Question about straw
    #3326333 - 11/06/04 01:19 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I am planning my first cultivation project of p. cubensis (creeper strain) and I want to make cakes with straw and manure because I have direct access to both. My question is this. I have a couple bails of hay in my back yard from halloween about 3 or 4 years ago that has been decomposing slowly. Is this straw ok to use?

hay that old will most likely contam indoors even after pasturizing
cerial straw is preferable but a feed grade hay will work
either way it should be clean and dry and free of any noticable contaminates

Thanks for the replies. I want to make the cakes with the straw and manure. I can't seem to find a guide for doing this. If you guys have a link or any suggestions that would be awesome. Thank you.

IMO you should make regular PF cakes or Grains then spawn it with the straw/manure

Suggest starting with pf style cakes and progressing from there....get a feel for the fungus before getting artistic!
