During composting by the Bokashi method, we use the bran with effective microorganisms that starts the fermentation process. Using the bran, we prevent the decay of biological waste. Instead, the fermentation process produces Bokashi liquid that needs to be emptied from the Organko regularly.
The Bokashi liquid contains nutrients, therefore, we can use it as a liquid fertilizer for all types of plants (more in the lines below). It is also microbiologically rich – it contains enzymes, natural antibiotics and antioxidants.
If the Bokashi Organko happens to be your best friend and you use it regularly, you may have noticed that the Bokashi liquid changes its colour. Sometimes it is light and sometimes it is extremely dark. How come? Each bio-waste is different, which can also affect the liquid during the fermentation process. That means it constantly changes colour, it depends on the bio-waste you put into the composter. For example, the Bokashi liquid will be darker if you put some beetroot into the Organko.
Also, the amount of the liquid depends on the bio-waste you throw in Bokashi Organko. A lot of fruit will create a lot of liquid, but if a cooked food or bread are added, there will be less liquid.
Don't worry about it – the Bokashi liquid still has many advantages.
