Dog and cat poo as substrate....?
    #3270515 - 10/24/04 05:30 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Have friends who've seen and done it all but this thought just came to me.....Anybody ever use dog or cat poo for substrate to mix with straw? Usually just use straight straw for bulk because storing cow poo in a small apartment in the city isn't really an option. Got cats and clean up their shit once a week so I was thinking of putting it to use. Any thoughts? Worth the effort?

Poo from carnivores is a no-no, in the garden and I presume mycology. It's nasty toxic shit.

yeah you wouldnt want that, I think its something to do with the pH in the crap or something. If it was the pH in it and you really wanted to grow ur crop on something rover had passed then you could probably level it out with something basic/alkaline or if its too basic then add some acidic stuff to it. It would be kinda weird though having to read up on dog shit to the point where you understand why msuhrooms can't grow on it.

Yep, carnivore poo would be shit. No pun intended. Herbivore crap is the stuff, especially horses I would think, because the cellulose in the food they eat, is not broken down fully till after it leaves the small intestine, so not much of it is absorbed (Sometimes animals with this kind of digestive system eat their own crap cause there is so much broken down energy after they shit it out). Therefore, you have good nute and enery rich crap.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have any actualy evidence that this feces WONT work, or are you just al lparroting what people have told you?

On a related note my friend tried this just before he ate some LSD. Now he thinks hes an orange/orangejuice-in-a-glass and hes in a mental hospital and if anyon comes near him he thinks he's going to get peeled/spilled. Read: drug urban legend

it's recommended that all manure be well composted before being added to soil where vegetables or fruit are growing. Bacteria will survive winter freezing so fall garden applications and even "aged manure" additions provide no guarantee of a garden free of potential disease organisms.

The heat produced through proper composting will kill most pathogens. The compost should heat to 130 or 140 degrees for five days or more to be more effective. Even so, research has shown that 2 to 120 percent of the pathogens survive.

Following the hot compost phase, a "curing" period of 2 to 4 months allows beneficial microbes to outcompete disease pathogens and produces an acceptable organic soil amendmen.

Cat and Dog poo will work in the flower bed
but dont use it on your shrooms or your vegitable garden the chance
of catching a horrible desiese is very great

I wouldn't recommend the fresh stuff even for the flower beds. It will drastically lower the soil's pH due to the leaching of ammonium compounds.

It works... according to "The Keeper." Just look at my sig.

"GULF COAST TEXAS SYRINGE! EVERYTHING IS BIG IN TEXAS! Dear Keeper, I send you these pictures and spores so you may pass on this wonderful strain to the world! My cat accidentally ate a spore print and washed it down with 'Keepers Brew' when I wasn't looking. He took a 'DUMP' in your Kit A and before I new what had happened I found these monsters! WHAT THE HELL IS IN THAT BREW!?!? $35.00 + S/H " - SporeTradingPost's 'Keeper': douchebag of the century!
