Organic Mechanics 100% Pure BioChar – 1 Cubic Foot
Bi-o-char is a highly porous carbon that improves nutrient adsorption and provides a practically permanent home for beneficial soil biology. Proper use will boost yields and increase the effectiveness of your grow!
Biochar is made through a process called pyrolysis, utilizing organic matter as a feed stock. After years of working with various grades of Biochar, Organic Mechanics now utilizes the highest-quality Biochar available!
It’s recommended to mix your desired nutrients, biology, and minerals with Biochar for a minimum of four weeks before using it. This allows time for the Biochar to become inoculated.*
- Biochar improves soil quality for a lifetime, so soil performance gets better year after year!
- For Containers, mix in at a 5% rate with your preferred growing medium, such as Container Blend or Cocodelphia
- For Garden Beds, 1 cu. ft. will cover 48 sq. ft. at a 5″ depth
- 100% Organic!
*Skipping the inoculation step reduces effectiveness in the 1st year, as Biochar will adsorb nutrients and minerals from the surrounding soil, reducing plant-available nutrients in the soil solution. Work with a pre-inoculated Biochar Blend for best results. However, in some landscape situations, blending pure Biochar into soil has advantages that outweigh this limitation.
