100g > Paper Pellets.
40g > Spent Tea.
Basic cooking guide:
Get a bowl with lid, add the tea, flour and any additives, mix together.
Now add your measured hot boiling water and mix again.
Add 200g of water for the basic microwave cook.
Add the mixture to the dry paper pellets.
Mix and mash with a fork, or vegetable masher.
Place the lid on but with a small gap.

So far when using the TGF-Tek, I have never pressure cooked, and assembled it open air.
You can consider this a bonus, I still suggest a short pressure cook regardless.
I suggest leaving the substrate to cool for 4 hours after microwaving.
The substrate will crumble which makes assembly easier.

Properties of tea: Catechins, Tannins, Theaflavins, Theanine.

36 Natural alternatives for infection, some can be used.

Here I am using WL-Tek spawn, at the bottom, to WL-Tek. As normal, new growth in less than 18 hours.

I also took images of my unmodified container, they can be pressure cooked with no tab.

Here is my enrichment tek, which you can bottle and keep in a fridge. Dilute "X" amount with "Y" amount of water.

You can use my substrate water content guide to calculate the amount of water content needed.


You can also do the TGF-Tek with 25% enriched fluids and 75% water.

The MG soluble plant food is remarkably clean, although synthetic. But then yeast nutrient is also synthetic and plenty of people drink alcohol.

In this case the only product evil is that it's not organic, however there are plenty of organic plant foods, check the listed nutrients.


You can use my enrichment thread as a guide to find your own organic sources, even combined mixes.

Yes but would you rather drink a beer that's mass produced, owned by a foreign company, and comes from a company that just now decided to phase out their abuse of large marine mammals due solely to public pressure not because of it's inherent cruelty. (budweiser and sea world which is owned by budweiser)


or would you rather drink a beer produced by a local microbrewery that cares about it's workers, it's environmental impact, and it's product?

Maybe I misspoke. The producers of Miracle-Gro are hands down poisoning people, wildlife and the soil where our food comes from, not to mention honey bees and local pollinators. Which I find to be evil IMHO of course.


Scotts Miracle-Gro – the bird-killing company?
The Scotts Miracle-Gro company pleads guilty to knowingly selling poisoned birdseed, and lawn and garden care products containing undocumented pesticides, to an unsuspecting public

I recently heard about the most astonishing corporate crime: the American company, Scotts Miracle-Gro, violated US federal environmental laws by manufacturing and selling poisoned birdseed for more than two years. The Scotts Miracle-Gro company entered guilty pleas to all charges in U.S. District Court and these guilty pleas were accepted by Judge James Graham on Tuesday, 13 March 2012. Penalties have not yet been determined.


The Scotts Miracle-Gro company, based in Marysville, Ohio, USA, is the world's largest marketer of lawn and garden care products which are sold under a number of consumer brand names, including Scotts®, Miracle-Gro®, and Ortho®. In Europe, the company's brands include Weedol®, Pathclear®, Celaflor®, Evergreen®, Levington®, Miracle-Gro®, KB®, Fertiligene® and Substral®. Additionally, Scotts is Monsanto's exclusive agent for the marketing and distribution of consumer Roundup®. 6850905180_9cac29429e_m.jpg

In addition to lawn and garden care products, the Scotts Miracle-Gro company manufactures and distributes several widely-used and popular brands of food for wild birds, marketed under the names, "Country Pride" and "Morning Song", as well as "Scott's Songbird Selections" and "Scott's Wild Bird Food", which are collectively known as "Morning Song". These brand lines include bags of seed and seed mixes, suet blocks and other foods intended for wild birds.


Scotts Miracle-Gro added toxic chemicals to their bird seeds

According to court documents, the Scotts Miracle-Gro company added the pesticides, Storcide II and Actellic® 5E, to their wild bird feeds to prevent insects from consuming the products during storage. Neither pesticide is licensed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in bird foods. This is in direct violation of FIFRA -- the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.

Storcide II contains the active ingredient, chlorpyrifos-methyl, and Actellic® 5E contains the active ingredient, pirimiphos-methyl. According to the product label attached to Storcide II containers and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) information accompanying this pesticide, it is toxic to fish, birds and wildlife. Additionally, because the EPA requires precautionary language on labels for all products containing chlorpyrifos, those who worked directly with manufacturing the birdseeds should have known that use in birdseed was illegal, unless they were either illiterate or blind.

The EPA's fact sheet on pirimiphos-methyl states that "[a]lthough pirimiphos-methyl is highly toxic to birds and fish, these risks are not of concern based on the use pattern", indicating that this chemical is not intended to be applied to anything intentionally fed to birds.

Both chemical toxins act as cholinesterase inhibitors that result in overstimulation of the nervous system. Small doses of either poison cause symptoms that include nausea, dizziness, and confusion, and higher doses lead to respiratory paralysis and death.

Scotts Miracle-Gro knowingly sold poisoned birdseed

According to court documents, Scotts Miracle-Gro was warned about the toxicity of these chemicals by two employees. One employee, a pesticide chemist, approached management about these dangers in the summer of 2007, whilst the other employee, an ornithologist, notified management in the autumn of that same year. The Scotts Miracle-Gro company ignored these warnings and continued to produce and distribute their poisoned birdseed products for at least another six months, until March of 2008.

At the same time, a federal registrations manager employed by the Scotts Miracle-Gro company intentionally falsified pesticide registration documents for two other products sold by the company, "Scotts Garden Weed Preventer & Plant Food" and "Scotts Lawn Service Fertilizer With Halts". Neither of these products were registered with the EPA and thus, both were illegally sold to the public. When the EPA contacted the Scotts Miracle-Gro company asking for the required documents and certificates, the manager then "fabricated correspondence and agency documents ... in an effort to deceive EPA into believing it had registered these products but lost its files", according to court documents. The EPA then launched an investigation.

According to court documents, the Scotts Miracle-Gro company voluntarily disclosed to the EPA and the USDA that they had manufactured and sold poisoned birdseed, but discontinued doing so in March 2008.

After reading the court documents, it is my opinion that either the company or its employees volunteered this illegal use of chemical poisons in their birdseed because they expected that their wrongdoing would be discovered during the ensuing investigation. If adding these pesticides to the birdseed was an accident, warnings from their employees should have caused the company to immediately stop manufacturing their poisoned birdseed and issue a voluntary national recall of all contaminated items. However, neither of these actions occurred. Based on that information, one wonders whether the company would ever have voluntarily stopped adding poisons to their birdseed if the EPA had not stepped in to investigate the forged documents and illegal use of pesticides in their lawn care products?

According to court documents, Scotts Miracle-Gro sold more than 73 million packages of these poisoned bird foods nationwide to an unsuspecting public for a period of more than two years. Only 2 million of those 73 million units could be recalled.

But it would appear that not all sellers were aware of this product recall. I found one story about a San Diego county couple who lost nearly all of their domestic aviary birds at the end of January 2010 after feeding Scotts Miracle-Gro Morning Song Wild Bird Seed that they had recently purchased from a local Wal-Mart [story]. Out of a flock numbering nearly 100 birds, only eight survived. I mention this to illustrate how poisonous this seed is to birds, how many birds can die after eating just one meal of this poisoned seed, and to show that the damages caused by these products may still be occurring.

Scotts Miracle-Gro pleads guilty and proposes a plea deal

As part of the plea deal, the company would pay a fine of $4 million and give an additional $500,000 to help support wildlife study and preservation. Judge Graham has so far deferred making a decision on this proposed penalty, and the sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled. Under the law, civil violations are assessed fines of not more than $5,000 per offense whilst criminal violations of FIFRA are assessed fines of "not more than $50,000 per offense or imprisonment of not more than 1 year or both". If Scotts Miracle-Gro's plea proposal is accepted by the judge, I think it would be the maximum allowed under the law. Further, if these penalties are accepted by the judge, this decision may possibly be the highest ever levied under FIFRA. According to my sources, just the proposed $500,000 "donation" to environmental groups is "substantial" under this law.

But it is my opinion that neither of these penalties are substantial or severe enough. According to my calculations, even after paying the proposed fines, the company will have earned a profit from their sales of poisoned birdseed and lawn care products to an unsuspecting and trusting public. In fact, even if a penalty of $73 million -- merely $1 for each poisoned bird food item sold -- was levied against the company, Scotts Miracle-Gro will probably still earn a profit from sales of all their illegal products. For this reason, I view this penalty as a small slap on the wrist for the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, a publicly-traded company (NYSE: SMG) with an excess of $3 billion in annual worldwide sales.

Unfortunately, when an entire company engages in criminal activity, imprisonment is not normally an option. But in my opinion, the outrageously inflated salaries paid to corporate chairman and chief executive officer (Jim Hagedorn) and president (Barry Sanders), who were in those positions in 2008, should be justified by holding them personally and criminally liable when the company knowingly commits criminal acts under their leadership, since presumably, this is partially what these outsized salaries are intended to compensate them for.

It is my hope that the judge will ensure that the maximum fines and penalties will be levied against the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company. This is the least that can be done in view of this egregious betrayal of the public trust, the damage to the environment and the terrible loss of wild birds and other wildlife -- all due to the criminal activities of this corporate giant.

At this point, it is likely that the government's lawyers are feeling pretty good about this outcome: they got an admission of criminal liability and a record-setting monetary fine without the years of litigation and thousands of man-hours that a prosecution would require. Yet I can't help but wonder what millions of dead finches, sparrows, doves, cardinals and other songbirds might say about this, if only we could understand them.





Monsanto and Scotts Miracle-Gro Expand Partnership

2 years ago - Compiled by Staff

Monsanto Company and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company have extended their nearly two-decade long partnership in the lawn and garden consumer market.

Since 1999, Scotts Miracle-Gro, through one of its subsidiaries, has served as Monsanto’s exclusive agent for the marketing and distribution of Roundup non-selective herbicides in the consumer lawn and garden market within the United States and select international markets.

Today’s agreement will unlock additional value in the Roundup brand in the lawn and garden segment by providing Scotts with an extended license to use the Roundup brand in new lawn and garden product categories and broaden their marketing rights into new geographies, the companies report.

As part of the extension, Monsanto also renewed and expanded the terms of its marketing agreement with Scotts and provided preferred access to Monsanto’s research and development pipeline for lawn and garden.

“This agreement highlights the value of the Roundup brand and extends the relationship with a long-term, trusted partner,” says Kerry Preete, Monsanto executive vice president of Global Strategy. “It also further demonstrates our commitment to our broad licensing strategy.”

Under the agreement, Scotts will pay Monsanto a one-time upfront payment of $300 million in exchange for a Roundup brand license, extended agency agreement and technology agreement.




Monsanto is secretly poisoning the population with Roundup


NaturalNews) Dr. Andreas Carrasco remained in the locked car and watched with fear as the crowd beat the vehicle and shouted at him -- for two hours. His friends who didn't make it into the vehicle were not so lucky. One ended up paralyzed. Another unconscious. The angry crowd of about 100 were likely organized by a local rice grower who was furious at Carrasco for what he was trying to do that day. Carrasco's crime? Telling people that Roundup herbicide from Monsanto causes birth defects in animals, and probably humans.

Carrasco is a leading embryologist at the University of Buenos Aires Medical School and the Argentinean national research council. He had heard the horrific stories of peasant farmers working near the vast fields of Roundup Ready soybeans -- plants genetically engineered to withstand generous doses of Monsanto's poisonous weed killer. The short-term impact of getting sprayed was obvious: skin rashes, headaches, loss of appetite, and for one 11 year old Paraguayan boy named Silvino Talavera, who biked through a fog of herbicides in 2003, death. But Carrasco also heard about the rise of birth defects, cancer, and other disorders that now plagued the peasants who were sprayed by plane. He decided to conduct a study.

Exposing Roundup's 30 year cover-up of birth defects

Carrasco injected minute amounts of Roundup into chicken and frog embryos, and sure enough, the offspring exhibited the same type of birth deformities that the peasant communities were seeing in their newborns. A report by the provincial government of Chaco soon followed, confirming that those living near soy and rice fields sprayed with Roundup and other chemicals did in fact have higher rates of birth defects -- nearly a fourfold increase between 2000-2009. (Child cancer rates tripled during the same period.)

Regulatory agencies had given Roundup a green light years before, claiming that it was free of such problems. However after Carrasco's findings were published, European authorities quietly pushed their official re-assessment of Roundup, due in 2012, back to 2015. And the German Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety, charged with responding to Carrasco's findings, issued a statement claiming that the Argentine scientist must be mistaken; earlier studies conducted by manufacturers of Roundup (including Monsanto) had already demonstrated that Roundup does not cause birth defects.

But in June 2011, a group of international scientists released a report detailing a massive cover-up that went back to the 1980s. The very industry studies cited by the German Consumer Protection office in fact showed just the opposite. Roundup did increase birth defects. Using scientific sleight of hand, Europe's regulators had ignored statistically significant increases in birth defects, and so did every other regulatory agency worldwide. Monsanto has relied on these misleading statements of safety by regulators ever since, using them to deny that Roundup causes birth defects.

Monsanto secretly poisoning the population, again and again

Covering up toxic effects of their products was not new for Monsanto. They're experts at it. In 2003 the company paid $700 million in settlements for secretly poisoning the population living next to their PCB factory in Anniston, Alabama. Court documents showed the arrogance of Monsanto executives made aware of the product's effects: "We can't afford to lose $1 of business," was the written response in a secret company memo.

Leaked documents also revealed that EPA scientists had charged Monsanto with fraudulently hiding the toxic effects of Agent Orange -- effectively preventing Vietnam veterans from collecting compensation for cancer, birth defects, and other symptoms of exposure.

When Carrasco first reported his findings, he got the usual treatment. His results were vehemently denied, and he was attacked in the press by biotech advocates. Four highly aggressive men showed up at his office and tried to interrogate him, but he wasn't physically attacked. Not until he tried to give a speech on his results in the small Argentine farm town of La Leonesa on August 7, 2010. That was unusual.

Punishing messengers worldwide

When Dr. Irina Ermakova came to her office, the meaning of the charred remains of papers on her desk was unambiguous -- it was yet another attempt to intimidate or punish her. So was the theft of samples from her laboratory, and the continuous verbal attacks by biotech advocates. Her crime? She fed rats genetically modified Roundup Ready soy, and reported the results.

Those results were clearly not what the sellers of GM soy wanted us to hear. After female rats were fed GM soy, more than half their babies died within three weeks. The rat pups were also considerably smaller, and in a later experiment, were unable to reproduce. Offspring from mothers fed non-GM soybeans, on the other hand, died at only a 10% rate, and were able to mate successfully.

Journal ambushes scientist

After Ermakova presented the results as "preliminary" at an October 2005 conference, the biotech industry's damage control teams kicked into high gear. At the center of the coordinated attack was the editor of the journal Nature Biotechnology and four biotech advocates. According to Ermakova, the editor contacted her and told her he was going to include a description of her study as a sort of essay in the journal. She was then asked to summarize her research over the phone, or if she preferred, in writing. Ermakova, a senior scientist at the Russian Academy of Sciences, was surprised by the request and asked instead to properly submit the findings for peer review and publication. Oh no, the editor insisted, he just wanted a summary. She sent it in, and the journal sent Ermakova back a proof of the article, with her named as the author.

But that was just a "dummy proof." What was actually published was quite different. Instead of an essay, the journal had inserted scathing criticisms from the four biotech advocates after nearly every paragraph. Many of Ermakova's citations were also stripped off and replaced with those chosen by the biotech detractors -- to weaken her case. It was an academic lynch mob, conducted by four biotech apologists: Bruce Chassy, Vivian Moses, Val Giddings, and Alan McHughen. All acknowledged that they had no personal experience in the type of research they were condemning, but that didn't stop them from throwing every type of challenge they could think of at Ermakova.

The purpose of the attack was transparent. It allowed the biotech industry to claim from that point forward that the study showing high death rates was officially refuted and discredited. It also served as a warning: if anyone wanted to defend Ermakova (or do similar research) they too would be mercilessly attacked.

The problem was that nearly all their criticisms were utterly baseless. About 75 % of their arguments, for example, were simply complaints that she didn't provide sufficient detail. Now remember -- she was told to only provide a summary. Her request to the editor to submit complete details was denied. It was quite a setup. When the details of this ambush were made public, independent scientists charged Nature Biotechnology with an unethical "premeditated attack." At least one letter called on the editor to resign.

It didn't happen. Instead, international pressure against Ermakova got so intense, her boss told her not to do any more studies on GMOs. One of her colleagues even tried to comfort her by suggesting that perhaps the GM soy could solve the human overpopulation problem. (She wasn't comforted.)

Real life confirms research: GM soy = high infant mortality for rats

The main valid criticism against Ermakova's research was that she failed to conduct a biochemical analysis of the feed. Without that, we don't know if some rogue toxin present in the bag of soy flour might have been responsible for the astonishing death rate and stunted growth in her experiment. But subsequent events at her laboratory suggest otherwise.

After Ermakova repeated the test three times with similar results, the supplier of rat food used at the facility began using GM soy in the formulation. With all the rats now eating GM soy, Ermakova couldn't conduct any more experiments (she had no controls). After two months, however, she asked her colleagues at the lab about the mortality rate in their rat experiments. It turned out that 99 of 179 (55.3%) rat pups whose parents were fed GM soy-based rat chow had died within the first 20 days. Thus, whatever caused the high death rate does not appear to be confined to the one batch of GM flour used in her experiment. Both the study, and the subsequent laboratory-wide mortality rate, are published in the Russian peer-reviewed journal Ecosinform.

Horrific reproductive disorders

Other studies on Roundup Ready soy also show scary reproductive problems. Ermakova showed that the testicles of rats fed GM soy changed from the normal pink to blue (not published). Peer-reviewed research from Italy also showed changes in mice testicles, including alterations in young sperm cells. A Brazilian team found changes in the uterus and ovaries of female rats. The DNA of mice embryos functioned differently, compared to those whose parents were fed non-GM soy. And when hamsters were fed GM soy for two years, by the third generation, most lost the ability to have babies. The offspring grew at a slower rate and the infant mortality rate was 4-5 times that of the non-GM soy group. Many also had hair growing in their mouths.

When the Austrian government tested Roundup Ready corn (which was also engineered to produce an insecticide), mice had fewer – and smaller – babies.

It's not possible to know if the reproductive damage was due to the genetic changes in the GM crops, the high residues of Roundup in the GM soybeans and corn, or some other reason. But the American Academy of Environmental Science is among the medical organizations that don't need more animal studies before issuing a warning. They urge all doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets to everyone.

Omnipresent Roundup literally falls from the sky

Although eliminating Roundup Ready soy and corn from our diet will certainly reduce our intake of Roundup, a recent study suggests that getting our exposure down to zero is not possible. In the Midwest during the growing season, Roundup is found in 60–100% of air and rain samples, as well as in streams.

The omnipresence of Roundup in the US is due in large part to the more than 100 million acres of Roundup Ready crops. As farmers pour on Monsanto's weed killer, weeds are learning to adapt and withstand the poison -- so farmers pour on more. In the first 13 years since GM crops were introduced, the use of herbicide-tolerant crops resulted in an additional 383 million pounds more herbicide. And due to the emergence of superweeds (now found in 11 million acres), the increased use of Roundup is accelerating dramatically.

USDA solution? Even more Roundup

The USDA has a unique response to this mounting threat: Add more Roundup. In January 2011 they deregulated yet another Roundup Ready crop, alfalfa -- which is widely used for animal feed. Only 7% of the more than 20 million acres of this crop typically gets any herbicide applied to it. But that's about to change, since Roundup Ready alfalfa will soon be drinking Roundup in a hay field near you.

Not content with just the alfalfa, on July 1 the USDA told Scotts Miracle-Gro that it could introduce Roundup Ready Kentucky Bluegrass to lawns, golf courses, and soccer fields around the nation, without any government oversight.

So now we have Roundup in our food, animal feed, air, rain, and streams, and soon it will be sprayed in high doses where our children play on the grass. It's not just birth defects that may soon plague America as a result. Roundup is also linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, lower sperm counts, abnormal sperm, human cell death, miscarriages, and other disorders. But it's also linked to billions in profits for Monsanto. No wonder they are working overtime to silence the scientists and cover-up the findings. What if people knew the truth?

I know, and I'm not saying to use it, but my intention was the listed nutrients. The purpose is to introduce nutrients to a high energy base.

I am more interested in nutrition, energy, water content and yield. You can use my data to save you from buying said product.



Side note:


Save the water you get from cooking vegetables, add 1 teaspoon of yeast extract per 100g, then pressure cook.

Yeast extract is the black-brown stuff you put on toast, vegetable extract may also work well.

Good, we're back on track! Have you done any side by sides with an isolate? I know with cubes we like to eliminate the genetic variable in order to have more conclusive results.

Awesome, just as long as you see just data, I apologize for any confusion. In which way do you mean for the side-by-side?

The enriched with X brand and yeast nutrients, or the home made extract version. If the latter then no not yet.


Else: Total yield, colour and preservation increased when using said products in conjunction.


The TGF-Tek uses waste tea leaves as a nutrient feed, and is easy to make.

So far when using the TGF-Tek, I have never pressure cooked, and assembled it open air. You can consider this a bonus, I still suggest a short pressure cook regardless.


What do you owe the ability to not-PC to? Is that from use of the spent tea leaves?
