Soil Tonic is a concentrated blend of hand-crafted and cold extracted botanicals formulated with plant & soil health in mind.  It is a supplement that you can use in addition to your fertilizer regiment.  It is suitable for plants of all types at all stages of growth.  

Soil Tonic includes the following botanicals:

  1. Fresh aloe vera: high in hormones, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, saponins & its cellular water.
  2. Kelp: Trace minerals, 60 micronutrients, phytohormones, amino acids, vitamins & enzymes.
  3. Live sprout Blend: We germinate & extract massive amounts of Fresh, living sprouts high in all the phytohormones, enzymes, minerals and cellular water.
  4. A one of kind water soluble ‘Whole Plant’ Neem extract I derive from Neem leaf, bark & seed! Neem is well known for its pest fighting capabilities but lesser known is how rich it is in Sulphur which has many benefits towards plant health including increased flavor and aroma in your veggie & herb gardens! (Head over to the Soil section and grab some Neem Cake for direct application to your soil!)
  5. A blend of nutrient accumulating herbs such as Horsetail, Comfrey & Yarrow.
  6. Soapnut berry: High in minerals & loaded with Saponins. Saponins are known to deter pests and trigger the plants natural immune system.

Application:

 

Water plants with 10ml / 2x tsp per gallon. 

Apply about once a month or every few waterings. For pest outbreaks like fungus gnats apply 3x waterings in a row before resuming a regular maintanence schedule. It can be used in conjunction with any other fertilizer program (like Foliage Focus) This is a concentrated formula, and a little goes a long way! One of our 4oz bottles makes 12 gallons of ready to use solution!

Are you here for the suds n’ foams you may have seen on social media?  Here’s some ways to activate the super sudsy saponins! 

  1. Use a mason jar or a water bottle/jug.  In a half gallon container I will add 2.5ml, only 1/4tsp of Soil Tonic, and fill up half way with water, thats 32oz of water, leaving plenty of room for the foam to grow!   For a 1 gallon jug fill half way with water and add 5ml, 1tsp Soil Tonic.  Give it a shake and you’ll see how quickly it foams up!  While not necessary it sure is fun and we love adding a little extra fun to Plant Care!  Rest assured though, the benefits are still there regardless so don’t worry if you skip this step altogether!
  2. Skip the shaking and add to your kitchen blender, let the blender do the shaking for you!
  3. Got a different method you use?  Tag us in a post and share how you use Soil Tonic in your garden!


My everday/quick method of application is to simply measure and pour Soil Tonic into your watering can or pitcher and fill with water at the kitchen sink or from the hose, and water your plants!


Orchids/LECA/PON: For orchids or any plant kept in a passive/semi hydro setting.  Soak at half to full strength up to once weekly for 1-2hours. Rinse medium after, replace reservoir with plain water or any nutrient solution you normally use. 

For my orchids I will alternate between Soil Tonic & Plant Tonic. I keep them in Leca with a small amount of plain water at the bottom to wick from, or in bark that will soak or rinse with water as needed when starts to dry.


Emuslifier: Have a bottle of pure Neem Oil in the cupboard? Tired of lackluster results trying to use dish soap to emulsify it?  both our Soil Tonic & Leaf Tonic make a superior emulsifier for any Horticultural Oil! 

For 1 gallon of solution:   Mix 10-15ml of Oil with 5-10ml of Soil or Leaf Tonic. I recommend adding together with a little bit of warm water in a quart jar where you can shake it and see that proper emulsification has taken place. Then dilute into the full amount of water in your spray bottle!
