C:N Ratio and decomposition rates in Rotbots

The first weeks results of our Rotbot experiment to show how the C:N ratio affects the rate of decompostition has been published on the carryoncomposting Rotbot page  Rotbots & C:N ratio

 5 bottles were used containing different ratios of Greens and Browns : 100%, 25:75%, 50:50 75:25%and 100:0%). The higher the ratio of Greens the faster the process 

The next stage is to repeat the experiement using more tightly packed material which should retain more moisture
