if you put it somewhere that seems largely bacterial that is far enough from the other fungi that it won't be dog piled it should establish. thanks for the thank you XD
it sounds like it's mostly fungal, plants raise bacteria like livestock and fungi which basically act like merchants. if you think of it like that then you'll be able to handle situations like this well in the future. in this case I would put it near your woody plants or where you want wood to break down faster like in a wood mulched area
100% i figured id ask around to see if anyone had heard differently and thanks for telling me about the different levels of firebrick that's something I hadn't realized was a thing

eric "free nitrogen in the air starts burning" is the bit im having trouble with the folks above are saying that the conversion of n to NO2 takes energy out of the environment. is NO2 able to release a small amount of energy that would add to the heat the rocket mass heater releases? i heard somewhere that rocket mass heaters can get hot enough for NO2 to form.

I remember hearing or reading about some folks doing some really effeicent rocket mass heaters where it could get up to those temperatures and i read them when oxygen and nitrogen combined a little bit of energy is released which would help support combustion. And a good while ago I think I remember reading something about a methane atmosphere or a nitrogen atmosphere and what would happen if you put oxygen into the atmosphere and if I remember right you had something that was like a reverse Flame and I think there may have been a lab testing component to it.

i talked to my grampa and he told me that nitrogen the gas cant burn, is it that organic nitrogen can burn or am i missing out on something?
