The waste doesn't seem to have decomposed in the composter - what is wrong?

The shape and color of the waste we put into the composter will remain unchanged even after the process has finished.

A simple indicator that suggests the proper functioning of the process is the smell. If there is no bad smell of rot, then the fermentation process has worked.

When does the decomposition occur?

Decomposition into humus form occurs when the already fermented mass of organic waste is buried into the soil.

This way, the decomposition goes very quickly, because the bokashi mass was previously correctly fermented and thus it changes into humus in a couple of weeks (depending on the time and temperature of the soil).
