First time my compost bin has ever literally cooked. Leaves, coffee grinds, plant matter and this stuff and I have a steaming pile in less than two weeks. It is 45 degrees in NJ, still steaming. Will buy again.

I have tried other brands before but I actually saw progress with this one in a week. I over filled my composter with dried yard clippings from piles I had made from weeks before and had it so packed that when I spun it nothing really moved. When I checked it yesterday so much was breaking down that I had thought my husband had removed 1/3 of my pile. This is the quickest breakdown to date! Great product.

It seems to work. 2 comparable compost piles (grass clippings, chopped leaves, food waste), one treated with Ringer compost starter, the other not. After three days, temperature of the treated pile was 97 degrees, untreated pile 83 degrees (air temperature 81 degrees). The compost starter seems to kick things off in a hurry, so hopefully the compost will be just about done by the time freezing weather comes.
Packaging: Some of the pelletized starter leaked out of the product box into the shipping box. There did not appear to be any damage or holes in the box, so I think it just fell through some weak seams on the box.

For some reason, my garden soil does not contain the thermophilic bacteria necessary to start a compost pile. This product is the solution. Mix brown stuff like leaves and green stuff like grass in a 2:1 ratio and use this for bacteria, water well and you will have a hot pile in two days!

Used the Activator and it really sped up the process. I was having a slow go before I used this, so highly recommend.

This has proven to be a very effective and fast working compost starter. The only problem I have with the product is it is not listed as "Organic", and the specific sources of the ingredients are unknown. Therefore, I cannot recommend this product for use in organic, food producing gardens. Nevertheless, for flower beds, ornamental (non-fruit bearing... fruit you intend to eat) trees, and other general and miscellaneous gardening uses - the "fruits" born from this product's composting duties turn out relatively quickly and as advertised. In fact, this product has nearly cut my grass clipping composting time in half.

This really did make a difference in the time it took my compost to break down. I think it is a good value and a nice way to get things moving along in the compost pile.
