Yo, im trying to create a custom blend that will mimic gaia green. Seems to be a great product unmatched by any American competitors. At first I just planned to use dr earth 4-4-4 or down to earth vegetable garden but after researching recipes I realized gaia green has a much much much more complex ingredient list. Dr earth seems to be the closest runner up but it is missing quite a few great ingredients like greensand, oyster shell, rock dust, insect frass, blood meal, and a few other lesser important ones. Down to earth offers most of the necessary ingredients individually that could replicate gaia greens ingredients but I am not sure how to come up with a recipe. Any ideas out there? Anyone got a good "4-4-4" blend? I'm looking for information specifically on a solution, not alternatives.

Hey there ! i have been looking for this recipe for a while, being in the UK i have no way of getting Gaia Green (or at least ive never found it), so searched long and hard for a good recipe and the best i have found and very interested in trying is a compost tea by a pretty cool bloke called Josh from boogie brew, cant get boogie brew here either so he gave the recipe away on a youtube video, and on his site not the exact ratio but rough.

I know its a compost tea recipe but it was all the ingredients other than fish meal i think and the only recipe ive found with a very rough ratio guide


You have to hunt around for all of this stuff, not one shop in the UK stocks more than one item it seems.

Hope this helps


wormcastings
kelp + kelpflex: 20-25%
nutrional yeast: 10-20%
sugar of any kind, the darker the better, : 10-25%

these above r the most important recipe parts, all beneath is advanced)


soy aminos 5-10%
soy bean meal 10-15%
alfalfa meal: 5-10%
sea-90 probiotic tracemineral seasalt: up to 5% (not used >1/month to not oversalt one's soil)
humic acid crystals: 3-7%
calcium phosphate: 5-10%
cascade (vulcanic) minerals: 5-10%
humic acid granules: 5-10%
greensand/langbeinite: 5-10%

My man! That's a hell of a start. I'm familiar with boogie brew from seeing Josh on John's channel "growing your greens". This is a interesting start point, I've also found a lead on a decent looking recipe, although it will be a few days before I can get it up here. Thanks for the info, ill get that other recipe up asap (it is almost identical to gaia green)

After thought.... think I'm going to begin the daunting task of trial and error with soil testing. Going to give my best efforts of reproducing gaia with about 5 different recipes and then send them out to the lab to see how they look and tweak from there. May take some time but I'll repost all info here. One way or another we will get the the bottom of this.
