Can you compost blunt guts?
    #14868055 - 08/03/11 06:25 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

I have been working on a compost bin since early spring, my whole family has gotten in on it. A friend wondered if she could add blunt guts (the tobacco inside the cigars she uses to roll 'blunts') to the compost bin; I had no idea how to answer her.
It is plant material, so theoretically it would compost- but would the nicotine (a natural insecticide) slow down the composting process?
I know it would definitely improve the smell of my barrel! LoL
If anyone has done this or knows if it can be done, please chime in! Thanks! :grin:

I would assume it would not matter because insects are not what is turning your scraps into compost, bacteria and fungus are

So before u knock it, try it first and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse.

Too much nitrogen. It wouldn't slow down the composting process, it'd just be bad for the plants growing in it later.

I also add a natural enzyme compost enhancer.
As I understood it, insect activity plays a big role in decomposing vegetable matter. If its less important than I understood it to be, I'd be thrilled- I'm tired of all the flies!

the nitrogen isnt a problem but the plants would be. any of the solanaceae
family could be infected with diseases... tomatoes, peppers and potatoes
