EM-1 microbial innoculant

Recommended Posts

In one of Keeper Trout's books he has notes on growing trchocereus in pots. 


He states the following: trout.PNG


Does anyone have experience with EM-1, and what is the scheduling of your inoculation?  

What Keeper Trout provides isn't quite actionable, but I would love to hear from anyone doing this.

Just make some lactobacillus serum mate and start with that. You can find some of the photosynthetic bacteria and Yeasts in ponds etc if you want a full em-1 mix. This will get you started and if you were wanting it for bokashi etc it'll ferment and work just as well as the $20 bags of bokashi at bunnings.




i feed the stuff to all my plants, compost piles, drains, sewers and bins etc. works a charm for smells and compost

I use Great White as an inoculant with no ill effects. It's not exactly a controlled experiment, though.


I inoculate, generally, whenever I feel like it or once or twice a month during the growing season. Trichos, grafting stock, seedlings.


I imagine you can get the same effects with a rich compost though. If you already have a great microbiome for your plants it may be redundant.
