Coco Coir vs Horse Poo
    #14255995 - 04/08/11 12:08 AM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Some say coir, some say manure. Which is a more fitting substrate for the cultivation of Psilocybe Cubensis? Let's see your pictures, and tell us why one over the other.

Ohhh god your gona start a war between the poo and coir people lmao..

Totally depends on your situation..  Coir people generally use coir because it is easy to get, doesn't smell and is easy to conceal when bringing into homes/apts..

Most coir growers are city folks and live in highly populated areas and tend to want to hide what they are doing..  They don't want to be see carrying around a huge sack of shit..  Bricks of coir look normal when in a super market bag lol..

Below are some coir results, with my KSS iso i average 9 dry oz first flush..

Unless you have the appropriate animals in your yard or down the block, I don't really see a point to manures.

Here's a couple of the 4 tubs I have going on right now. First one is an isolate APE, the second is MS B+. Substrate is straight coir/verm, no additives. See you all in a couple weeks :wink:

dude, why make them competitors? there best fuckin buds in my opinion... my first mono tub 4 quarts spawn ripped through 2lbs outgrow manure compost(the shit) and a half brick of bed-a-beast coir (the beast) 10 days on the dot.  it was the easiest decision of my life what a good bulk sub should comprise of...

the more complex the food source the more benifitial to the mycelium, rogger rabbit was the dude I learned that from, if you can do both wtf wouldn't you?

I'm not making them competitors, it's just that some people are religious coir users and some are religious poo users. I'm trying to find out why one over another and compare yields and what not. But it comes down to what you have on hand and where you live. I say they are equal as far as yield potential. But the benefits of coir out weigh poo IMO, like the ease of preparation, the contam resistance and uuh, the lack of offensive odor...

im saying in this study there made for each other, coir alone imo is verms partner in crime as a great bulker to any manure or compost medium, coir allows me to "spread the the shit around"  as coir being more plentiful than poo in my inventory... get mikes shit on the cheap and make x2 by adding coir...

this one started colonizing 3/25, introduced fruiting conditions yesterday, photos taken last night.
Coir/verm/gypsum.



this one started colonizing 3/24 (14 hours longer than the one above), introduced fruiting conditions yesterday, photo- last night.
Horse Manure/powdered kelp/gypsum/coir/verm. Pins galore.





MS inoculation, same batch of jars.
now... the differing colonization could be cause it's multispore, tru tru.
All I know is that I have watched the mycelium tear through the tub with manure and practically do cartwheels and pole vaults in the air gobbling up the nutrients. It leaped into pin form and demanded I let it fruit.
While the coir tub has been sort of couch-potatoish. It's been procrastinating.
They both seem to be doing their thing just fine though.
