Green Sand is 0-0-3, but it's very slow release.. So it really comes into play, if you recycle your soil..
I mix green sand into all my soil mixes, and also use it as a top dressing..

i know some cats, who make their own ferts, and they burn the banana to ash, then, they make a tea, of sorts with it?!? i dont know the process, but, perhaps i will take a closer look.
leonardite and any other lake bed minerals are good sources.

BTW; "Organic" is from a living source or its decay, not necessarily alive at the time.

Would anyone know if the K is more readily available form the dried banana peel tea or the leonardite?

I also recirculate my mixture and prefer to add these additives to the mixture before I use it.

This is a great addditive that will strengthen your crops with increased vigor and aid in discouraging disease.
Golf courses use alot of this stuff to keep their turf strong and healthy.
The sulfer in Potash work great for keeping your girls nice and dark green too.

if you take an organic substance and bury depending on temperatures it can take weeks, months even years to deliver nutrients..

Honey is a natural glucose and fructose sugar that is readily recognized and used for energy by our bodies. Honey contains mineral such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate. Honey also contains small amounts of copper, iodine and zinc. Honey contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, B5 and B3
Although I use local wild harvested, none of that plain stuff made from clover in the regular stores.
