil and water. I do teas with earth worm casting, kelp meal and compost with organic no sulphur molasses. I’ve never seen this stuff before but looking interesting as the direction say you can bubble it. I wouldn’t add anymore as I see the burn on the tips of the leaves.

hey there, the organic tea you're making is actually pretty damn strong already, thing is as it's not synthetic you wont "see it" explode in your soil. It'll take a few days if not a week to start really juicing up in there, and the risk is by adding more you risk over doing it. I would say stick to the instructions, but if you've already done it with less, do it again with just that bit less you know... for teas it's better to go with the full dose, but only once because they contain bacteria spores that have some sort of critical mass required to get the desired effects, and dont forget to water them at lights off when you do add the tstuff : the light fries the microbes you brewed ! hope this helps ! :rocket:

It's not wether it can use more or not. It's wether it needs more. Does it show any deficiency? If yes up the feeding, if it shows signs of nute excess or burn, feed less; else, keep feeding as you are doing. Planta aren't pigs that need to be fattened.
