Whats the real deal with the ratio of straw to dung?
    #2569463 - 04/16/04 10:49 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

My understanding is that the straw can be mixed with the dung to give more airation to the substrate. I also remember 1 guide saying she liked using 10% poo, 90% straw. Thats alot of straw, isnt it? Isnt poo a better, more nutritious substrate? Cause Ive seen some good grows off of plain straw. I didnt think it was that nutritious. So whats the real deal anyways, and what do you like to use?

I feel the best would be a 60/40 or even 70/30 ratio poo staw. Poo has a better moisture content and is more resintant to cantam straw is good for the green stuff pure moo poo works better then a ratio i feel period.

Pure moo poo sucks, too dense. Pure horse shit is fine, but you really need to add something to cowshit to fluff it up.

Yeah, but remember that the natural trends of growth are not always the most efficient for cultivation. I agree with Baby_Hitler, I think that straight moopoo is a little dense and benefits either from some vermiculite or some straw.

I like to use 40% poo to 60% staw, I think it gives a nice, fast colonising texture. Still, there is a huge spectrum of opinion over poo/straw mixtures, and most mixtures will work well if the other parameters for growth are correct.

It's certainly true that straw is more prone to contamination; when using a mixture of poo/straw, I follow Mycofile's advice and have a one inch layer of straight poo over the top of the straw/poo mix to protect the straw from contamination.
