Colonized Wbs to cow poo ratio
    #2831864 - 06/26/04 11:38 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

What ratio do most of you use?

For example: I have 40lbs of cow poo. How many jars of wbs should be used to kick it off?

From what I've seen in most teks, a ratio of 1:10 to 1:5 seems normal for bulk spawning.

So If AFOAF had 10 Jars of WBS @ .75lbs per jar of wbs and dumped them into 40lbs of cow poo mix. That would make the ratio 1:5.33

Does this sound right?

Yep, that sounds aboput right, though I was talking in terms of volume, not weight. (I gotta remember to specify that...) However, I think the density of both are pretty similar, so that oughta be fine.  :smile:

Ratios in bulk are usually in volume. As an approximation your calculations should be ok. I think that colonized bird seed is more dense than manure, so if anything your adjusted volume ratio would be less than your weight ratio.

Do you know what volume your dung is?

How did you figure the weight?

I get my dung in 5 gallon buckets. I suppose you could see how many 5 gallon you can fill up.

Also the reason we don't use weights is that your weight will vary drastically depending on the shits level of hydration.

Weight was based on the fact that it is sold in 40lb bags..

I see the poing on weight verying though.
