Are you referring to sheet composting? It is also referred to as In-place/on-spot composting. Some call it , " In situ" soil building which is a Latin term meaning in the same place or on spot composting where you are going to be planting . Now are you doing this for garden beds, not orchids; is that correct. In this method, you are applying manure, leaves, and crop residue and covering it with landscape fabric. Now I am applying green manure, food waste, leaves, and grass, is that okay, and I don't have crop residue cause it's the first time. Now the other question after the JMS application a month prior is, how long apart do I do this and how long do I let this decompose before planting on the beds. Also, do I have to remove whatever is decomposed on top of the soil, or do I just plant on top of that?
