- Besides the obvious - (Llama manure is awesome!), Llama manure has several benefits:
1) It is the second highest yielding nitrogen manure, second only to rabbit.
2) It is not a hot manure like cow and chicken, due to the llamas digestive system.
3) Due to it not being hot, it doesn't burn young plants like cow and poultry do.
Does it smell?
- It has very little odour, unlike other manures. It resembles more of a wet dirt aroma, compared to driving by a dairy farm. This makes it ideal for urban gardening, house plants and raised boxes.
What does it look like?
- Close your eyes and envision brown jelly beans (Just don't eat them!) and that's what Llama beans look like.
What is the storage life of the manure?
- Tea Bags: They should be stored in a waterproof device (bag/container) after initial use and then disposed of when the bags start to break down or beans stop leaching nutrients.
- Llama Beans: Can be stored in a cool dry place and used until supply is depleted.
- Broken Down Manure: Can be stored in a cool dry place and used until supply is depleted.
