how to neutralize straw smell
    #2704845 - 05/20/04 10:49 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I've got some straw logs in a PMP setup, and it's starting to smell of straw throughout the house, due to the air coming in from the airstones pushing the straw smell out of the vents at the top. Is there anything I can do to neutralize this? Right now it's just venting out of the holes in the handle of the bin, would stuffing those holes with polyfill help?
I don't want to have to move this stuff outside

well ive got 3kg of cow poo just about ready to fruit and i had no problem with smells i dont use airstones until im fruiting. Try switching your airstones off and airing less regularly i dont think you will get any problems with less air flow until fruits start to form. when i first pasturize my turd it smells like good shit haha serious it smells of strong compost and after a few days of incubation it smells of mushies ! wait till you get that wifting about your house lol!


Good Luck Later NoG

a HEPA air cleaner with ionizer would probably help.

Those Ozium things that give a squirt every minute or two will knock the smell down.

The straw smell goes away at full colonization.  Until then, it can be sitting in open air, which will also help dissipate the smell, which most of us find pleasing anyway.
