How to: JMS   JADAM
48 Comments


Hey guys, it’s Spring and we’re going to plant some blueberry bushes and raspberry bushes and blackberry bushes. So I got the kids out here digging. How’s it going Zion, Jordan? Good holes going, blackberries going over here. Maybe not the perfect spot but it’s working. Judah is tending to the fire. I might use a little that charcoal later and I just wanted to show you real quick how to do JMS – JADAM Microorganism Solution. It’s super simple, great thing to get started with if you have nothing else going on. So I’ll do a better How To video and get real detailed about it maybe another time but right now I just want to give you the nuts and bolts so you can get started. So I got my stuff going on here: baked potatoes, I got some real salt, I got some microbes I collected from one forest, I’m going to go over to the bamboo and collect some soil right over there on the other side of the fire. And yeah, and I got my bucket for brewing it all. So I’ll show you how this goes. Here we go. All right, am over at our bamboo patch. It’s all brown from the winter and I’m going to dig around it to find a good bit of soil that I want to use full of organic matter. I like this little patch over here. I’m just going to get a scoop. Looking good Full with some good stuff. All right, got my scoop of soil. All right here we are, all our stuff is in place, we’re ready to go. Got about 4 gallons of water non-chlorinated. It’s been sitting out for over 24 hours. I got potatoes I baked them thoroughly so they’re nice and mushy just like you would eat them. For 4 gallons of water you could use about 2 or 3 potatoes. I got some cheesecloth, just really cheap full sheets of cheesecloth. You can buy it by a roll. It has nice big holes. It’s kind of like fake cheese cloth. I got some soil from our yard. Nice soil from the bamboo patch and then I got some microbes that I collected in the fall right before everything went dormant. Check this out, nice and fuzzy. I just kept it in a real good cool covered area and all that fuzz and happy stuff from a great area next to a stream right across town about 2 minutes away. So I got some microbes, If you don’t have some pretty microbes, It is Spring and you can’t find anything, just get some soil from your area. Look for areas that might be rich and healthy, that maybe they wintered real well, covered in leaves or something. Use that. You don’t have to find something visible. This is JMS, it is a specific thing where soil is kind of the primary factor here. All the microbes are in there. And it got salt, real sea salt. Alright so in about 4 gallons of water I need about 15 grams of salt. It’s about 1 gram per liter of salt. So 15 grams of salt approximately in my hand is just like that. I’m going to throw that in. It is best to measure it out but if you don’t have a measuring device put a good healthy amount in your hand and toss it in. That you’re going to stir around. First I’m going to show you. Since I have just a sheet of cheesecloth I’m just gathering the corners and then I am going to use zip ties for what I’m doing. I got my stick for hanging over my bucket. I got my potatoes in my cheese cloth. I’m going to take my potato right over my water and I’m going to zip tie it in so my potatoes are hanging in that water. Next I’m going to take my other cheesecloth. pour on some of my soil – good couple handfuls. Kind of the same mass as the potatoes. I’m going to throw in my microbes. I’m not going to use actually every bit of them in this one. I want to make another one maybe tomorrow. Microbes and dirt in and gather all the corners of mine. If you’re using a bag, you can use all kinds of things. If you want to use a sock you can use a sock. (not antimicrobial) It’s really helpful to have large holes though. A lot of these fungal bodies are pretty big so you don’t want something that’s like so tight that nothing gets through. So I drop my dirt in my soil (water) along with my microbes and I’m going to tie that. All right I got potato and soil in my bucket now plus salt. Now I’m going to stir around the salt. Stirring my salt in and now I take my bag of soil and I massage that in the solution. My water is getting all brown. I take my potatoes. I massage those guys in the solution. I’m just grabbing them squeezing the guts out so all that carb and starch goes into the water. Again I’ll show the details of this and take my time show you all the materials and exactly what’s what later but for now I figure you probably want to get started with some basic things since you’re getting ready to plant and this is a great thing to get started with. So I’ve massaged a lot of my potato in. You really want to get these starches to suspend into your water so really mush that up. We are going to leave these hanging even after we’ve massage them. Because, them being in the middle and the residual material that’s in there will actually create a convection or a cylindrical current where the material will come to the middle and then go down and rise up the sides until you get this current happening all around the edges of the bucket. So here we go. Got my soil, my salt, I used about 15 grams per 4 gallons and my 3 potatoes. They’re all hanging out in this nice non-chlorinated water I’m going to cover this with a plastic bag. Allow the microbial heat to keep its own temperature and come back to this -and about in this temperature right now today it was down at like 40 in the morning but up at like 60 during the day – but it’s been warmer so at about 60 or 70, this will probably take a full 2 days maybe 2 1/2 If you’re in warm temperature- 36 hours. If you’re in colder temperature you might need to get a heater and stick it inside. One of those like cattle bucket heaters or dog water heaters But yeah, let’s go get a plastic bag and cover this guy and I will use it to plant some berry bushes and some trees in a little bit. Though I need to change to a slightly smaller stick because it’s not going to fit in my plastic bag. The plastic bag you can do without. You could just put like a piece of plywood over it or something but especially in a colder temperature, it allows the microbes to create a heated environment and that can be super helpful if it’s kind of cool like where I am kind of 60, 50 – 60 and you’re not going to heat it. So I’m taking my plastic bag all the way over the whole thing. And a lot of this JMS is not really focused on the big aerobic biology This is focused on some of the anaerobes that are going to til our soil so to speak. And so you dilute this 1 to 20 when you apply it. So that that extra water carries it down into the soil. As Cho Youngsang says, “ja ja ja”. That water carries it down deep and allows those microbes to get established under the top layer of the soil. So we’re gonna let this sit for maybe 48 hours and come back and spray it on the yard. All right. Hey guys so it’s been about 2 days – about 3 days actually -and it’s been cold. Last night it froze however our JMS is looking really good. It’s bubbling and active so I’m gonna use it today. It might be a little bit better tomorrow but I don’t want to risk it. I want to use it while its got the bubbles in it so let’s check it out. So it’s bubbling and active. My train fell in there a little bit from my sides of my bags. It’s bubbling and active and looking good I want to use it while it’s active. I don’t want to wait and have those bubbles calm down and go away. So we’re going to use it now and I’ll show you just how we do that. So if we’re doing JMS soil drench or application in the soil, we want to dilute it 1 to 20. So that would be pretty major -just so you know. So this is about 64 ounces of water and I have a 2 tbsp cup which is about an ounce. and so I would add 3 of these little cups to this amount of water for a 1 to 20 ratio approximately. I added a little extra. So that would be 1 to 20 and what that does is it puts this material in a large amount of water. That amount of water carries it down into the soil. And so I’m going to use this to water some berry bushes that we just planted as a family and I’m going to use it at a 1 to 20 ratio. I’ll use some of the remainder of this to prep some holes I have for some trees I’m gonna plant. I put some IMO 3 in that I made in there and I’ll add some JMS and that soil will be nice and ready for my two apricot trees we’re going to plant in our backyard. So let’s go water some plants. Here’s a nice berry bush that we just planted. I threw a little charcoal on there and some IMO 3 and I’m just going to drench it with this diluted JMS. Nice and soaked. Now to carry that all down into the soil and help that soil be established for our nice little blackberry bush. On to the next one. And I should probably get a bigger container for this. So back we go to the tank. You get the idea. We are drenching the soil for our JMS application. Our JMS went great and we will do a more professional video next time around. But I just wanted to give you guys a chance to get started in the Spring with your JMS. If you got nothing else going on, you can at least start that. So thanks for watching guys. See you in a little bit. Future Farmers…. wrong shovel for the job but they will get it. Beautiful lady makes it all possible. Beautiful girl and a beautiful day.

  1. I've been using JMS for 4 months now on our farm here in the Philippines. It usually takes 48 hours before its ready to use, but now that's "summer" (not rainy season) it only takes a little over 24 hours! It facilitates incredible growth and combined with JLF we've seen equal to, dare I say it, more growth and fruiting than neighboring farms using chemical pelleted fertilizers! IMHO, I've been seeing better results from transitioning to JADAM from Korean Natural Farming. What has been your observation? Keep up the good work!

  2. thank you for the quick how to this is great.
    do you use JADAM Herbal Solution at all? I'm curious to know what materials we have available here that would replace the Pasque flower.

  3. Great video Chris. Expect videos on JLF, JHS, JWA and JS too. Thanks for sharing. Also expect a video on soil foundation. Thats missing, though so important

  4. could just use dextrose in place of potatoes  ,that "microbes" is mycelium ,your basically making a petri dish lol ..I used to grow mushrooms I would clone them using "pda" potato dextrose agar

  5. Aloha Chris,
    Where is this film shot? Don't look like the Big Island. Nice place btw and great informational videos. Mahalo

  6. Hey man, I am a little nervous to add salt to my garden. My garden is already organic, I use no bottles and only raw products.i can sort of grasp using mineral rich ocean water to supplement garden occasionally. But please help me to understand how using salt increases microbial life?

  7. Thank you for an easy and thorough walk through! How long can we keep it in bucket? At what. temperature or environment will it store? Covered? Would this help any existing vegetable plants and trees?

  8. Used jms for the first time. Next day, mushroom growth! Question is, I have 2.5 gal left I need to use and no rainwater to mix with. Can I safely use undiluted?

  9. I just started my first batch of JMS yesterday. I followed the example on the JADAM YouTube channel, where he uses only 1 potato and a handful of leaf litter for like 55 gallons. Now I'm wondering if I would have better success if I had used more… Also, I used pond water, which I had questions about. I did ask the KNF Facebook group for advice, but went ahead and used it. I guess I'll wait a few days and see how it turns out. it's a learning experience, and all I will have "lost" was time spend in the woods harvesting fungal dominated soil. 🙂

  10. So would it help this supercharge this process to use an air pump and stone, or is it not necessary?

  11. How does JMS compare to IMO1? it seems you are getting the organisms from the same place, I just wondered if you've explored under a microscope the differences or have an idea how similar they are in yield?! Thanks!

  12. @Chris Trump is that an international Christian concern “infidel” shirt? I️ love it brother! Lots of brothers and sisters persecuted for merely speaking THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! I️ love your videos too, always great information, thanks. And I️ thought you lived in Hawaii? Or so your older videos it seemed…

  13. Hi Chris! Does baked or boiled potatoes make a difference? If boiled would you use the water as well once cooled? Thanks!!

  14. Hi chris. Thanks for your very informative video. I have a question.
    Now I know how to make and multiply microorganism. Please advise me how to use it for my free range poultry. Thanks

  15. Thanks Chris for the info. What're your thoughts on using Ocean Solution or SEA-90 instead of regular sea salt?

  16. Thanks for the video! I was sent over from Art and Bri’s channel. It looks like your content fits hand in hand with John Kaisner’s The Natural Farmer, though I think his influences are more Indian and Japanese in origin. Great stuff! I’m excited to work through some more of your videos!

    One question: in the video you have planned related to making JADAM, are you planning to go into the purpose and role of each ingredient? I’ve previously made both compost tea and manure tea (both aerobic), but haven’t made anything using salt or anaerobic environments. I’d love to understand more of the “why” behind each ingredient. Thanks!

  17. Thank you for another great video. How often would you do a root drench with the diluted JMS solution and does it matter which growing phase of the plants?

  18. Thank you. At least how warm is best for the environment to be before we add this to soil? Or can we do this productively winter or summer?

  19. I made JMS 6 days ago. It would've been perfect to use on day 3 or 4, but I had no time. Now it's got gross mold and smells bad.
    1. Can I still use it?
    2. This happens a lot. If, on day 3 or 4, I had thrown in another mashed potato, would that have kept it brewing until today? Or sugar?

  20. @christrump, what if you live in a very urban area/large city? Where would you go to get the microbes? What if there is no nearby forest?
