Today is my first day trying out this thing I saw on YouTube. I DIY this by cutting a small hole on the bottle cap, fill the bottle with water and some homemade liquid fertilizer and stick in I to the soil near my plants.
I will have to go away soon for about 2 weeks and this is my only worry, if it work then my problem is solved.
Mycelium suddenly started growing like crazy in my compost bin after I threw in expired soy flour and some blue berries. I have no idea what will come out of this, cant wait.
Have a problem about composting.
I’ve recently setted up a compost bin using a flower pot, I have a lid on it and will open it to toss the compost every other day. recently I found maggots in my compost and I realise my compost is too wet and too much nitrogen. I’ve added more brown materials to soak up the moisture and balance the nitrogen, I also understand that I can just wait for the maggots to mature and fly away which is what I plan on doing. But now I have a new problem, mites are found in my compost pile. The maggots are wiggling their way up the compost pile onto the lids and the mites are attacking them there. I was just wondering what could be the possible factors attracting mites and if they will cause any harm if the compost is used for my plants with all the mites in them. does anybody know how they can be gotten rid of?
