for IMO3 you want about a 50/50 mix of carbs n carbon ie: a grain is high in carbs and its husk/hull is high in carbon ….from what im reading a moringa seed is high in amino acids, vitamins and minerals not high in carb this looks to me a better fit in some IMO5 (The moringa seed oil has vitamins and minerals with essential amino acids in an abundant amount.) IMO3 is giving the microbes the perfect place to propagate plenty of carbs for food and plenty of carbon for living space… IMO5 is a nutrient rich ” fertilizer ” used to top dress to add microbes and nutrients to soil.. it looks to me the best use of moringa in KNF would be FPJ there is tons of good stuff in moringa leaves and FPJ would bring all the best parts out… JLF would be another great use …drying and grinding the seed/pod to add to IMO5 even sprouting the seed to unlock enzymes before drying and grinding creating your own moringa seed meal… iv also seen on the youtube people will grow it just to use as a chop n drop
Thanks for the answer. Would cornmeal and woodchips work?
yes that should work ..start with a 50/50 mix i know its hard to figure that 50/50 when u r working with fine ground flours and large woodchips and u might need to go more 60/40 carbs to carbon in that mix i know when i did a IMO3 out of flour and charcoal i wish i had added more flour to my mix i think it would have given me better results overall i think the fineness of the grind was used up to fast and dident give me the intended results i was looking for ….but also using woodchips rather then char it might have worked better cause there is a bit of carbs in the woodchips also and it might have been the bit of fuel i was missing ..ultimately if the first try dont work out just try again change what u did a bit and make another run try in small runs till u get the mix that gives u the results u r looking for then step it up and all the not so good runs just add them to your compost and u will end up with amazing compost ..i personally have found that making FMC is what works best for me in my garden …….happy experimenting
Thanks. I will get on it.
