Need help with POO
    #2896138 - 07/16/04 07:47 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Ok so grandma is starting to really love poo, she  picked an outdoor(and indoor) flush off some horse poo, she cooked up and since then she :heart: 's this SHIT.

Since she uses a large sterlite container for a fruiting chamber, she thought she would use a smaller rubbermaid to incubate, a fairly large(3-4 inches aross the bottom of a samll rubbermaid) ammount of poo. :smirk: :thumbup:

So ,if she did this, she might not even have to put this  (small)rubbermaid container in the fruiting chamber.......?? right??, I mean a bulk substrate like poo ,with a moist casing  feeding it doesnt need perlite etc (right??)
(as long as the container is high enough, and she switches from a dark lid to one that lets light in for fruiting and fans and mists like normal right??)

Ok, heres the most important thing........

She has always BAKED her poo (sterilzed it) , because she has no candy thermometer , so that being said......can she STERILIZE (a large ammount) of poo???? (she has seen the archives and knows the difference between pasterizing and sterilizing) (Poo "pie's" have worked for her, some of them quite well, on larger scale she's nervous. :tongue:

She knows the mantra....Pasterize bulk subs....but can she "get away with" baking it????  (in a large pot at 180f or so??) :tongue:

Have others dont it with success?(sterilize poo), if she HAS TO, but the thermometer she will, but she is VERY VERY low on cash right now. :frown:

Also, when incubating her pies she kept them in her regualr incubator, with just tinfoil over top, however ....with this larger ammount of poo in the container.....she was under the impression opening the container up every few days for a gulp of fresh air is a good idea.  :thumbup:

But what about spraying a little water mixed H202 in there during the spawn run?????(she thought that adding ANY extra water during this time is risky and "against the rules" but she has seen people "get away with this"  :confused:

(one other thing.....what should the consistency of the poo be???, broken in small chunks??? absolute powder???, or should she just throw it in a bag and break it up until its crubmled really well)

1. get a meat thermometer and pasteurize properly. they're probably like $7 canadian.
2. place the colonized casing into a larger terrarium. while i have seen folks get away with simply lining the whole bottom of a terrarium with the casing, it's not quite as good as using perlite and may not always work.

over the years i've learned that the #1 cause of failure in mushroom growing is cutting corners. do it right if you want to succeed.
