nomore,
You'd have to check the package to see what it removes. I have a Britta 3 stage and I can use it for plants but it takes so damn long to get enough.

Bubbling chlorinated water in an open 5 gallon bucket is cheap. Those Pur filters are expensive, and not necessary.

hiya Burn1 . . . we always thought you deserved to be at least a moderator . . . but in all honesty being a Mentor is probably the better gig!

more good advice from another outstanding individual!

greensand is an interesting amendment . . . it actually has a few properties that we like . . .

but it's also a somewhat rare and non-renewable resource . . . and as Suby has said . . . it's a very slow source of K . . . only worthwhile to use if it's in a "soil building" exercise . . .

btw - as we further refine our indoor soil remixing techniques . . . we are seeing them more and more as an actual exercise in soil building . . . it's now our perspective that the "ideal" for an indoor garden is a carefully built and maintained renewable soil built from manures, vegetable dusts (kelp - alfalfa - etc.), rock dusts, and peat (or other similar suitable substrate) . . .

Thanks Pyrex & Burn1. I remember learning my organics from you a couple years ago on OG...

I think my tap water tastes funky so I already use a PUR filter. If I remember ahead of time I try and bubble my water but sometime I've been gone for a couple days and my plants need water asap. I don't always have the time to bubble so the PUR makes for a quick fix. Assuming it takes the right stuff out...?

hello burnone,suby,pyrex and all other followers of this thread.
i have a few questions myself if would like to help.
I am doing an outdoor grow this year and want to use LC's mix #2.
what else and amounts of other organic store bought goodies for N-P-K could i throw in this soil mix also without worrying about hurting the soil or plants and give the plants a longterm "food".

If i make a homemade tea brewing system for an alternative method of buying ferts, what are things and/or total mixes i can put in the bubble system that will stimulate my soil and plants without hurting both these things. Or where can i find organic tea mixes that are equivelent or better than store bought liquid ferts that anyone has used with good-amazing results. Most importantly i do not want to add something that can and will hurt my plants.
Ive heard with organics the more u put in the better the end result. yes? sounds about right to me. but if i add too much organic goodies will they cause nute lockup, any growth deficiencies, or work together to hurt my plants and soil in any way
Any tips or advice is well appreciated by all of us

Bennythejet-
Let me try to answer your questions one at a time because I don't completely understand what you are asking...

If I were growing outdoors and wanted long term food, I'd use recipe #1. I'd mix them as directed and put them where I wanted to grow. Then I'd wait a while to see if any animals (like dogs) wanted to dig into the bone meal. If nothing happens after a couple of weeks, I'd plant my seedlings into the mix. Making sure the seedlings were at least a month old so they could handle the nitrogen in the dried blood. You could substitute alfalfa meal for the blood or mix half of each.

This is the part I'm having trouble understanding.
See recipe #3, guano tea and kelp. But don't use both recipes. It'll be too strong. Pick one recipe and use as directed and it won't hurt your plants.

No. Too much organic ferts will harm your plants just like any other fertilizer can. Too much nitrogen in any form will always burn your plants. Like I said before, use as directed.
