questions regarding straw/dung substrate
    #310638 - 05/06/01 05:12 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

my friend's dog's previous owner's brother-in-law has made a large batch of a dung and straw mixture, and pasteurized it last week. he only needed about half to use right away. he is wondering about the other half. he plans on using it in about a week, and wonders if he should pasteurize once again (Is this as effective the second time around? Is it necessary?), or should he even consider using the two-week old mixture? the same question applies to some already moist and pasteurized casing, again about two weeks old.

thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

i would pasteurize the straw/dung again before using. In the mean while (if only pasteurized) it will just compost.

The casing is great like that. Only pasteurizing and letting it stand for some weeks ensures that good cultures (e.g. streptomycetes) colonize the soil and protectes it from contaminating later on use.
I have used 2 month old pasteurized casing, and it showed no kind of contamination at 95% humidity and 24 C for 4 weeks, without any culture growing into it (it was soil for a Salvia divinorum)...
