Ah! Well I feel really stupid, yet again lol
I live in a vacuum lol, evidently I don't know the fancy words for these things, but I'm catching on quick ha-ha ..oh wow, you would think that I'd never used the internet before
Biochar, yes, I've seen it, I've DONE it ROFL..
10 years ago, I was digging up a spot right next to our new house for some bushes, and about 2' down, I ran into a layer of charcoal about a foot thick. It had stumped me as to why it was buried like that, and it wasn't charcoal like from the grill. It was big chunks, like someone had buried a burning stump.
I looked into the benefits of charcoal in soil amendment, and had left it there and planted new flowers and a barberry bush in that spot.
That was the biggest, fastest growing barberry bush I have ever seen in my life! We have since moved, but the last time I saw that bush, it was well over 6' wide, and 5' tall. And it was only 3 years old!
Yes, I most definitely will look closer at the biochar....
Carbon. It's a pretty major component to life
What benefit are the fish getting from it, @centrarchid
? Are they eating it, or is it more for the water? When you say waste, I'm not sure if that means that what they are eati g is being used more efficiently, leading to less waste, or is it because it's in the water?... Sorry if it's a dumb question lol, I don't know a thing at all about fish Edited by shortgrass - 12/12/15 at 6:47am
