How do YOU charge your bio-char?
I have seen alot of different ways to charge bio-char.
Some just pee on it. Some use inorganic chems, some use act. I've heard of putting bio-char in barrel with ewc, compost and kelp, then adding water and letting it sit.
I want to do organic, so no chems. I have no problem using urine- lots of great info here about it's effectiveness.
I just want the best homemade bio-char I can make.
What's everyone's favorite method?
How long do you let bio-char sit in the charging solution?
Most importantly- how would I go about adding bio-char to my soil that is already in use?
I wouldn't think I would topdress with it, however I'm sure someone has tried.
Would I add some to the bottom of a pot and put as much of my existing soil on top, while disturbing my soil as little as possible?
Been trying to do the rolls notill thing. Some pots are on 3 cycle now with top dress and mulches added.
Or should I dump all my notill pots on a tarp add the bio-char, homogenize then repot and start over with no till.
