One tbsp bonemeal to 1 lb. compost--okay?
    #4086662 - 04/22/05 11:58 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

  I posted about using yard and food waste compost for a substrate.  Agar had mentioned that it may lack nitrogen.  I have some bonemeal...and I'd like to supplement the composted material if I can.  What would be a "safe" ratio of bonemeal to compost to add a bit of nitrogen?  I'm not sure of its content right now, so I don't want to add too much.  SHould I just forget the bonemeal for the first trial and see what happens? 
  Thanks!  :grin:

Add too little and see what happens. That way you won't be taking a chance of putting in too much and frying the mycellium.

I may be somewhat wrong. As green grass & leaves contain considerable N. Since I don't know that the N percent of the content in your compost pile is. Things can get tricky.

What is the N content of the bone meal you have? If it is 2% or under, adding a level teaspoon per 5 lbs of compost should be safe.

But, it is best to play it VERY SAFE. So, if you add bone meal, I would only add a VERY SMALL amount.

Or, just give the compost a trial run without bone meal & see how it does. If it doesnt do well, then experiment.

w00t!

I think I'll just use the compost as is and if it doesn't do well, well, then, I guess I'll try again.  :laugh:

Thanks!
