Anybody Use Bio Char (Aka Homemade Charcoal) ?


Recommended Posts

saw some people talking about putting biochar in the soil.


apparently the claims are that:

is stable (which means it lasts for years in the ground)

that it has a lot of surface area and mycos and other bacteria can innoculate it easily and in vast numbers

that it helps watering because it absorbs and retains some water


so, yay or nay on biochar?

i had some scrap wood and made some up, i'll try it in with some plants later and see how it goes.
