Growth experiments with bark compost






Acta Horticulturae (82): 55-57

Growth experiments with bark compost

Pot plants of Cordyline terminalis, Ficus cyathistipula and Calathea makoyana were grown in various media, including composted softwood bark. For Cordyline wet bark proved better than dry bark or pine-needle compost, in terms of height and leaf number. Ficus plants grew slightly taller in peat but leaf number was the same in peat and wet bark.

Effect of physical parameters on the composting rate of bark growth experiments with bark compost. In continuing composting trials [see FPA 2, 379], optimum O2 evolution for hardwood bark was at 40-47 deg C, with urea added as a N source. O2 evolution from softwood bark was 2.5 times greater at 60-70% m.c. than at 40% m.c. If the m.c. is too hi...
