Question about how poo/straw is used.
    #3314074 - 11/03/04 12:29 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Is poo/straw used as a subtrate or as a casing layer for grains? Does it really result in a huge difference from regular subtrates/casings?

it is mostly used as substrate. Poo/straw is a great source of water and nutes for mushrooms.
By increasing the water content of your substrate, you will get more and larger flushes which give you a larger yeild.

poo is used to turn 1 quart of grain substrate into many quarts of poo substrate. With more substrate you can yield more mushrooms. Its flush isn't more gram for gram versus rye grains.

So are the grains fully colonized and then mixed with the poo or is it all mixed together and then inoculated? If it's all mixed together, what kind of containers is it put in to colonize?

I have a question too...

How does pure straw compare to straw/poo, and how does it compare to just grain casings?

The grains are fully colonized and then crumbled to make spawn. This spawn is mixed in with the pasteurized straw and poo to turn lots more colonized substrate which produces lots more shrooms. GL!

straw and poo is better than plain straw.
