      Gypsum, calcium sulfate, is another source of sulfur.

      Dank Frank has a soil recipe that uses elemental sulfur if I’m not mistaken.

        Do you ever use epsom salt for the magnesium and sulfur for boom? Or do you try to keep that away as so it doesn't build up in the soil?

          I use landbeinite (sul-po-mag). In the mix/top-dressing and with all of the other inputs, there is always plenty.

          I really like to just let the biology balance stuff out. If there is a diverse and steady feed of the bio, then I never see a deficiency.

            It seems to me that when we try and force levels of certain nutes in organics, we cause trouble. Crab/lobster/shrimp/crawfish shells all bring in magnesium and calcium. Sulfur is all over the place with a diverse input feed. Worm bin gets measured amounts of citrus peels, onions skins/scraps, old organic yogurt, some bread scraps, cooked lefr over rice. The little buggers LOVE rice and pumkin. Pumpkin seeds are also a great add.

            I avoid urea N sources when I can.

            NPK - is misleading. That measures what is readily available.

              Sorry for asking so many questions Azeotrope, id prefer to wonder what others do then to narrow mind my self and habits...

              I have several worm bins my self that get almost everything from my food scrapes usually a good variety of inputs every week. I've actually never put rice, bread or citrus in my bins but many other fruits tho

              i also grow organic and never try to push the plants to hard since the girls like it that way and it seems to usually produce healthy plants.

                I love the questions. It makes me think through my process and read about others. Sounds like you have it dialed in. Think we have a similar take on what the girls like.

                Best wishes

                  Can the banana in this tea be substituted for palm tree ash ?

                    Epsom salt won’t stay in the soil. It’s a quick “fix” that doesn’t last.
                    It’s what happens when sulfur is added. The sulfur will unlock the magnesium that’s already in your soil making it available to the plant while helping to rid of any excess through the leaching process.
                    Of course all that’s overthinking it. Trying to control too much that doesn’t necessarily need to be controlled. Too much work.
