How long is the ‘shelf life’ of Flower Girl Bud and Bloom Booster tea? I made a gallon about 4 weeks ago and I am ready to feed my plants but I am wondering if it will still be effective after sitting in my indoor office for four weeks in a reclaimed orange juice gallon container.
One of the whole key component of making a compost tea, is brewing microbes (living organisms), so right after 24 hours it should be used for the maximum results. That’s when you will have the most microbes alive. When they sit with no air/oxygen they die off. The fertilizer tea is still good in what you have them in but the microbe activity is no longer there. If you want to make a tea that you do not have to use right away invest in a perpetual tea brewer.
