Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum (LABS)

by Alex Robles

Recently I had the awesome pleasure to have a conversation with Joe Grows about LABS (Lactic Acid Bacteria Serum).  Joe was the perfect person to ask to help me understand how it works and how it benefits our cannabis plants and our other gardens.  There’s no way I could possibly explain everything we talked about, so instead, I’m just going to leave the link to his website (thefermentationfarmer.com).  If your interested in natural farming techniques, soil recipes, compost tea recipes or Korean natural farming (KNF) go check it out.  Trust me, you will learn at least one thing over there.

However, too much or too little water or bad soil conditions (e.g., poor drainage, or waterlogging) are much more common causes of wilted plants.
