I made some horse manure tea and fed it to many of my greenhouse plants to only find that some of them went limp and died. Is there something in horse manure I should look out for? (cow manure worked well as does the weed tea).

Horse manure tea is high in nitrogen and can be harsh for new plants but it shouldn't harm established plants as long as its only used every two weeks.
