    #2258653 - 01/21/04 03:05 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

itd hard to do so cause of the verm layer but you can do grain to grain. I would just start a new jar and do grain to grain transfer, But if you want to use the spent cakes to innoc WBS just be very sterile

Well, thanks for the quick replies. I think i didn't explain myself well enough. We have about 15+ birds which get fresh bird seed everyday. i was curious if the seed hulls and shells would work as  a substrate. i plan on puttin' together a glovebox and a.s.a.p. i'll be gettin' a PC. well, before i go askin' more ?'s i'll get goin, thnx again 4 all the help, you folks are great...so far :grin:

seed hulls and shells? I don't think so, alot of folks used HULLED millet instead of WBS because the shells take up space without providing signifigant nutrition to the myc.
