store bought organic compost?
    #2554070 - 04/13/04 01:08 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Can I use store bought compost as a growing medium?

I have a large jar of colonized popcorn and a large jar of store bought compost I just PC'ed last night. Can I mix these two up or would I be better off casing the popcorn straight off?

No access to straw or poo of any kind.

Thanks

yep, I added verm and some water to it before I PC'ed, it had the consistency of the brf+verm when I put it in my jar, maybe a tad dryer.

So I should just layer both in a container and incubate till I see something on the surface correct?

make sure you don't over pc it because then you make it go skunky and uninviting for good microorganisms. Make sure the compost is organic and doesn't contain any chemicals.

mix the fully colonized corn with the pc'd compost (cooled) then incubate in the dark, you can either not case it so you can see the results considering you have a pretty clean and sterile work area or case it with 50/50+ or 60/40 and wait unitl it begins to colonize the layer just below the top surface, you have to account for grow intertia; then induce pinning.

you can case popcorn directly and depending on your pin timing and sterility, etc., come out with some big fuckin' fruits. But, popcorn I reserve for spawn because of rapid nutrient loss but that's just my preference. It depends what you want.
