Make your own liquid fertilizer from compost. Use one part compost to five parts water. Place the compost in a burlap, cheesecloth or permeable bag and set it in a container of water. An occasional stirring (once a day) is recommended for this passive method. Your compost tea will be ready in seven to ten days or when the water turns brown. Use the tea to fertilize seedlings, Use this liquid fertilizer on houseplants, new transplants, seedlings, container gardens or anywhere a liquid fertilizer is preferred.
