What are Origins Tea Blends used for?

Origins Organics Ultra Premium Compost Tea Blends offer a unique system of concentrated nutrients and minerals that help you grow the most vigorous and abundant plants with the least amount of effort. Our formulas are used for fruits, vegetables, flowers and turf.


What makes Origins Tea Blends unique?

Origins Tea Blends focus on the plant AND the soil. Ours is a simple, natural and standardized compost tea catalyst formula. It is undiluted, calcium-rich and easy-to-use. By using our concentrated formulas you can reduce the need for expensive additional supplements. No need for time-consuming calculations, ours reduces the need for costly pH Up and Down. We've done the homework for you, so get growing!


How is it used?

Origins Ultra Premium Compost Tea Blends can be used either as a stand-alone application using the concentrations described in our application rates below, or you can "brew" (aerate) for 12-24 hours with or without worm castings and/or compost and/or bokashi. When aerated with or without the added components, we recommend you place Origins Tea Blends and worm castings, etc. in a "tea bag" and suspend in the aerating solution. Reapplication is recommended weekly or bi-weekly. May be used with all soil and soil-less media including coconut coir and peat-based mediums.

Suggested application rates:

Early Vegetative/Small Plants:  1-3 TBSP per 1 Gallon of Water

Late Vegetative/ Large Plants:  2-4 LBS per 100 Gallons of Water

What are some of the benefits of using Origins Tea Blends’ powdered nutrients as opposed to using liquid nutrients?

We believe there are actually many benefits! Here are some:

1. We believe that by using Origins Tea Blends the grower has better control of the concentration of his/her final compost tea.


2. Our powdered blends do not require the use of a stabilizer such as phosphorus. The use of stabilizers can have an effect on the plant's pH levels.


3. We believe that our powdered blends "out of the bag" are more potent than liquids.


4. Growers using Origins have the benefit of a "freshly-made" nutrient solution for their soil.


5. Our products have a more eco-friendly impact on the environment- no plastic jugs or added weight of shipping as with liquid nutrients.

 


Do I use your BaseBlend thoughout the entire growing cycle?

BaseBlend may be used from the beginning to the end of the cycle. Please check out our Growth and Bloom Cycle chart for more information. BaseBlend and BloomBlend have been designed to work together.


How often do I apply your compost tea blends to my plants?

Application of compost tea blends is recommended once weekly or bi-weekly, with even more frequency of application when your plants are in a "high-demand" phase of growing.


How long is Origins Tea Blends good for after mixing/aerating?

Aerated, the final solution will be viable for up to 72 hours. Non-aerated, please use within 12 hours.


At what temperature should I brew the compost tea blends?

The ideal temperature range for compost tea is 60-65 degrees F. Keep in mind that colder temperatures will result in a slower biological process of the TeaBlends nutrients.


Do you recommend Origins Tea Blends for hydroponic growing?

We do not recommend Origins compost tea blends in re-circulating systems.
