I was wondering what the limits were to planting into organic pre-compost material.
As an experiment my father has grown a few things be simply planting them in a pile of used tea bags. This seems to work and teabags are amazingly swift become new compost if placed on the top of potted plants. (They also keep the moisture in the soil when it gets hot).
In an indoor only apartment what sort of limits can I run into by allowing any composting to take place while the material is already host to the plant(s)?
I want to make my own compost and use the compostable material my home generates which is why I asked about Indoor composting with limited space and have started to wonder about letting the growing roots of the plants do some of the work.
Obviously I do not want to risk disease to my plants or a bad smell to my home but cannot find much information online about using this approach.
