The perfect starter kit for composting food waste right in your home.
The kit contains one five- gallon container and one bag of Bokashi.
The Probiotic Bokashi Composter kit is a unique, in-house system used to recycle kitchen scraps into an organic compost soil conditioner. This system ferments and pickles your food waste in less than half the time of conventional composting methods without odors.
Bokashi is a Japanese word that means "fermented organic matter." It can be used as a soil amendment to increase the nutrient level and microbial diversity of the soil for planting.
Bokashi can be used as a microbial inoculant in situations where a liquid inoculant would be less effective such as in composting food waste and in composting toilets.
It is for use in organic production of recycled food waste. It also helps to cultivate the beneficial microorganisms as food decomposes, speeding the process of fermentation and reducing foul odors.
The Probiotic Bokashi Composter kit can be easily implemented in an indoor environment making it useful for apartment, school, household, restaurant, business or wilderness use.
Each composting kit comes with complete instructions.
To compost kitchen waste: Lay down initial layer of Probiotic Bokashi. Place fresh food scraps in the Probiotic Bokashi Composter and thoroughly coat every layer with Bokashi compost starter. Close the lid tightly after every use to ensure an anaerobic environment.
Once the container is filled to capacity, let the pieces continue to ferment for two weeks and then transfer into your garden or planter. Allow at least two more weeks for the fermentation process to continue in the soil before planting your favorite veggies, flowers, trees, etc.
Make sure to drain the liquid released during the anaerobic process from the Probiotic Bokashi Composter frequently to prevent putrefaction of your compost.
I had given up on traditional composting, which was too difficult and time consuming. This method of composting is so easy and only takes a few weeks. The lid eliminates odors, and it is compact in size, so it is great for using in the kitchen.Review by Mary (on 5/25/14)
