Instant Compost Tea™ from Mighty Plant is the first of its kind that requires no brewing. This organic water-soluble powder contains essential nutrients and beneficial microbes that activate once dissolved in the solution and enhance soil fertility. Made with yeast, kelp, and amino acids, along with other healthy bacteria, Instant Compost Tea™ works to increase overall plant mass, optimize tolerance to abiotic stress, increase brix and enhance nutrition-driven yields.

The microbe density in the tea cannot be achieved with brewed plant teas and is far more potent and sanitary than traditional methods. This revolutionary plant tea from Mighty Plant can be used on both indoor and outdoor plants, trees, flower beds, hydroponics, vegetable gardens, propagation, crop fields, and even on sports turf. Instant Compost Tea™ also works as a foliar spray for your pepper plants.
Mix the Instant Compost Tea™ powder into 1 gallon of unchlorinated water until fully dissolved. Your measurement of powder will depend on what you use the compost tea on. For example, indoor plants require 1 teaspoon (tsp.) per gallon of water while outdoor plants require 2 tsp. per gallon.

Apply the compost tea to the root zone of the plant, drenching the soil all around the basin. For foliar spray, apply the solution directly to the plant's leaves and foliage.

Undiluted product (powder) has a shelf life of 3 years in a cool, dry place. Once activated with water, the solution must be used within 24 hours.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
