Hello, I want to ask if there is anyone in the forum who is planting the seeds in coffee residues or whether they are adding coffee residues in the soil mix for the seeds.

I don't use coffee grounds in AP but I do vermicompost coffee grounds along with other scraps and then use them in the regular garden or the wicking beds. I've heard that they shouldn't be used without composting first but I'm not sure how much it matters. A lot of gardeners around here pick up the grounds from the local coffee shops to use in their gardens.

We add lots to our compost, but some plants will grow in it without composting. I don't add it to my AP though, it would no doubt make the water very dark.
