I've read about bokashi - do you just add it to their food? If so, how much, and can you just use the sort sold for composting, or does it have to be a special type?

Sorry, I'm a bit ignorant about all this, I've read about it on the Wiggly Wigglers site. I know from posts on here that some people put it in the poo tray as well. Do you still need garlic powder, or does it reduce smells too?

All sounds too good to be true :roll:

Someone over on the INEBG forum just posted this link for cheaper Bokashi bins




£25 for a start up set including two bins and a two month supply of bokashi bran. The bran on it's own is cheaper than I've seen it before as well.



Blimey....that is cheap. :shock: I paid more than twice that for mine over a year ago from Wiggly Wigglers.


Mind you...I think they have been worth every penny.

Oly, I add a handful to a feeder each time I top it up. Johannes from Omlet told me that you can also use it in the run and poo tray to combat odour and acidity, but I've not found that I need it with the hemcore/aubiose. I also put some in the compost and wormery.


Don't you just love the smell of it?

I give the girls bokashi mixed in with grain as a treat (about twice a week). When I remember I chuck a handful into the compost bin as well. It is great for reducing te volume of poo and also neutralising smells (although now I've discovered that hemcore is treated with citronella that has got to have something to do with it too)
