Compost as bulk substrate
    #1487817 - 04/24/03 01:01 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey folks, I've only used straw as a bulk substrate.

I've been hearing good things about compost. Any ones you can buy at the store (i.e. home depot etc.) that can be used as substrate?

If not, I'd want to give a go at making some. Heard Mycota/SixTango makes some killer compost. Anyone got the recipe?

20 ton lots of aged horse & cow manure, wheat straw, spend brewery grain, produce refuse, kelp meal, gypsum, micro/macro trace elements, shredded, windrowed, turned repeatedly with a 6 X 9 tunnel turner, reshredded, screened & semi/dehyrated. C/N ratio is 17/1 .....N is 2.6

Looks like this when done.


Nuther veiw,

No I plan on growing these indoors.
Should I just stick to straw, like I always have?

Do you want to do what you always have, and get what you always have? Or do you want to try something new, different, and maybe better?

I always thought deep trays of straw performed almost as good as anything else. But I always experimented to keep it fun and to search for better things. BTW, quality compost like mycotapro was not available back then so I don't know if that stuff is hella better than straw alone.

And for the record, if you are getting good results off of straw, then you won't be impressed by any compost other than mycotapro or really good homemade stuff. You will find that store bought composts don't perform as well as straw. IMHO at least.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Okay, first of all, compost is the way to go. I don't like to use anything else. That's my personal preference but I like the results. I've used dried horse dung and cattle dung. I go to farms and pick the driest dung myself. After the dung has dried it needs to be broken up and sterilized preferably by heating it around 350 degrees with the oven door slightly open. I recommend pressure cooking the dung in 1 quart jars. Those are the basics anyway.
