KNF Microbes can be collected in drought and in desert like conditions with ease, and it makes sense to do so, because you will be collecting drought tolerant microbes that will have added benefit to your region and changing climate conditions.
The key to this is to spray the area you would like to collect from with a formula containing
- KNF Medicine 1:1000
- KNF Food 1:500
- KNF Cleanser 1:500
- KNF Fuel 1:1000
If you do not have all the solutions, use what you have.
The formula is sprayed in a 6 foot radius around the area you would like to collect from for 5 days in the evening before your collection. Then once you set the box, you can spray once more around the box the following day, making sure not to spray directly on the box as you want the now very active and well fed microbes to actually make those last few inches to the box without taking the easy route of following the liquid you’ve deployed. This gets the most well adapted microbes to colonize your starch in the box.
The box should be set with the usual procedure.
Also when deploying the microbes after going through the cultivation procedure, it is extremely beneficial in a desert or drought prone area to be incorporating biochar into your practices. Just a few small nuggets of char can make a huge difference when placed by a new seedling or transplant. The microbes will use the char to hold water, and the electrical charge of the char also helps them to pump water in the soil.
There is a lot of water in the air in desert environments, and having the char in the soil with microbial life enables them to condensate the water out of the air and bring it into the soil as well as storing it in their bodies.
