I wonder though, does this stuff supposedly stay toxic, or can it become useful with time...like maybe a month or two? Or doesn't that supposed food in the soil ever become safe to use? I'm guessing it does, which is why I'm having such great results. Finished composts are much better to use for worm tea creation because they are much more uniform in composition, and the vast majority (if not all) the potentially harmful compounds have been converted into something more stabilized. The microbial community present in these materials tends to be more beneficial as well. Oh, and this is particularly interesting: Again, I’m not trying to say that leachate is “poison” and should never be used – I just recommend taking some extra steps, or at least using it with caution. I would probably dilute it and aerate with an aquarium air stone before using it myself. You can probably get away with using it outdoors and with hardy plants, but I certainly wouldn’t recommend putting it straight on houseplants or using with plants that tend to be a little temperamental. So...even if it is unfinished compost, it's still going to produce useful teas in the end...if one were worried about making tea? I wonder if, by dilute he could also mean mix well with other ingredients in an effort to make a supersoil?
