can't find straw
    #2006441 - 10/13/03 10:17 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i've got 10 half pint jars of alien substrate pretty much fully colonized (koh samui), and i've got 10 myco bags. i've been planning to use straw, but i've been busy and hadn't gotten around to getting some. well now my jars are ready and i can't find any straw! i went to a feed store and the guy said i probably couldn't find any in the whole county. could he just be full of shit? otherwise, what's another quick option i have?

You don't think it would've been wise to have taken care of this BEFORE starting your project? It seems like a given to me. Anyways, call around or else wait until you can find it. This isn't advanced by the way.

Another alternative would be to drive into the country, some farms have straw bales you can buy cheaply :smile:

Michael's (the craft store) has good sized straw bales for the urban grower.

C'mon man... you just gotta apply yourself. Go in the phone book and look up animal feed stores. They are everywhere. You might have to take a little drive though. Bales of wheat straw are pretty cheap. Pick one up (Make sure to bring that plastic stuff that painters use that way you don't make a mess in your car.) it'll last you forever.

I must take things for granted. What do they feed cattle in Texas anyway? I concur, this is far from advanced. Keep the simple questions to the general cultivation forum please.

I don't think they allow that anymore due to mad cow disease.

Perhaps they are feeding them environmentalists now. I bet they blend the environmentalists with oil, antibiotics, and steroids.

And to think, I thought they still fed cattle straw and grain...

I should have known better.

I believe Alfalfa straw is very contaminated prone, I mean, look at it, it's green.

I know what you mean, i can't find straw around here either. Local feed dealers only sell HAY. Classified ads only advertise HAY for sale, HAY not straw, they are two different things.

Gee guys... it's October, just check out some local grocery stores for their Halloween displays, most stores will give you a couple bales from their displays for free after Halloween night.

You could also check out some costume shops if they have displays set up.

If this doesnt work, take a little ride in the country and pull in to the first place you see a barn and ask if he will sell you a bale or two to cover your garden with... bonus if you see horses too :smile:

Hay just has more seeds than straw, so it's a better feed. Hay will work, but the seeds are really nutritious so they contaminate easily.

If you can't find a bale of straw for sale you could always go to a big art store like Michael's and buy some. This is more expensive, but doesn't have any seeds so it should work really well.

I had to drive for about an hour to find a bale of straw where I live. Drive out into the sticks and you'll eventually come by a bale of straw at one of those farm stands at the side of the road. At $5 for a huge bale it's worth it, IMO -- that'll last you for ever.
