is it working?
The best way to tell if your bokashi composting is working is with your nose. A sweet, pickly smell is a sign that everything is working as it should. You may also start to see white mold forming on the surface (but often times you will see no mold in a successful bin).
If things are starting to go bad in the bin then you will notice a foul, putrid, rotting smell and will likely see blue/green mold forming on the surface.
And, don’t despair. It may look like not much has happened but in fact there is a whole heap of changes that have happened to your food waste. It’s just that these changes aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Happy composting 🙂
