using pine needles after adjusting pH?
    #11267502 - 10/17/09 09:14 PM (8 years, 8 days ago)

hey all. at this time of year, here in the pine forest, there are pine needles in piles and piles everywhere! i can seriously walk two feet from my front door and grab enough to fill up several large tubs.

from the searching i did it appears they are very acidic. what i want to do is use them in place of straw(or?) in bulk mono tubs with manure for cubes, Pan. cyans and possibley atl#7 and jalisco.

If i where to pasturize all the needles (after washing them off) in a solution with gypsum and either bicarb or lime or ? would the resulting softened needles be useable in a bulk tub?

does anyone have experience growing with pine needles?

i know straw is cheap etc. and this may be a lot more work. but its either i use it or i throw it away after rounding it up.


thanks y'all!

:strokebeard:

Hmmm. First, I know that some evergreens, like cedar, are powerfully antifungal. Also, aside from some exceptions like aminita muscaria, I don't see a lot of fungus growing around pine. In short, I wouldn't try it.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

You might be able to boil pine needles and get rid of oils and resins and tannins.
Dunno about the acorns.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?
