Forest floor = Compost factory in your flat. Most people think the process of composting stinks, but that’s a misconception. Composting is decay, which happens continuously in the forest floor.

The end product of the process is the finished compost. COMPOT brings this natural process to your kitchen. Aerobic composting clay pot (e.g. COMPOT): Clay COMPOT pots are porous, so they breathe, cool and deodorize to provide optimal conditions for composting.

We can also do a germination test with it if we are not sure if it is ready. test: sprinkle sporoutable seeds that are easily germinating on top of the compost, water and the seeds should germinate from our compost within 3-4 days.
