Blue Mountain Organics liquid ferts

Lots of info has been posted here and on RIU which convinced me to give these ferts a try. Due to very limted space and other restrictions I cannot compost or even mix large batches of soil so I have had to rely on liquid ferts, reused soil and all without earth worm castings to help out. Eventually the soil got depleted and I was seeing multiple deficiencies including calmag due to R/O water.

So for the apartment growing style or micro grows liquid organic ferts can get the job done very well.

The BMO ferts are guano/molasses/azomite based. I am not sure if the flavors will be better than blood/bone/kelp mixes but from what Sub says there are differences in taste from one fert mix to another. Guanos are supposed to give an excellent flavor so I was willing to pay a few extra bucks to find out. BMO is not expensive but you may go through it somewhat fast.

Another nice thing is that each batch is labeled with the date it was brewed and this information is made available to the buyer before they purchase it.

Their fert line is very straight forward:
Veg 5-2-5
Flower 1-8-7
Microbes/Micronutes/aminos 1-.5-1

The microbe tonic is interesting. It saves me from dealing with EWC and along with Epsoma plant tone is very helpful for recycling soil.

Ingredients:
Artesian Spring Water, Worm Castings, Mycorrhizal Fungi, Azomite, Unsulphured (Blackstrap) Molasses, Endo and Ecto Bacteria, and Humic Acid derived from Oak Leaf & Peat Compost.

Anyway this stuff has been working very well the plants seem to love it. New growth is shiny and lush, growth is very fast and tips are perfect no burn.

Super Plant Tonic 1.25-.4-.9: The Artesian Spring Water (provides an all natural, chlorine free base), Worm Castings (add soluable nitrogen & trace minerals), Endo and Ecto Bacteria protect your plants roots and break down insoluble NPK, Mycorrhizal Fungi inoculate your plants roots helping them to get the most out of your soil or medium, Unsulphured Molasses (feeds - these beneficial microorganisms, provides trace minerals, plus soluble nitrogen, phosphorus & potassium), Coral Calcium (adds 72 trace minerals - that's all of them), Humic Acid derived from (Hot Composted) Oak Leaves & Peat - adds natural chelates (ensuring smooth delivery of the trace minerals). All these good things are mixed, then oxygenated for (3) days under optimal conditions; in a special organic tea brewer. Which increases the feeding action of the beneficial microorganisms - which break down all these good things, into a highly soluble liquid. Easily absorbed by plants. Note: Mycorrhizal Fungi enhance your plants ability to absorb more nutrients, minerals & water - resulting in better vigor, growth & draught resistance.

Grow it Green 5-2-5: High Nitrogen Bat Guano, Worm Castings, Coral Calcium, Unsulphured Molasses, Humic Acid, Beet Root Extract, Comfrey Hay Extract, Alfalfa Meal Extract, Endo and Ecto Bacteria.

Flower Power 1-8-7: Fossilized High Phosphorus Bat Guano, Fossilized High Phosphorus Seabird Guano, Worm Castings, Coral Calcium, Unsulphured Molasses, Humic Acid, Beet Root Extract, Comfrey Hay Extract, Alfalfa Meal Extract, Endo and Ecto Bacteria

Foliar Harmony 2-4-2: Artesian Spring Water, Fossilized High Phosphorus Bat Guano, Worm Castings, Azomite, Unsulphured Molasses, Humic Acid, Comfrey Hay Extract, Alfalfa Meal Extract, and Ecto Bacteria.

THNX to Shannonball from RIU for this info.

Here is what the owner of BMO told me about using their products:

Here are some general use guidelines which may be helpful:

The best way to use our products is in rotation. Water, feed, water, feed, (foliar feed as necessary), on separate days, in a continuous cycle. All of our liquid products can be mixed together in the same gallon of water, with no loss in performance. With the separations in NPK values, you can tune your fertilizer mix, to the values that best suit your particular plant(s). We recommend that you mix each liquid product as per the label on the bottle.

The Super Plant Tonic should be used from seedling stage until 3/4 of the way through the total growth period for short season plants (plants with a total life of 6 months or less). For trees or shrubs it can be used throughout the year, provided soil temperatures are above 40 degrees. You mix it as per the label, giving each plant one quart per gallon of soil volume (1 gallon maximum for in ground plants). Then it's best to wait two days, to allow the microorganisms to establish a stable population, before feeding (this applies only to the first time you use the SPT). After that, it can be used weekly and directly mixed in with the other products if you desire.

The Grow It Green is used during initial vegetative growth. Use weekly, giving each plant one quart of mixed up GIG, per gallon of soil for container plants. Example: 2 gallon pots would receive 2 quarts of mixed up GIG per week. If your plants are in the ground, 1/2 gallon (for light feeding plants) to 1 gallon per week for heavier feeding plants). Then just prior to fruit / nut / vegetable / or flower production, reduce the mixing strength of GIG to 1/2 the bottle recommended mixing strength and add the Flower Power at 1/2 the bottle recommended mixing strength. Then slowly reduce the mixing strength of the GIG, while increasing the mixing strength of the FP. The decreases and increases should be done in teaspoon sized measurements ( 5 ml).

The Foliar Harmony can be used during vegetative growth and during fruit / nut / vegetable or flower production. During vegetative growth, we recommend foliar application every two weeks. During flowering, foliar application during the first few weeks only, works best. FH can also be mixed in with FP (instead of or in conjunction with the GIG), during the fruit / nut / vegetable or flower production phase of growth, to increase nitrogen levels to ensure plants finish at their peak (staying green slightly longer, to increase yield). If you do use the FH as a Foliar Feed during the later half of flowering, please rinse foliage with room temperature water, twice over a two day period prior to harvest. This is best done early in the morning or late in the evening, with temperatures are cooler. Or prior to lights on, if growing indoors. Both the tops and bottoms of the leaves need to be rinsed until a good runoff occurs.

These are general guidelines for using our products, some plants, like corn and tomatoes, which are heavy feeders, can be fed twice the label recommended amounts, after the second week of vegetative growth. The best (safest) way to determine the proper feeding levels for your particular plants is to start at 1/2 the label recommended feeding strength, for the first feeding. Then slowly increase the mixing strengths of our products, with each feeding (in teaspoon increments). This helps avoid nutrient burning of foliage, which can slow down plant production. Some people also try feeding most of their plants at 1/2 the label recommended mixing strength, then feed two plants at the bottle recommended mixing strength, the first feeding. If the plants being fed the stronger mixing strength show no signs of nutrient burn, then you know it's safe to increase the mixing strength for the others, at next feeding. However, if the two plants being fed the stronger mixing strength, do show signs of nutrient burn, you have only affected two plants rather than your whole crop. You would then simply skip the next feeding of the nutrient burned plants and give them only water on the next feeding day. After that, they would then receive the same mixing strength as the larger group on the next scheduled feeding day.

If you use a PH meter to check your mixed up fertilizer solution, all of our products work best in the range of 5.5 to 7.2 5 to 6 for hydroponics, 6 to 7.2 for soil.

A TDS / EC meter used to determine ppm or EC, will be of little use with our products. The NPK in each is bound differently than the highly conductive commercial chemical based fertilizers. Use of that meter will not reflect the true NPK value of your mixed up fertilizer solution, since organic fertilizers are less conductive, because of the way the NPK is bound in longer carbon and hydrogen chains. Organic fertilizers also lack, PH stabilizers, dyes and the high mineral salt content of the chemical based fertilizers, which is why organic fertilizers are much healthier for both your plants and you.

Our only recommendations about the water you add our products to are: that is should be chlorine free (for best results) and have a ppm reading of less than 180 ppm. Above that level, mineral elements in hard water tend to cause other minerals in the fertilizers to drop out of solution, rending them less effective.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us. We will do our best to answer them promptly.

Thank You. Signed. - Bill Nelson, Owner of Blue Mtn Organics
