High Tea is an innovative microbial solution designed to deliver millions of beneficial fungi and bacteria to your soil!

These beneficial microbes will assist your plants access nutrients at unparalleled rates, build resistance and tolerance towards drought conditions (access water more efficiently) and suppress pathogens and viruses spreading through your soil affecting your growth!

This product is recommended to be used in conjunction with our Mycorrhizal Inoculant for the ultimate protection of your plants roots!

Each packet will make 200L of concentrated High Tea solution. This will be diluted to make up to 2000L!

How to use:

Use 1/2 tablespoon (5g) of High Tea per 5L of dechlorinated water.

Simply take your chosen amount of High Tea and place it in the draw string bag provided. Place the bag in your compost tea brewer and bubble for 24 hours in warmer weather or 36 hours in cooler weather.

If no brewer is accessible, a satisfactory "shake" brew can be made by using 1 teaspoon of High Tea and 2 litres of dechlorinated water in a food grade plastic bottle. Make sure to shake your container frequently and open the lid to allow for fresh oxygen exchange. Do not use your "shake" tea if you do not supply it with enough fresh oxygen via opening of the container and vigorous shaking. Your final product will have a sweet smell. If the smell is anything but pleasant, do not use it and start again providing more oxygen.

To use your finished tea dilute 1:5 with dechlorinated water for soil drenching or 1:10 for foliar applications. Apply fortnightly for best results.

If using an aquarium pump we recommend (for maximum efficiency) at least 3 watts of power be used per 5L of water. Please also ensure your brewer and air stone are cleaned thoroughly after each use for best results.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
