Growing on the cheap! Korean Natural Farming

Most of our money goes right into bottles of this and bottles of that once you finish setting up the perfect environment. why not start making your own? its quite easy!
Im going to introduce you guys to Korean natural farming! (KNF) KNF is a way of taking from the land respectively, fermenting, and then returning to the earth. fermenting is great!
Fermenting will draw from deep in the cells, compounds which are not available in raw form by proliferation of beneficial lactic acid bacteria.
You could hop on the latest dick riding train and buy some plant “tonics” for your garden. OR you could just turn to the old school way that has been happening for a long time.

First thing is the lactic acid bacteria. You will use this in all of your ferments to help with the fermentation.
check out my thread over at Lactic acid bacteria serum! Aka LABS

After you make that everything else is very simple. Fermented plant juice FPJ, fermented fruit juice FFJ, Oriental herbal nutrient OHN, oriental immune booster OIB, Indigenous micro organisms IMO.

you can survive with just making FFJs and FPJs. you can make it with anything but they best things are fast growing plants in your local area. Clover, Alfalfa, Comfrey, Stinging nettle, etc.
collect the growing tips of these plants with respect and say your thanks to each being to take from.
DO NOT CLEAN THESE.
roughly chop these up and weigh them.
Mix 1:1 with an organic sugar source. leave in a covered jar (3\4 full) for about a week or two.
squeez all the liquid out and collect it. use at 1 tsp per gallon.
Lets say you went and got some stinging nettle and alfalfa and some clover blossoms. then went and collected some brown kelp. mix 1:1 sugar source. ferment, press and strain, collect. then youll have all the nutrients youll need to get started. once you get started youll start fermenting everything though so proceed with caution;)

I hope you guys enjoy this!
Much love
Lotus

Thanks for posting this! I have had great success with this method recently, more growers should adopt this style of growing in my opinion. This crop is so much “terpier” than the last!

lotus710, This is wonderful. In my search for homemade alternatives to expensive growshop ingredients , this sounds great. Thank you.

You are very welcome. All questions and comments are welcome:)

100grams of alfalfa and dandelion leaf and 100grams of cane sugar. Mixed. Let sit for 14 days. Strain and you get.
about 10 gallons of food for your soil… how much you say? Well it costed me about 25 cents😂 this right here, ladies and gentleman, is why i dont buy bottled nutrients.

Are you a graduate from the University of Hawaii @Spyslab ? More power for you bro. I’m sure @lotus710 understood it was a joke. Don’t take it personal.

I will smoke now for peace upon you all. Cheers!

Happy Harvest!
