Organic Grow & Bloom Enhancer
In every square inch of soil, there are billions of active microbes that make up a complex community of organisms living in and around the roots of plants. The soil food web is a series of conversions of energy and nutrients between microbes. When organism decomposes complex materials, or consume other organisms, the nutrients are converted and are made available to plants and to other soil organisms. High amounts liquid and synthetic fertilizers can be detrimental to living organisms when applied to your soil. Reintroducing living microbes found in compost can help rebuild your soils food web.
Xtreme Tea brews are easy to use, quick, effective means of adding life back into your soil. It can be applied as an instant extractor as a brewed compost tea in an aerated brewer. Simply pour the brewed tea around the base of the plant once a week. The microbes around the root zone begin rapidly breaking down nutrients into a form your plant can use right away. With more nutrients and minerals available, your plants can grow stronger and faster!
