Lomi produces nutrient-dense organic fertilizer, perfect for your houseplants, garden, or lawn. The nutrient profile, colour, and texture varies depending on the cycle you choose to run and the food waste you add.
Here's what to expect from each mode:
Grow mode produces nutrient rich organic fertilizer, perfect for your houseplants, garden, or lawn. When run with a LomiPod, the end result is packed with vital microbes to support plant health. The fertilizer produced by our Grow mode is the most mature out of all the modes–According to Solvita Compost maturity testing*, Grow mode fertilizer has a CMI of 8, which corresponds to a highly mature end product analogous to finished compost. Grow more fertilizer can be mixed in a 1:10 ratio (Lomi dirt:soil) and added to potted plants or gardens. It can also be sprinkled on your lawn.
Eco Express is the most time and energy efficient mode, creating dirt high in organic matter. Eco Express dirt can always be added to home compost or your Green bin. If the Grow mode guidelines are followed for what is added to Lomi, Eco Express dirt can be mixed in a 1:10 ratio with soil and added to plants.
Lomi Approved Mode is designed to break down Lomi Approved products and packaging. Lomi Approved dirt may have small flecks of bioplastic in it – that’s normal! While Lomi Approved products are compostable, they cannot be added to plants as they need to finish their breakdown in a natural composting environment. For this reason, Lomi Approved dirt should be added to your Green bin.
*The Solvita compost maturity test is a unique procedure using two test probes to simultaneously measure CO2 and NH3, the two most prominent gases indicating activity and stability of compost. This test is widely-recognized worldwide for validating compost maturity. (link to source)
