    Default Banana peel fertilizer anyone?

    Just for something different, I will dilute that liquid after its been sitting 12 hours with 2L water.

    The theory is a bloom boosting dose of K Organic style

    Happy for feedback is its bullshit chaps lol

    Much better fermented Gaz, and you’ll ferment it quicker using LAB, and while your at it add a couple other little bit like butternut squash and I use papaya and you got the the same bloom fertiliser as me mate.
    Also now the time to make your veg/growth fertiliser while the plants outside are vegging too!
    Fish is another great one for the oils brother.

    Will the one Ive made me do ok though mate?

    Be good for guys not ready to ferment if you gave this your seal of approval that it will work just maybe not as well as fermenting


    I have nothing else at hand right now, figures it would still be ok. I will plant some butternut squash this year.

    Many thanks brother

    It should be fine mate, I’ve not done it this way but I reckon you’ll be good! Just bury it a little so you don’t attract the fruit flies!
    I have done this with comfrey leaf though then I realised how quick it broke down by itself lol

    You should make your own lacto serum. Easy as pie. I have a few links if you want them. Then you can easily do any fermented extract.

    Few days into my batch.

    This is how Ive finished for the guys wanting a quick n dirty easy organic bloom feed.

    Run out of nutes or something then anyone could do this.

    Just whisked up and diluted to 2.25 L

    So to summarise,,

    As Redz said fermenting is deffo the best option but this will work and do the job if you want something quick amd easy to do.

    Got me thinking here mate,
    I’m wondering what this actually brings to the soil/plant without being fermented?
    Don’t say fruit flies please lol

    Another thing Gaz , do you think you might be able to find papers on enzyme levels and,or diastatic power in different malted grains, I’m about to swap out malted barley for malted rye as I believe it’s got the highest phosphatase levels in all the grains and we know why I want phosphatase in flowering brother
    Soon mate
