Any mould growing in your bucket should be white in colour and this is an indicator that the process is good. Any green or black coloured mould is not so good and this in a indicator that something has gone wrong.

This can be a result of one of the following:

  1. Spoiled food added (fresh food should be added daily)
  2. Wet food waste added drained foods best
  3. Not enough CompostZing added -especially if protein foods such as dairy or meat products are added
  4. Excess air in your bucket (pushing down onto any food waste added to expel any trapped air will assist the fermentation process)
  5. ‘Juice’ left in the bucket bottom for too long a period
  6. Lid not on correctly or left off for a period
