What is worm tea good for?Worm tea provides loads of benefits to both your plants and your soil. Like fertilizers, worm tea can boost plant health and growth rate and produce a larger harvest of edible vegetables and fruit in your garden. Worm tea can also improve the structure and water retention abilities of your garden soil and helps strengthen plants’ immune systems, making them naturally better able to resist pests and pathogens. How often should I use worm tea?Worm tea can be used once every 2 weeks for most plants. For vegetable and fruiting plants that require more nutrients, worm tea can be used once a week. Can I use tap water for worm tea?You can use tap water to make your worm tea, but you need to let it sit for 12 to 24 hours prior to use. This will reduce the chlorine levels in the water, which may otherwise harm the beneficial microbes in your worm tea.Can you give too much worm tea?No, unlike synthetic fertilizers that can burn plant tissue, worm tea is a gentle, all-natural product that can’t be overused. However, using more worm tea than you need won’t benefit your plants. Instead, conserve your worm castings by only using worm tea once every 1 to 2 weeks. Can you brew worm tea for too long?Yes. If you brew worm tea for too long, the beneficial microorganisms in your worm castings will use up all of the nutrients in your tea and die off. This will create an aerobic environment, and the resulting worm tea will smell bad and won’t be as beneficial for your plants. Is compost tea the same as worm tea?No, worm tea is a type of compost tea, but they are not the same thing. Compost tea is made by brewing finished compost in water, while worm tea is made by brewing vermicompost. SummaryIt's hard to go wrong with vermicomposting and worm tea. Your plants will love you! If you want to grow healthier plants with lusher leaves and more fruit, adding the right nutrients and microorganisms to your plants can be just the solution you’re looking for. While fertilizers can help, they can be pricey, and they may burn plant tissue or cause other problems if improperly applied. Worm casting tea, on the other hand, is very simple and inexpensive to make, gentle on plants, and provides plants with many of the nutrients they need.While worm casting tea can be made with prebought castings, for a more budget-friendly option, you can also create your own worm bin and start farming vermicompost worms.
