beneficial mould in your bokashi bin

There is mould in my bucket!

White mould is good. The white mould is a beneficial fungus which helps suppress pathogens. If you have white mould it shows that your fermentation is going well. When added to soil this beneficial fungus helps with water retention and helps bind soil together.

Black/blue/green mould is bad. It shows that the fermentation has not worked properly. This is a rare occurrence and is the result of the bin not being closed properly (not anaerobic), not enough bokashi has been used, and/or rotten food has been added to the bin.
