this morning i started a little experiment, and i was wondering if anyone had any input. before i get into it, id like to say FUCK YOU to all the people out there who read my lsat post and left no replys. id also like to say thanks to all the people who have actually helpedus newbies get off on the right food. especially 3m, cause hes the shiznit. anyways, i had a buncha colonized straw cakes. which this morning i decided to case with coir, one of the cakes was lookin a little flat..and i wanted to make the substrate a bit deeper, so i cased it with 2" of pasturized dung/coir mix like 3m's dung tek. after the first flush i plan on rehyrdating and casing again with coir, then after the 3rd, im going to cut the straw layer and the coir layer, and use the middle (dung and coir mix) to spawn more straw, then recase the orignal brick of straw. im wondering if anyones tried something like this. also, the dung was pasturized in a pillow case the night before last...it was lhung out my window over nite to drip dry, then thrown in a clean plastic back untill this morning. i noticed the poo smelled like shit(i know this sounds insane)...not strong, but i did smell like fresh manure...and most people who work with straw say the shit doesnt stink. should i be worried??? the shit i started with was dehydrated, untill i pasturized it. also, how thick should a coir casing layer be, and how long does it take to colonize. i probably did mine a little thick (half inch maybe 5/8) but i dont imagine it hurt anythign. ill post result soon, if anyone fucking cares. stay up.
I have had good luck with uncased straw. Straw is its own casing and doesn't need anything else. I have never had much luck with cow shit and it does smell like shit. In theory, using colonized straw to spawn more straw should work and, I have tried it several times, but with little luck. I have no problem using azure spawned wood chips to spawn more wood chips but I have never had much luck using cubensis straw to spawn more straw.
