BREATHING LIFE INTO YOUR SOIL

DSC05979.jpg

WHAT IS BIOCHAR?

A powerful soil conditioner that we produce by heating up 

fruit tree trimmings under a controlled process that transforms

the wood into a highly porous carbon-rich material.

 

THE CHALLENGE

Much of biochar or horticultural charcoal widely available is processed in ways such that their pore count and porous surface area is low – and thus yields little benefit in conditioning your soil.

WHAT IS 'BREATHING' BIOCHAR?

Nature Hut's Breathing Biochar is produced in-house
with our proprietary technology, and lab-certified
to contain up to
 60x the porous surface area of other* biochar.

 

We call this 'Breathing Biochar', as the constant exchange of air

and water in and out of it's pores allows your soil to breathe too.

*Based on other common types biochar in the market.

WHAT BREATHING BIOCHAR DOES 

HELPS YOUR SOIL DO MORE WITH LESS


As a soil conditioner, Breathing Biochar improves physical, chemical and biological properties of soil, potting mixes and substrates by:

  • holding water and releasing it to the plant

  • acting as a habitat for beneficial microbes

  • retaining nutrients and make them available to plants

  •  promoting soil aeration

  • preventing soil compaction


By acting like mini storage reservoirs, Breathing Biochar

allows us to water less often on drier days and fertilize less

often as it reduces nutrient leaching during watering.

THE NATURE HUT DIFFERENCE

SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR MAXIMUM HORTICULTURAL BENEFITS

Most 'horticultural charcoal' available locally are actually small scrap pieces
that didn't make the cut as grilling charcoal due to their smaller size.

 

Organic Breathing Biochar is developed and produced by Nature Hut with soil improvement in mind.

THE ORIGINS OF BIOCHAR

We’re not the first to use biochar.
Scientists dug deep into the soil in the Amazon rainforest to unravel the mystery of some
regions that were expected to be barren as no plants grew in it for over 800 years, 
yet they turned out surprisingly rich and fertile.
They found that by incorporating biochar into the soil to make terra preta, ancient Amazonian cultures were

creating a habitat for billions of beneficial fungi, bacteria, and other important soil organisms.

MEASURE

For all edible and ornamental plants:
Use 8% - 10% by volume 
(according to pot size)


For Orchids:

Use up to a full pot volume of Chunky Breathing Biochar.

 

HOW TO USE?

Asset 3_3x.png

Mix well into potting mix which contains nutrients, for example:
from 
fertilizer / compost / vermicast

ADD INTO POTTING MIX

OR

Mix an equal portion of compost / nutrients for 2 weeks in a closed

container, then mix into soil

BENEFITS

Website BG.png
Asset 9.png

Prevents
Soil Compaction

Higher bulk density leads to

soil compaction, which

restricts root development.
 

Adding biochar lowers the bulk density
of soil
by increasing soil porosity.

Asset 10.png

Better Plant
& Root Growth

Biochar is host to beneficial soil microbial populations in the rhizosphere which are important for root health.


Biochar can also improve soil fertility and plant nutrition, for better plant growth.

Asset 4_3x.png

Improves Nutrient
Retention

Due to it's charged surface and large surface area, biochar adsorbs nutrients in it's pores and releases it to plant roots.

It also helps soil hold on to nutrients to reduce nutrient loss from leaching.

Asset 12.png

Resistance To Infections

The addition of biochar to soil has

been found to induce systemic

resistance to infections in plants.

 

This includes foliar fungal pathogens such as powdery mildew and soil pathogens such as fusarium root rot.

Asset 2_3x.png

Retains
Soil Moisture

Biochar can improve soil moisture retention and water holding

capacity due to it's porous nature.

 

It holds water in it's pores and

makes it available to your plants

for a longer period of time.

Asset 7_3x.png

Aeration &
Drainage

With it's many pores that adsorb and release air and oxygen, Breathing Biochar greatly increases soil aeration.

 

Chunky Breathing Biochar is also able

to improve the drainage of potting

mix due to it's larger particle size.
