alfalfa question
    #2321487 - 02/10/04 04:24 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, I know that horses eat Alfala, and that mushrooms like to grow in the poo of horses, which the poo has already drained alot of nutrients out of the alfalfa, i was wondering if i could mix horse poo with dried alfalfa and use it as a bulk substrate? Everyone says to use regualr straw or wheat straw, which that has less nutrients. can anyone explain this to me?  :confused:

It has too much nitrogen. I think. It has too much of something to make it unsuitable.

Ok, that makes sence, is it still safe for me to use the alfalfa horse poo? Say mix the pasturized horse poo with verm and call it good?

I would think the poo would still be perfectly good. Give it a go.

Ok, thanks for the help, i think i'll mix the poo with a little bit of straw and verm, for air and water, but i think that will produce some amazing fruits!

poo is good. straw is good. alfalfa hay is too nutritious for bulk growing.
