Worm Tea on Houseplants & Outdoor Plants
Making worm tea is really just a process of steeping nutrients out of worm castings.
An old pillowcase makes a useful worm casting "tea bag".
A day before, prefill your bucket with tap water.
Once your water has rested for 12 to 24 hours, fill your nylon stocking or woven bag with 5 to 6 cups of worm castings.
Allow the worm castings to steep in the water for 24 hours.
Then tie the bag tightly, making certain that all of the worm castings are well contained.
Now, drop the bag with your worm castings into your water and give it a quick stir.
Worm casting tea can be used as a soil fertilizer or a foliar spray.
Worms are the wonder of the gardening world. They do great work for us and give us great fertilizers.
It's hard to go wrong with vermicomposting and worm tea. Your plants will love you!
By brewing a small quantity of worm castings in water, you can get much more worm tea to water your houseplants and garden with. This translates into savings for you and more nutrient-rich worm tea for your plants!
