Liked this. However I would eliminate the step he used of adding commercail mychos to his brew. One its a waste of money. Since he put the rice bags into his native surroundings he will have already cultured some of the native mychos already in his soil. There are studies that have shown that the efficacy of a lot of commercial mychos dont even germinate. Along with the fact that even the ones that did germinate the dry plant yields were no better than the yields from plants not receiving any mycho additives..
Very nice location. Bet there are some goodies livin in the soil around that tree.@jumpincactus Couldn't agree more about the commercial mycos. I personally have had a lot of success with store bought mycos in the past but in this case it is an unnecessary step IMO . This is the tree I am harvesting microbes from and a bucket of growth at 1 week.

hey homesteader,when you pull the rice up,do you really need that amount of mollasses?then,after the second month brewing in the bucket,what's my next step?Yeah the picture doesn't really do the tree justice on its size but its my largest oak at least 90 years old probably a few decades more.
cheers mate, yeah bro,keep on trying new stuff out.thats were it's at.i was surprised how much nettles can boost your gals vitality.i get this really bright green colouring on them.they really respond to it,young or old.a handful of earth ,freshly dug up from next to a big oak tree,or whatever....makes for a great tea additive.I would agree that less is okay(mollasses) Think I went about 30 days-40 days but was just kind of winging it.. I personally didn't find much benefit from this from my experimenting in the sense that EWCs provided the microbes already. I may do it again and leave out the EWCs to get a better idea.
Maybe making your own soil mix for indoor plants? That's what I'm thinking anywayNothing to add, but I have been checking out the knf methods and think they sound great. What sort of environment are you looking to use it in? To me, it looked they would be best applied to large beds in a greenhouse, not sure how well it would translate to container gardening indoors. I like the thread idea:)
You did not miss any chapters. Normal to get confused, some growers combine both or only use a portion of the KNF system instead of using as designed.Hey all I recently started growing knowing I wanted to go organic, didnt know how until I found KNF. I just finished Cho's Global Natural Farming and I have a few questions that I dont know where to find the answers to - What do the abbreviations NMA and NMD stand for in natural farming? As well as I saw something on Instagram about 'jadam.' Did I miss a chapter or are these other natural farming methods not published in the book i read..?
Thank you sir...got plenty of reading material from this thread, thanks folksHere is another decent link I have found with some very good info.
