Matt Chester: Your link got me thinking a lot and even got me to make an account so I can post and bounce this off of some of you wise and diverse folks.
The PNSB live in symbiosis with carnivorous pitcher-type plants right(along with hundreds of other strains and species)?
Could you just add their water to the newspaper/bran/bucket and in effect inoculate it with the PNSB? Also, would it harm the plant if you were to remove some of it's water? I don't know much about carnivorous plants to be honest.
Of course they are also found in rainwater and ponds and such but the carnivorous plants have kind of perfected this anaerobic composting thing over thousands of years yeah? Standing on the shoulders of giants and all that.
I'm really liking where this is going as I cannot afford the EM1 bran anymore but the homemade LABs put me off because of their lack of these other beneficial strains. BIM also sounds exactly like my cup of tea.
Lots of love to all of you eco geeks :p
