Bokashi means fermented organic matter in Japanese. It is an ingenious Japanese system that ferments your entire kitchen waste and transforms it into the actual organic fertilizer. It is perfect composting for your gardens. The VermiTek Bokashi composting kit includes one piece of 5 gal bucket with strainer and spigot, Bokashi juice cup and compactor, and one piece of 3/4 gal kitchen compost pail. This is a convenient, easy and quick system to compost food waste in your kitchen, garage, or apartment. Bokashi composting uses a selected group of microorganisms to anaerobically ferment organic waste. The microorganisms are applied the use of an impregnation carrier such as rice or wheat bran. The fermentation process breaks down the organic matters with very minimum odor. Since the process is done in a closed system, there will be no worry about insects and smells. This makes it ideal for urban or business settings. Unlike other composting systems, the VermiTek Bokashi systems can break down items like meat, fish and dairy products. Bokashi composting is fast and on a regular basis takes two weeks. The finished product smells a little bit sweet and pickled odor, and you’ll ceaselessly see white mold mycelium coating the surface. Once the fermentation has completed, you’ll add the scraps to a worm bin or bury them instantly in the soil. They are going to take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to fully integrate into the soil depending upon your local soil biological activity and local climate.
