Anyone who makes a fair amount of kombucha will know what it is like to have a SCOBY surplus! My SCOBY hotel has no vacancy and I can’t give them away fast enough. Maybe I should sell them! Well, I decided to explore my options. I can’t throw them away because I grew them, they are like my little SCOBY babies.
One day while reading about pH balancing the soil in my garden I thought, maybe my SCOBY’s could help with that! Now, my tomatoes are happy….and I didn’t have to waste any of my precious kombucha spawn.
Here is a chart that shows plants affinity for acid or alkaline.
SCOBY’s are acidic so I decided to put them around my tomato plants. Also, those were the biggest plants in my garden at the time of my little experiment.
Here’s how I did it:
Cut your SCOBY into smallish pieces using a kitchen shear or a large knife
Place the SCOBY pieces around the base of the plant
Cover with dirt
Watch them grow!!!
