Sooo many questions sooo little focus ;)
I havent put another brew together yet but am staring at the bottles I will see what I can do ;)
So just one brew I like to feed outside stuff 1 every 2 weeks or more diluted once a week
not so much from the house plants but they get diluted down herbal tea at times too
I do not have a ppm tester (looking into it)... I tested the ph before and it was acidic which is good for the brew so it ferments instead of rots ;))
I forgot to test the ph after I diluted it it was well diluted I rater go on the lighter the fert the more u can do it ;) this way I do not burn things cause it is always well diluted not high risk burning and I add weeds and mushrooms these will not harm plants ;)
poo water u could but I have poo in the mix (worm poo for cacti in sand) and cow and sheep in peat mix dirt pots
egg shells in the brew would turn it more basic is my guess and reuin the brew ;) but add these to the dirt mix cacti and sand love egg shells and so does the other pots ;)
now I think the egg shells in the dirt will balance the acidic food water coming in ;) just a guess ;)
Ya its alot this early in the morning but no prob I needed the poke to get another brew together ;) So thank U :)
and I like how u left me a line inbetween the words are not staying still on the screen lol easier to see with space around it lol :)
In alll seriousness - if you actually need calcium in your soil after the garden is moving forward, you don't have to go and buy liquid calcium which contains EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) - pretty bad stuff.
A friendlier method is to simply crush egg shells, cover 3x with organic apple cider vinegar and let it sit for a couple of weeks - you'll have calcium in a liquid form that won't wreck havoc on your health.
If you roast the egg shells prior to soaking them in the vinegar you'll end up with calcium phosphate - again in a form that won't harm your or other living things.
Just an idea................
