Compost Pods Q & A

Questions & Answers about the BIO COMPOST PODS from interested buyers just like you.

1:  How do I use a compost pod?

Compost pods can be used as a bio liquid fertilizer, to make a compost tea,
plant in the ground or pot and also for water storing that increases microbial activity. 

2: Can too much compost liquid burn the plant? 

Not from a compost pod, as they are made from pure 😀worm castings and rock minerals,,ph neutral. You can pour it all over your plants,,even seedlings.

3: How often do you replace them?

I recommend to replace them once they start losing colour in the water,,each pod makes approximately 100 litres or more.
Soak for about ten to 15 minutes first time and increase soaking time as the pod ages.
As there are rock minerals inside each pod they will continue feeding for 3 months if place into the ground.

4How is a compost pod different from giving seasol or other store bought fertilisers?

Compost pods contain living microbes as well as nutrients.
You can make a living compost tea from it,,just add a bubbler and some organic sugars.
You can't do that with seasol or other fertilizers as it's not alive with safe microbes.

5: How long do they last out of the ground? As in, if I bought 10 as you suggest in this video, would I have to utilise them within days-weeks of receiving them?

They would last up to a year or more. But, are best used in a season. They do slowly air dry in the hessian bags, but that's fine,,just store in a dry cool spot.
As they air dry in the bag they retain nutrients and microbes,,they lose a little weight, but spring back to life once they soak up the water.

6:  What Microbes are in your pods and what plants are they suitable for?

They are beneficial microbes that the worms produce after the food passes through their intestine.
Suitable for all plants indoor, outdoor, veggies, herbs, fruit trees, the works,,even seedlings! 😀

7: What is the size of the Bio Compost pod?

 When I first make and weight them, they are 225 grams,,however,,
as they are in a bag designed to breath, the castings dry out about 30%,,but swell back up once they hit the water.
The pod size is 12 cm by 17.5 cm and fit well into watering cans. There is a string so you can tie them up, so they don't fall in. 😀

8: Can compost pods help repair soils that have been poisoned? 

Yes, they can help and aid in the repair of the soil web by ,adding the beneficial microbes back to the soil that plants need to live healthily. 

9: Are there different pods for different types of plants? Or is it a "one size for all" type product?

At the moment they come as one size,,and suitable for all plants. However, I am in the process of designing some for certain plants, but that's a way off yet.
The pod that is available now can be used on anything from seedlings, veggies, leafy greens, fruit trees, roses,orchids,,,also, it also makes a great foliar spray and compost tea.

10: When placing into the garden ground, is it 1 pod per plant or does it cover a certain radius?

Tomatoes, Cucumbers, plants like that would benefit from having one pod right under the root zone.
I have 4ft Avo tree and that has benefited from just having one pod.
If you were to locate the pods around the beds, approximately every square metre would work well.
The plants feeder roots, will actually head towards the pod, attach them onto the surface of the pod and eventually through the pod.  Eventually the whole pod will become an essential part of the soil web.
