The composting process with sawdust/Ogakuzu started at the end of the year. I have been doing it for two months, and I have never smelt anything. I can say that there is no smell at all. I have only seen one insect larva, but I think it was killed by the compost's heat. It is a straightforward system, and I think everyone should do it. Here's a list of things I noticed.
The skins of slightly thicker fruits, such as mango skins, remain until the end.
There is a lot of water evaporation, and you need to replenish the water a little.
When the oil is added, the ripening process goes very fast, and it becomes really hot.
I have tried adding EM4 fungi, but I don't feel that this helps the composting process.
I think it is better to leave the compost alone rather than mixing it too much so that it does not interfere with the bacteria's activity.
When it is zipped up, insects cannot get in. If you put waste in the bag before the bugs get in, there is almost no chance of them getting in.
Where the bag is in contact with a wall or floor, it will get damp, so it is best to keep it in the air as much as possible.
I used a paper bag pulled over the inside of the bag, but it tore so quickly that the paper bag was of little use.
It was so easy that it was a bit of a letdown. I think I'll put half of it back in the garden and start again. Other than that, I feel the compost bag alive and is like a pet.
