how about can filters, when they are 2 years old, is not the carbon in them charged? I always throw spent carbon in the outside garden but I want to start keeping it aside to experiment with a sub irrigated plantar full of carbon pellets in the reservoir. Not sure how effective, but I know someone who keeps his homemade biochar in 5 gallon buckets and uses pee to charge it.

I don't use it but pee does work.


Activated charcoal would need to be "charged". Using the word loosely.


Char tends to rob nitrogen and generally needs a food source and/or some microbial activity to give it a JumpStart.


Another avenue is to use 50% marine char for a mineral boost.

What is marine char? Charred seaweed and other ocean vegetation? Or is it regular char soaked in Sea water?
