One thing is certain: the finer the biochar the better.

The easiest way to powder your char after it is produced and hosed down with water to stop from burning is obtain a small concrete mixer and throw some decent sized rocks in to crush the char into a powder.

This makes the whole assimilation process front to back more seemless



The other thing is biochar lasts virtually forever in the soil so the idea is to continue planting in the same spot and charge the soil with various teas when needed and eventually the charge is self maintained through the expansion of the biosphere under the soil.

Last little tidbit: I have heard this TP can increase dozens of feet into the soil over time through water carry/transport eventually reaching the water table/well and creating a water/electric connection with the soil surface transporting microbes and electricity through the fungus web from the well to the surface which also cleans the well water and expands the bioweb even faster.

Happy growing

Final note: covering the amendments/soil that are directly in the ground with any raw carbon material (leaves,sticks,chips,grass,) will burn into biochar over time usually ~3 years to total burn but doubles in use by trapping water in the soil further aiding the effort to eliminate bringing in a separate water source

Great idea with the cement mixer xet!

You won't make biochar with carbon as mulch but it will slowly break down into humus. This is mostly due to fungal activity and for sure biochar can increase all beneficial life and water retention (especially in sandy soils) in the soil including the ones that break down lignins and raw carbons. I think you are referring to Terra Preta which spreads and grows but this is still something of a mystery unless you have some new information? Got any links?? Cheers bro!
