Our family upgraded composters this winter to this beauty
, and I already have a half gallon of "compost tea" ready for use. I want to use the juice on my indoor herb garden and some okra I am growing in a pot.
There is much discussion in compost forums about compost tea and how to apply it to gardens and lawns, but not much clarity that I could find about indoor use or direct application to plants. I want to make good use of the tea but not overwhelm my plants. For those who have used compost tea, what have you found success (or hardship) with? Can I use it undiluted to fully replace watering? How often can/should I apply it?
