Straw, Poo, WBS dunking question???
    #2997337 - 08/12/04 09:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Should or could a freshly colonized Straw, Poo, WBS bed (12"x6"x2") be dunked before casing?

Thanks for any input!!

Im curious as well. I think you can. Maybe wait until second flush to ensure its fully colonized before introducing it to a contam prone dunk.

Is the main benefit of dunking: hydrating the substrate for bigger yields and more flushes?

Does the cold and the water during a dunk fight contams at all?

No I mixed the WBS, Straw, and Poo to make a bulk substrate. When it is 100% colonized - I will case it with verm/coir.

Yes, I soaked it in lime this time before pastuerization. I had a bunch of green mold on a previous try, so tried the lime!! I hope it helps.

well in combining the answers to both of your posts. and without a furtherence of my typing i hope this link may help. however i would presume if you made it this far in the substrate biz, you would know about overlay and dunking.

good luck
