Black kow experiment * 9
    #25300352 - 06/30/18 09:55 AM (3 years, 6 months ago)

So got this black kow idea from bluelou's shit pyle style grow. Its in outdoor cultivation, somewhere. Black kow is supposedly pre-pasturized. He said you could spawn to black kow without any prep,pasterization,etc. And he was right, just grab it out of the bag, and mix it up with your spawn, clean spawn works better,lol. Seroiusly, I dont do shit to it, maybe break it up a bit, but thats it. Thanks to bluelou for his thread!

There's been much discussion on how BK can vary in consistency, and or quality, wich can affect its performance. The cultivator needs to be familiar with substrate quality and or feel. If its too wet, adding verm can help. And if BK isn't available at a box store, then coir is a much more viable option. IMO, BK is great cause it eliminates having to match or measure spawn to substrate, and the no prep. However much, or however little, you have substrate "on-tap". But if you can't find, I would just use coir.


Heres some results from using black kow, straight outta the bag!


Heres a side by side, coir vs bk.

This was kept inside and the lid was on? Post dry weight?

Awesome thread :smile: +5

Yes, indoors, lid on till 50-70% colonized, then lid flipped, check twice a day. Last two days of growth it was neglected, except lights, timers. I basically used the bk as substrate, cased it with moist verm. Dry weight i dont have, i normally dont care.

Updated bk shoebox. Got a couple of boxes going with bk as a substrate. This one is wbs/ms spawned to roughly 1:1 sub/spawn ratio.
Looks like a good pinset!!!

Even if it works reliably (IDK about that) Black Kow is way more expensive than coir, verm,  straw, horse manure or just about anything else you could use.

Is this what y'all are talking about?



Because if it is...WALMART sells 50 lbs it for less than $10.

5$ for 50lbs...It is the cheapest, by far. Im not trying to prove anything here, just sharing something im doing. Seems to be working pretty well so far... heres two more trays,

It doesn't work very well though. None of those yields look ideal.

You dont consider this an ideal yield from 2pts of spawn?

Results speak louder than any doubter. Good on you for trying something novel and cheap out. That pinset on the last shoebox looks  :jennajameson:
