What Is Worm Tea?
Also called worm casting tea, vermicompost tea, or worm compost tea, it is an all-natural liquid fertilizer that is made from steeping worm castings (worm manure) in water. In this way the nutrients in the worm castings are extracted into the water and the resulting “tea” is used for watering and nourishing plants.
Why tea? Rather than spreading handfuls of worm castings across a large area (not cost effective), worm casting tea is an effective way to “stretch out” the worm castings to cover more area and to allow for easy application (simply water the plants).
Package includes: 4×6 inches 5 disposable tea bags, crinkle paper.
Ingredients: 100% worm castings, kelp, brown sugar.
Directions of use: Do not open the bag! It is ready for use. Place 1 bag of worm tea into 1 gallon (4.5 L) jar. Use ONLY rain or filtered water, no tap water! Let it steep for 24 hours. Stir occasionally. Once the water turns light brown, signalling your tea is brewed, strain any stray castings out and pour into a watering can or spray bottle. Use it all shortly after on your household plants or in the garden.
Note: For best results, place an aerator (can be picked up at your local pet store) and aerate worm tea for 24 hours (air pump is NOT included).
Storage: Store in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight. Dry worm tea bags should be used within a year.
Recommendations: For the best results of worm tea, limit applications to once every 2 weeks for most plants and once a week for vegetables and fruits.
