Fertilizer in tea bags

What fertilizer ingredients are typically used in the tea bags for JBP?

Something organic. I’m using a 2/3 to 1/3 mix of these two, more of the cheaper one:

http://www.groworganic.com/dr-earth-life-all-purpose-555-40-lb.html

But, you could go to any garden shop and buy powdered E.B. Stone organic fertilizer or Whitney Farms or similar and put a tablespoon or two in a tea bag. Cottonseed meal mixed with bone meal, blood meal, fish meal all work…like making dango balls.

The point of the bag is to prevent the organic material from clogging the soil.

I’m using almost the same mix - 2/3 cottonseed meal 1/3 either EB Stone Organic or Dr. Earth Life pellets.
