How Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant Works:

Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant is made by fermenting organic materials, using a mixture of wheat and rice bran, alkaline water, molasses, and a culture of effective microorganisms (EM). The EM culture contains various types of beneficial bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and other microorganisms. During the fermentation process, these microorganisms multiply and become active, creating a rich mix of beneficial microbes.

When Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant is added to a grow bed or outdoor garden, it introduces a diverse community of microorganisms to the soil. These microorganisms then interact with the plant’s root system, forming a symbiotic relationship.

The microbes in the inoculant provide multiple benefits, including breaking down organic matter, suppressing harmful pathogens, improving nutrient availability, and enhancing overall soil health. They contribute to the creation of a thriving and balanced ecosystem in which plants can flourish.

Benefits of Hawaiian Bokashi™ inoculant:

  • Improved Soil Structure: The microorganisms in Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant help break down organic matter, such as compost or kitchen scraps, more efficiently. This decomposition process improves soil structure, making it lighter, more porous, and better able to retain moisture.
  • Enhanced Nutrient Availability: Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant aids in the conversion of nutrients in the soil into forms that are readily accessible to plants. The beneficial microorganisms help release locked-up nutrients, making them more bioavailable for the plant’s roots to absorb.
  • Suppression of Harmful Pathogens: The introduction of beneficial microorganisms helps create an environment that is less hospitable to harmful pathogens. The beneficial microbes compete with and suppress the growth of harmful bacteria, fungi, and pests, reducing the risk of diseases.
  • Increased Plant Growth and Productivity: The symbiotic relationship established between plants and beneficial microorganisms promotes healthier root development, leading to improved nutrient uptake and overall plant growth. This can result in increased yield, larger fruits or vegetables, and enhanced flowering and blooming.
  • Soil Rejuvenation: Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant can revitalize depleted or unhealthy soils. The addition of beneficial microorganisms helps restore microbial diversity and activity, rejuvenating the soil and promoting long-term fertility.

Results of Using Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant:

By incorporating Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant into a grow bed or outdoor garden, you can expect to see several positive results: a. Healthier Plants: The symbiotic relationship between plants and beneficial microorganisms supports improved plant health and vigor. Plants may exhibit stronger stems, greener leaves, and increased resistance to diseases and pests.

  • Increased Nutrient Uptake: The enhanced nutrient availability facilitated by the microorganisms in the inoculant enables plants to absorb nutrients more effectively. This can lead to better overall growth, higher yields, and improved crop quality.
  • Improved Soil Quality: Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant contributes to the restoration and maintenance of healthy soil. It helps to build soil structure, increase organic matter content, and enhance soil fertility, resulting in long-term benefits for plant growth.
  • Sustainable and Organic Approach: Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant aligns with sustainable and organic gardening practices by harnessing the power of beneficial microorganisms instead of relying solely on synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.

Overall, the use of Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant fosters a thriving microbial ecosystem in the grow bed or garden, promoting plant health, nutrient availability, and soil vitality. It offers a natural and effective way to establish a symbiotic relationship between microorganisms and plants, leading to numerous benefits and improved gardening results.

Hawaiian Bokashi™ Inoculant also has a Premium version that incorporates glauconite, which contains over 34 beneficial minerals.  It is an organic slow-release fertilizer that contains mineral deposits from the ocean floor.  This provides the beneficial microbes access to a full spectrum of additional nutrients to make bioavailable to the root systems of your plants to create healthier plants and healthier food.  And all this makes “a healthier you!”

Bokashi inoculant, combined with green sand containing over 30 beneficial minerals, offers several advantages in the composting and fertilization process. Let’s explore the benefits of each component and how they work together to create a better inoculant:

Bokashi Inoculant:

  • Bokashi is a fermentation process that utilizes beneficial microorganisms to break down organic matter efficiently.
  • It contains a diverse mix of beneficial bacteria, yeasts, and fungi that accelerate the decomposition of organic waste.
  • These microorganisms convert complex organic compounds into simpler forms, making nutrients more accessible to plants.
  • Bokashi inoculant helps suppress harmful pathogens, prevent odor, and enhance soil structure.
  • It increases nutrient availability, enriches the soil with organic matter, and supports plant growth and development.

Green Sand with Beneficial Minerals:

  • Green sand, also known as glauconite, is a natural mineral deposit primarily composed of iron and potassium silicate.
  • It contains over 30 essential minerals, including potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, and trace elements like zinc, copper, and manganese.
  • These minerals provide vital nutrients for plant growth, development, and overall health.
  • Green sand enhances soil structure, promotes water retention, and improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the soil.
  • Cation exchange capacity refers to the soil’s ability to retain and exchange nutrients with plant roots, thereby increasing nutrient availability.

The Synergy between Bokashi Inoculant and Green Sand:

  • When Bokashi inoculant and green sand are combined, their synergistic effects enhance the overall benefits of the inoculant.
  • Bokashi inoculant provides a rich microbial community that aids in the breakdown of organic matter and nutrient release.
  • The diverse microorganisms in Bokashi work alongside the beneficial minerals in green sand to accelerate nutrient cycling and availability.
  • Green sand, with its mineral content, enriches the compost with essential nutrients, thereby complementing the organic matter transformed by the Bokashi process.
  • The increased nutrient availability from the breakdown of organic matter and the additional minerals in green sand create an optimal environment for plant growth and vigor.

In summary, the combination of Bokashi inoculant and green sand with its over 30 beneficial minerals offers multiple advantages. They work together to expedite the breakdown of organic matter, increase nutrient availability, improve soil structure, and promote healthy plant growth.

When enriching your organic garden, you have several natural fertilizing options available. One of these options is greensand, an organic slow-release fertilizer that contains mineral deposits from the ocean floor.

There are numerous benefits to using Greensand in your garden and lawn. It enhances soil structure, promotes root growth, and contributes to the overall health of plants by providing essential nutrients.

Definition and Composition Greensand, also known as “glauconite,” is a material mined from the ocean floor and used as a soil conditioner or fertilizer. It has a bluish-green color and is composed of marine potash, silica, iron oxide, magnesia, lime, phosphoric acid, and approximately 30 other trace minerals.

What Is Potash? Potash is a type of salt found in rock deposits and contains high amounts of potassium, a crucial nutrient for plant growth and reproduction. Because potash provides potassium in a water-soluble form, it is a popular ingredient in plant fertilizers.

Despite its long history, greensand remains a tried-and-true option that organic gardeners frequently rely on for soil fertilization.

Benefits of Greensand:

  1. Organic Source of Potash: Greensand serves as a valuable organic potassium source, supporting overall plant health and disease resistance.
  2. Rich in Minerals: It is one of the best-certified organic sources of potassium and contains high levels of minerals, iron, silicates, and other trace elements.
  3. Improves Clay Soil: Gardeners find greensand beneficial for improving hard clay soil, enhancing its texture and nutrient content.
  4. Enhances Sandy Soil: Greensand is also advantageous for sandy soils as it improves moisture retention capacity. It can retain water and nutrients well, holding up to one-third its weight in water.

Safety Most gardeners agree that greensand is a highly beneficial natural fertilizer for several reasons. Notably, it is much safer to use compared to artificial fertilizers.

Greensand is perfectly safe to handle, posing no toxicity risks to humans or animals. If you have pets or children near your plants, there is no need to worry about exposing them to harmful toxins.

Additionally, greensand does not harm important microorganisms and worms in your garden soil. This is particularly valuable if you have worked hard to establish healthy soil, ensuring that your efforts won’t go to waste when fertilizing.

Usage Since greensand is not water-soluble, it needs to break down in the soil. Therefore, it should be applied directly to the soil and not mixed with water. Early spring is the optimal time for application, and the amount needed depends on the intended use.

For Trees: Use 1-2 pounds of greensand per inch of trunk diameter and spread evenly over the root zone. For Plants: Use 1-2 pounds per plant, adjusting the quantity based on size. Mix it into the top six inches of soil. For Broadcast Application: Apply between 50 and 100 pounds for every 1,000 square feet of treated soil. For Lawns: The general recommendation is to apply 16 pounds per 1,000 square feet. For Flower and Vegetable Gardens: Aim for 5-10 pounds per 100 square feet. For Bushes: Add 1/3 cup per bush when planting or fertilizing. For Potting Mix: Incorporate two tablespoons per gallon of potting mix for container gardens and houseplants. For Sensitive Plants: Greensand can be used on plants that are sensitive to other fertilizers without causing any damage. It does not burn plants like many other fertilizers.
