B. How to use
STEP 1. Put the inner bag inside the outer bag
STEP 2. Put the attached base material ① into the inner bag.
In the case of indoors ⇒ When a lot of animal waste are put in, a slight odor may come out when decompostation is proceeding. If you are worried about it, we recommend that you replace the composter to the balcony.
In the case of a balcony ⇒ If it is exposed to too much sunlight, the water content of the base material may evaporate and dry out. In that case, add water to adjust the amount of moisture in the base material.
STEP 3. Stir while well to mix with the air and make a dent on either the left or right side.
If there is a lot of water ⇒ It will rot and cause insects to grow, so please dry it in the sun to adjust the water content. This can be avoided by thoroughly draining the water from the kitchen waste when it is added.
If it is too dry ⇒ Add water to adjust. If you add waste water from washing rice, it will decompose faster.
・ You can use the space evenly by putting it alternately on the left and right.
・ Mildew is evidence that decomposition is progressing, so mix it in without removing it. However, mildew may be harmful to humans, so if you are concerned, it is recommended to wear a mask when working.
・ Microorganisms that decompose kitchen waste are living things. Replace the fresh air and treat it as if you were feeding your pets.
STEP 4. Put kitchen waste in the dent
・ The standard amount of input is about 500g per day on average.
・ Drain the water of the garbage well before putting in the composter. Water in the garbage leads to the outbreak of odors and insects.
・ If you put the garbage with small pieces, it will be decomposted faster.
・ A list of things that are easy to decompost and things that are difficult to decompost is from Here.
STEP 5. Add about half a scoop of base material ② and mix gently.
・ If you feel that the decomposition is slow, add more to increase the decomposition speed.
・ If the base material ② is used up, there is no need to add it after that.
STEP 6. Complete by covering with soil to prevent the kitchen waste from being seen.
・ Close the bag tightly after putting the garbage in. If there is a gap, the odor from the gap may atract insects and they might invade into the bag.
Return to STEP 3 and repeat STEP 3 ⇒ STEP 6
STEP 7. To the final decomposition period
・ Check the amount of water content inside and adjust it about once every 5 days.
・ The part that has already been decomposed into soil can be used as compost without waiting for the decomposition period.
STEP 8. Completion of compost & move on to the next composter
・ Enjoy your own vegetable garden using the included seeds
・ The inner bag becomes a planter as it is
・ The outer bag can be used many times as a composter outer bag.
