For a poo straw mix
    #1534562 - 05/09/03 02:12 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Gnna take a 5 gallon container and spawn some birdseed to a straw and poo mix.

first question, what should the ratio be of the poo and straw?

second would i need any type of humidification with this set up?

ive heard anywhere from 50/50 straw/dung to 90/10. My friend just said that he uses 75/25 faiirly well, making sure there is no straw on top to further prevent contams. If the container has a lid, preferably pretty air tight, you should be ok on humidity if you just mist it once a day or so. Dont spray right on it, spray into the air, and let the water vaporize a little.

humidity is moot during colonization.

at least worrying about providing additional
humidity.

I've heard the same, seems as though the best ratio has yet to be dicovered. However for all intensive purposes my friend tells me that around 80/20 straw to dung has worked well for him. Experiment and see what you come up with.
As far as humidity is concerned, wrap the sub. in a plastic bag with many holes and you wont need to worry about it until colonization is complete. Once that happens, I'd recommend a Cool-Mist and a timer.

i've heard everything from 100/0 to 0/100.
cowshit tends to be solid when it dries, and breaks almost to a powder. horse shit, on the other hand, looks a lot like brown dirty straw, so it needs less straw added. as for elephant, rabbit, deer, virginveganhumanpoo etc .... try for yourself!
