pf cake to colonize poop?
    #1912884 - 09/13/03 04:13 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

hi everyone i have a question pertaining to the possibility of colonizing a bulk substrate (horse shit and straw) with a PF cake? I read that you generally inoculate the substrate with grains, but that you NEED a pressure cooker for the grain to ensure sterility, which i don't have. I do have 10 fully colonized 1/2 pint PF Cakes. It seems as though you could just crumble the cake and put the pasturized shit on top and the mycelium would colonize the substrate right? or is that not right? thanks for any help.

first time do er, id go half and half, maybe 2 cakes to 2 cups of shit/straw, fast colonize, and make this a rather big surface area, first time you usualy get some contams, so you rather have a fat ass first flush.

Mixed one part BRF to one part Cow Manure/Straw, very fast and successful colonization.

I recommend 1:4 however.
