Using pond water to produce worm tea

by EZ

Question: If you use pond water, do you still need to use the air pump to produce worm tea?


Hell EZ,

using pond water to produce worm tea is definitely better than using tap water if you want to work with worms or want to brew some worm tea.

Pond water does not contain chlorine is usually rich in micro organisms and additional nutrients from fish and other creatures that live in your pond. Plants thrive on pond water which is shown brilliantly in aquaponics systems which grow the most amazing plants.

So you could very well produce a great worm tea by mixing worm castings with pond water alone. Nevertheless I believe by adding mollasses to the mix and airating the liquid heavily for 24 hours you will multiply the beneficial microorganisms that naturally occurred in your worm castings and pond water massively and your worm tea will be even better as the product you had before the brewing process.

If you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Keep on recycling food waste and other organic matter in worm farms for a better environment.

Kind regards
