Ask a Question
  • Can I use labs for foliage spray?

    If you are a commercial grower that needs to test the final product, I would not foliar spray labs. For the home grower however, it is perfectly safe.

  • Can LABS be stored in the refrigerator to preserve the freshness and help extend the shelf life past 6 months?

    The fridge will help extend the life of it, but 6 months seems to be the top end before you get other growth in the bottle like trichoderma.

  • Hey I want to know what is your LABS made from and is everything organic?

    Its made from rice wash, milk, and molasses. We use organic rice, and buy a local milk that is all natural. The molasses we use is not certified organic.

  • Can you use this thru veg and flower?

    We use it once per week in veg and flower at 1/2 ounce per gallon of water soil drenched.

  • How do I use this? Every other week or every week? Also how is this used with seeds? Should I put a drop on my seed when using the paper towel method?

    We like to use it once per week as a soil drench. We use it at 1/2 ouncer per gallon of water watered into your soil once per week. With seeds it's best to use it in the soil once the seed is planted.

  • How long does this stuff keep and how should you keep it?

    You can store it at room temperaturee out of direct sunlight for 6+ months.

  • What is the recommended ratio for foliar spraying LABS ?

    Anywhere from 1/4 ounce to 1/2 ouncer per gallon of water foliar sprayed

  • How much per gallon for a new set up

    1/2 ounce per gallon of water soil drenched once per week.

  • Is the LABS that I order freshly made?

    We make the LABS roughly every couple of months. In the on season we may make it even more.

Rookie use! This is my initial experience with LABS

As far as a soil application, I don't see any significant changes in growth. As a compost treatment, it seems to breakdown the organics faster than not. I think i will find the best use and go from there. Maybe someone could give me some direction for applications?

Normally I would make LABS, but this spring got ahead of me and I needed them ASAP. My order was placed on a Wednesday and against my own self-imposed rules, I paid for expiated shipping. The package was delayed a four days. The team at RedBud refunded the difference without question. This is what customer service should be like, I hope other companies take note. I will forever shop with this crew!
