Bucket Tek issues? [Re: bodhisatta]
    #25873358 - 03/14/19 10:07 AM (6 days, 19 hours ago)

Hi Bod et al. Am trying bucket tech and it's getting weird right from the start. I can only get coir in a loosely bundled bale like the pic shows. I weighed out 300g, snipped it into 1-2 inch tufts which filled my tote to about 1/4 deep patted down dry. But when I added 1.5L boiling water in an insulated  coolbox, it didn't even half cover the coir and after an hour in the coolbox (preheated with hot water), the temp was only 51 C and the coir was still light brown (the wet parts) and more than half of it was still dry! So now I'm just  'cooking' it in an abundance of water in a pillowcase in a pot on the stove (heated to 90 C, then I turned the stove off) and I'll wring the water out to field capacity once its cooled down. Has anyone else had similar issues?



While here I'll share a lid tek I've tried with seeming success (see pics of colonised grain jars and the ones with new lids being made today). The tek (perhaps well-known here?) is simply 7 layers of micropore. I stuck a length of tape on the countertop and simply sectioned it into 7 with a knife. The lid withstood pressure cooker just fine and is probably reusable even.



Any comments on bucket tek with loose coir like mine will be appreciated.

So even after cooking the raw coir like I did, it didn't turn dark brown. So I turned my attention to a brick of "palm peat" (see pic) which contains coconut coir I believe. I'm wondering whether this is not similar to the bricked stuff on Bod's bucket tek which I see is called "Coco Coir Mix Brick" suggesting something mixed with coir? I'm wondering this especially for the completely unscientific reason that my brick is also 650g in mass. So on this basis, unless someone tells me not to waste my time, I'm going to apply Bod's bucket tek to this brick of palm peat and see what happens. I'll inoculate a monotub of it as well as a monotub of the raw coir prepped as described above. Inoculation will only happen tomorrow, so please, if anyone has other suggestions as to how I should be proceeding with coir, please post urgently! Thanks hopefully not too far in advance!

The palm peat is correct. The stuff in the bundle :shrug: might work.

They call coir palm peat to market to people who want peat moss. There is no palm peat its coir but coconut is a palm and Calling it peat is marketing. Hence palm peat something you can sell to people who would say no to coir as an alternative :rofl:

Hello I'm trying your tek out and I have a question about the FAE that I was confused about. When youre not at home you keep the lid on and upside down. What do you do when youre home? Thanks!
