Can You Compost Kombucha Tea Scoby?

Scoby Compost

Yes, the scoby you use to brew kombucha tea at home can be used as a compost ingredient. Scoby would be considered a green compost matter (source of nitrogen).

The scoby can be used in both a vermicompost and a regular compost pile. It should also be okay to put molded scoby in a compost heap. Keep in mind that scoby can attract pests like fruit flies so make sure it is well mixed into the compost heap.
