I have a horse trough about 16 cu ft full of soilless growing material – 5 cubic feet peat moss, 5 cf vermiculite, 6 cf of compost. After a year my compost breaks down so now I have to mix in 6 cubic feet of compost. For the next year, I would like to keep this system going for many years by just adding 6 cf of good compost every year.

I guess I want something that breaks down quickly and does not have a lot of useless material (residue) in the compost that is not being used. I have several of these water troughs.
