Mono tub/ substrate questions
    #11300758 - 10/22/09 06:07 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

So i got some aged/dried hpoo from the summer.  I believe its good to go no ammonia smell, its dry crumbles, may have some straw and other things in it i was considering picking out, but shouldn't be a big deal if i don't right?

So I'm planning on doing some poo/coir/verm/coffee mono tubs.  Something like 35 percent poo 35 percent coir, 15 percent verm, and 15 percent coffee.  I'm wondering on how to go about pasteurizing all of them together.

  I was planning on expanding the coir first with some hot water in a bucket. Transferring the coir into pillow cases which will be mixed with the poo verm coffee and then pasteurized together.  Sounds like it should work right?  Should i add something for the pH?

  My final inquiry involves the monotub container.  Rubbermaid containers at about ten bucks a piece get pricey when bought in quantity.  My question is why not use cheap tight sealing Styrofoam containers?

They are cheap for a reason, just pay the extra $3 and you won't regret it.

I pay 6.99 for a 66 quarts clear sterilite tub.  And love it, the only thing better is a green house IMO.

Picked up some nice 18 gal (72qt) tubs from wally world. Need to put a window in em, but at $4 ea. its a steal.

Oh, and have you never used a styrafoam cooler? They last all of about 15 mins.
