What is best straw method...
    #2157319 - 12/04/03 03:20 AM (13 years, 10 days ago)

so what is your opinions, would i be better off laying a layer of straw, then a layer of crumbled colonized WBS, then some hay, then some colonized WBS..etc till i have about 4 - 5 inches of packed layers

OR

would i be better off mixing all the of the straw and colonized WBS together and packing it like that.

thanks for any replies, sorry if this is wrong place to post, but it is cultivation related. I know it doesnt matter which method, wanting to know experienced peoples opinions.

love and light

It will probably colonize faster if you just mix it all together. That's what my friend does and it works great. Remeber to leave a little extra wbs to add to the top few inches though, because the birdseed has a tendency to all drift toward the bottom while you are mixing it. Just experiment until you get it mixed evenly.

without any straw, wouldnt the manure be soupy? Obviously it works great, but what about the soupyness

oh yeah, i was just wondering, you mix the manure just like you would the straw right? mix it all together nice and even, then let it colonize, then case it?

i am pretty confident i am ready to move on from cakes, i just didnt know if pasturizing manure in the house would smell too good and it would be soupy, do you strain most of the water out of it or something? whats the ratio with manure?

I have an idea that I was thinking of trying out and it seems to fit right in this thread so here it goes.

I have this plastic diamond mesh stuff that is used to put over rain gutters to keep trash out and I was thinking that it would work real well to form a straw wheel. It is about six feet long. You just lay it out flat and put a thin layer of straw on top. Then put a layer of spawn on top of that with a layer of poo over that. After all of the layers are down just roll it up and use zip ties to secure the end. Place that in a clean garbage bag with holes poked through for air exchange and let it colonize. Then fruit it just like a straw log. The mushrooms should grow out through the holes in the mesh.

Just an idea I haven't tried yet.
