What's the Purpose of Hay/Straw with Outdoor Cultivation?
    #3483560 - 12/11/04 10:31 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I was reading over Moe's outdoor growing tek, and was clueless on what purpose the hay has with the outdoor cultivation of P. Cubensis. I'm concerned mainly because I don't have any sources that have hay or straw, and if its humidity that the hay is used for, I have mulch that I think would do the trick.

Could someone explain this to me, and possibly suggest a more readily availible substitute?

Thanks in advance

>what purpose the hay has with the outdoor cultivation of P. Cubensis.

It is both the substrate and it also creates a humid environment.

Would mulch be a suitible substitute for hay?

NO :thumbdown:

Think WHEAT STRAW :thumbup:

Besides "MULCH" could be about any organic fiber / husk / wood product, most of which shrooms don't do well in.
