straw
    #1420593 - 03/31/03 11:47 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Is it a bad idea to get my straw from petco? Possibly Timothy Hay-Kob
, or Kaytee Natural Timothy Hay for Rabbits & Small Animals?

In terms of potency, how much better is dung compared to straw? Say dung is 10, and brf+verm is 1, where does straw lie in the scale? What about fruiting? How much more could I get from dung, or dung+straw? Thanks

From what I have heard, straw is only good for 1-2 flushes, while dung can provide a lot more. Also, you do not want to get hay, go with the straw. I have heard that straw+dung would be a lot better, or just dung with some vermiculite mixed in.

Plain straw sucks...I give it a 2 to 3.

Straw only gives 1 good flush...and the fruits are much smaller than you would get from the following bulk substrates.

compost, or horse poo, or horse poo mixed with straw, or cow shit with straw... for bigger and better yeilds.

good luck!

hey road, what store-bought compost would you recommend as a bulk substrate?

and would one use this store-bought compost just as one would use poo according to your poo tek?

george and kramer are right...I don't like store bought compost and manure too awful well.

Scotts? 3-in-1 Organic Compost Mix is ok.
Black cow brand is so so.

If you add some cow shit or horse poo to store bought it will work better.

I really like using straight horse poo best...almost everyone knows this.  :grin:

But good home made compost like 6T, Junkie, Bluhoney and others make seems to work great.

Good Attitude. Experience gives you an eye for what you are reading about.
