Organic waste placed into kitchen composters Bokashi Organko and Bokashi Organko 2 does not rot - it is fermented instead. We ensure that an odourless fermentation process takes place inside the composter by adding the bran, which contains effective microorganisms. By adding the bran, we not only assist and speed up the fermentation process, but also subsequently prevent decay, the formation of unpleasant odours and the attraction of various insects.
2. What can I put into kitchen composters Bokashi Organko and Bokashi Organko 2?
You can put all types of organic waste into Bokashi Organko: fruits and vegetables, citrus and banana peels, prepared food, cooked and raw meat, fish, yoghurt, cheese, eggs, smaller bones, bread, coffee grounds, tea bags, flowers and smaller amounts of tissue paper.
3. What shouldn’t I put into Bokashi Organko and Bokashi Organko 2?
You should not put liquids (water, milk, juice, vinegar, oil), paper, plastic, large bones, ash and animal feces into your composter.
4. What is Bokashi bran?
Bokashi bran is a mixture of bran, mixed with molasses (sugar and water), enriched with useful microorganisms (lactic acid bacteria, yeasts, photosynthetic organisms, actinomycetes and enzymatically active fungi), that cause fermentation.
5. How often should I add bran?
Bran should be added every time you add a new layer of organic waste into your composter.
6. How much Bran do I need?
Bran should be added every time you add a new layer of organic waste, as it is crucial in beginning the process of fermentation. Fermentation prevents rotting and is not accompanied by any unpleasant smells. With regular use of your composter, 1kg of bran should hold for about 30 days.
