Organic Wetting Agent

Post  jjocsak on 10/16/2013, 10:39 am

Does anyone know of a good wetting agent to add to my sprayer for use with BT or Compost tea?
I have tried Coco-Wet which works but some say it kills microbes and bacteria.


Thanks
Jeff

Some gardeners soak Ivory soap in water to use. A pure castile soap would be better, I think (such as Kirk's Fragrance Free). Soak the bar in warm water for a few minutes and then use a small amount of the liquid.

You can also buy liquid castile soap. I've used Dr. Bronner's Peppermint liquid castile soap. Deters flea beetles as well as acting as a surfacant.

I'm wondering if it will have any affect (bad) on the microbes in my compost tea spray?
Or, will it kill the bacterial in BT spray?


I wish I had a microscope. thinking
