either too little finished product or burning down the house!

straw can be pc'd if you keep it off the bottom of the pc, but... usually people just pasturize straw. it is actually rather difficult to sterilize, hence the problem with burning.

If you sterilize straw, it will likely contaminate before you can get it colonized. Only pasteurize straw for best results.

makes me feel good to have the great rabbit answer my question.thanks. ive only gotton the straw to work for me twice out of four times.with pasturization. i was thinking that it might be possible to inccorporate a little straw with some verm. to up the potency of my buddies. im giving it a try 2 quarts colonized birdseed 1 hand full of straw and 1 quart of verm . will see how it goes.thanks for the reply

You could up the volume of your substrate, but not the potency of the finished fruits. Vermiculite has no nutritional value so adding it to straw wouldn't supply it with more nutrients. It would hold more water however which is a good thing.
