What is the difference between “AACT” & “AAET”?
AACT- Actively Aerated Compost Tea
- This is for those people who are lucky enough to have pure fully decayed compost at their access. This can be attained at farms, greenhouses, local compost landfills or institutes, even from the home gardener and many, many more.
AAET- Actively Aerated Elemental Tea
- This is brewing tea with raw and formulated elements!!! Available through Key-To-Life Elements. Here we strive to give you the most pure being the oldest elements we can possibly find. We look back in time to the period on earth that the sheer elementals were being developed thus creating the first forms of microbial life here on our planet.
Supercharge your Microbes!
- There is enough space to fit over half-a-billion microbes in the period at the end of this sentence in a good batch of AACT/AAET. One tablespoon has enough fungi and bacteria to completely engulf the planet, if spread in one even layer! One gallon of AACT/AAET has more microbes than 800 to 1000 pounds of good compost!
- Optimally, we would like to be using 100 million year old, fully decayed compost; but unfortunately, some of us live in areas of the world where compost is hard to obtain or composting is hard to do. Never fear! Actively Aerated Elemental Tea (AAET) is here! The other misconception about compost is that even with perfectly healthy compost piles they take a very long time! Now, here is where the debate begins… Some people say you can achieve quality compost in 3 months but I’d like to say that it takes at least a year. (Of course, all relative to size of compost pile, particular care and energy put in) The most important part of maintaining a proper compost pile is temperature. Maintaining an internal temperature of at least 100+ degrees. Piles can stabilize micro life even better at temperatures up around at least 140+. This allows the decomposition process to do what it needs to do and break down organic matter using microbes. With an end result of the extraction of Humates, Fulvates, Aminos and a slew of other enzymes, elements and trace minerals. These are some of the prime building blocks to planet Earth’s early micro life.
- Essentially a rhizospere is a “living root skin”. This area immediately outside the root is a living layer of microbes. Consisting of bacteria that feed on dead plant cells, proteins and sugars released by the plant’s root system. This area also has a symbiotic relationship with the plant and the fungal hyphae network and harbors large amounts of protozoa and nematodes that consume the larvae of non-beneficials. The rhizosphere is ONLY possible in a true organic situation. Heavily chleated salts, found in most commercial bottled nutrients, will directly kill the rhizospere, and alter the plant and root growth.
- The Fungal Hyphae network is unlike the rhizosphere, being that it is everywhere in a soil mix rather than in the immediate root zone. A fungal hyphae network consists of long microfilaments of fungi that form a network or “web”. This is where it gets crazy… Since fungus is its own kingdom of plant unlike most other life on the planet. It is said that fungus can actually function like an Aspen grove, but fungus can actually spread much farther. The fungal hyphae network is connecting itself between and through all healthy soil areas in the planet! So theoretically, the fungal hyphae network is the largest organism on Earth!!!
