What is Humus?
So what is humus? At first I thought it was a liquid you could pour into your soil. A sort of “compost tea”. It is a very confusing world. As I now understand it, humus is the “final” breakdown of compost into the end stage of organic digestion. Let’s say, it ain’t going anywhere after this. Humus has no nitrogen to give the plants anymore, it helps soil hold water and nutrients until the plant is ready for them.
If Mycorrhizae are the transporters, humus is the storage facility. Compost IS the nutrients that are held and transported.
