    Yes this; To spill a small secret, I’ve been pre-feeding or pre-activating [vermi]compost which is not so fresh by mixing in a small amount of wheat bran (livestock store or bulk foods department grocery store) and moistening with very diluted black strap molasses, loosely covered with cloth or paper towel 24 hours ahead of brew. (approximate ratios, wheat bran 1:30 [vermi]compost & BSM 1:300 water).

    This has, so far resulted in (most of the time) attaining the desired microbial population at 24 hours brew time rather than the usual 36 to 42 hours.

    I hope you understand that the bran of 1 part is mixed with the vermicompost of 30 parts and then is just moistened with a spray bottle. The mix in the spray bottle is approximately 1 part black strap molasses and 300 parts water. I DO NOT use the whole spray bottle. As stated, I just moisten [wet a little] the mix and then cover.

      You soak ashes to get potassium, not for phosphorus.

      When date palms get too high they cut them down. They’re too difficult to harvest. If the trunks are buried in sand, they break down almost like peat.
      Mix in some aged manure.
      Being by the ocean, they may have high salt and need to be buffered. I don’t know. Taste it. Or just soak it in a little calcium.

      What can you get out of that ocean? Any fish waste? Seaweed?


      Everywhere in the street there are thrown palm leaves it is very easy to get them and then it is a matter of turning said palm leaves into ashes, I would like to take advantage of the palm ash its potassium and its phosphorus and support it with wheat or oat bran, or chickpea flour or sunflower seeds are easy to get where I live and are rich in phosphorus, so I have balanced nutrition in bloom.

      base floor:
      -80% recycled land x total land
      -20% earthworm humus x total land
      -perlite
      -Dolomite 1gr x 1L of land in each land recycling.

      -Palm tree rods = K and P
      and wheat or oat bran = P phosphorus support, would this be enough?

      I have managed to get palm ash and wheat bran for phosphorus but I don't know how much to use per 50L of soil?
      I have products such as neem flour and palm ash and rock dust Epson salts wheat bran horsetail flour wheat bran lentil flour, I wish I could do them without depending on fish hydrolyzate, seaweed flour, alfalfa, flour feather oysters etc ..... things that where I live are almost exotic, and here it is not grown in this way .....

      algas marinas hay siempre a la orilla marrones rojas y amarillas en marea alta.

      little by little I follow his councils and I am building my floor correctly

      Thank you

        señor disculpe pero soy muy torpe con las proporciones 1:30 y 1:300

        puede decirme para una cantidad de 250ml de lombricompost comolo haría? así aprendo esto que no terminó de comprender

          I have tried to practice my vermicompost with bran and molasses at these proportions:
          Water = 300ml dechlorinated or osmosis
          vermicompost = 250ml
          wheat bran = 8ml
          Molasses = 1ml
          I did it that way but I didn't succeed

          I thank you confirm if your recipe is ok (1 of wheat bran: 30 of vermicompost / 1 of molasses: 300 of water [
          Mr.MM is my preactivation correct for 250ml of vermicompost?

          Thank you.

            - 250ml lombricompost.
            - 8ml wheat bran.
            - 300ml of dechlorinated water.
            - 1ml of molasses (BSM).

              Not if you use all the water. Only use enough to moisten the [v]compost.

              No si usas toda el agua. Solo use suficiente para humedecer el compost

                  This says on a page in Spanish:
                  Wheat bran: The phosphorus provided by 100 grams of this food is 1013.0 mg

                  https://alimentos.org.es/alimentos-ricos-en-fosforo

                  With the% nutritional values ​​of the phosphorus example foods, it is possible to know how much to put into amendment this is the critical point of all this.

                  I have seen that the vast majority mix the amendments in equal parts and then put that mixture 1 / 2-2 cups per 30L of ground, I thought to put 125ml of ash and 125ml of wheat bran, but I would appreciate learning to add the amount of amendment according to its nutritional value.

                  Thank you.

                    lo de la cantidad de agua necesaria para humectar lo entendí desde el principio, lo que no estoy seguro si estoy interpretando bien las cantidades, por eso le pregunté si estaba bien las cantidades de mi preactivación.

                    gracias.

                      The phosphorus is ~1 gram in 100 or about 1%.

                      You can dissect an existing soil recipe. List the ingredients, figure the npk values of each then calculate the actual weight of each nutrient.
                      Figure the nutritional value of what you have, then figure how to combine them to come up with the same values. Use common sense and then take a good guess.
                      Keep in mind different amendments release different nutrients at different rates.
                      If using foodstuff, you can find the protein value. The protein value is calculated by multiplying nitrogen by a variable factor that centers at around 6. I work backwards by dividing the protein count by 6. That gets me close.

                      I also compare with like amendments. I figure bran meal around 2.67% nitrogen. Compare to soy meal at 7%. 7/2.67=2.62
                      The recommendation for soy meal is 2 to 4 tablespoons per gallon of soil. I need 2.67 times as much bran to equal the same nitrogen value.

                        spent the good part of the day yesterday turning and mixing 50# of alfalfa into the pile. Recent rain had it already heating up. The pile is on natures schedule now and will be monitored for moisture and heat and mixed every week or ten days (based on previous experience) and then let rest to mature for a year,

                          There are some maximum and minimum values ​​to adjust the npk in amendments, when you say it it sounds easy but I don't know how to do it.

                          Thank you.

                              ahora mismo prepararé una tierra reciclada he hecho
                              1patte tierra reciclada
                              1parte lombricompost
                              1perlita

                              conseguí ceniza en una tienda de jardinería pero las próximas.as cenizas de palmera si las voy hacer en casa, y harina de neem

                              ven muy poco alimento para la tierra sólo ponoendo ceniza y humus para floración, polvo de roca volcánica y Dolomita ?

                              quisiera no depender de una receta si no aprender a encontrar los valores de NPK y de acuerdo a esto saber que cantidad de enmienda poner por litros de tierra preparada.

                              - La ceniza de palmera (0-1-30) 1L
                              la dosis dice 2tazas por 15L de tierra, que les parece está cantidad?
