For newbies Id recommend using organic compost (Wal-Mart, Lowes, or Home Depot). Its easier to get and it doesnt smell like shit! I have seen very good results with it.

you have to sterilize the dung and straw? is there anyway you can do it without putting it in the PC? i dont think my mom would like it much if i put shit in her PC.

would spraying it with bleach or h2o2 be good enough to get all the nasties out of it?
