Bat Guano Tea

Asked October 4, 2020, 8:28 PM EDT

Bat Guano Tea. I have publication 234, Organic Fertilizers but need more info on tea and hope someone has pursued such. I've gotten three recipes so far: Several teaspoons; three tablespoons; or one cup per gallon. Steep over night . One said filter which I'm sure you must do before spraying for foliar feeding. Foliar feeding - How often? If watering young plants? Ex. Gardenia and Rose of Sharon cuttings now 10 to 12 inches tall in gallon and two gallon pots. How much tea? How often? I have a daily supply of fresh guano from my two bat houses that hang over pavement. We appreciate what y'all do. Thanks.

Well I don't know the actual efficacy of any compost tea. I am familiar with vermicompost tea and the "claimed" benefits. Here's a vermicompost tea recipe, I'm sure you can adjust for the bat guano
