choosing a substrate
    #3718659 - 02/02/05 01:03 PM (12 years, 22 days ago)

i'm choosing the substrate i will use for an outdoor cultivation of cubensis "ecuador". i think i will go for a grain based substrate, but what kind of grain? i was at my grain store and got embarassed to choose between rye, rice, corn, millet, oats and panic. according to your experience, which is the best for outdoor cultivation (with the straw+manure tek)? i'd like to use only one kind of seed, i'll experiment different mixes when i'll be more experienced.

any grain works well for spawn, I prefer wild bird seed, you can buy it much
cheaper than anything else and it works beautifully, when you do the outdoor
patch, pastureize some poo and spawn it to that for a very nice bed

well all the grains i named are sold as bird food! what you normally call "birdseed" is actually panic or millet or a mix of different seeds. oats seeds are very popular for feeding birds as well so i still have to choose among different birdseeds!

ps: do i really need to pasteurize poo+straw before use? i read that many just soak it for 24 hours...

millet. it's usually the main ingredient in a wild bird seed mix. works great for spawn but it dries kinda quick for use as a substrate.

just another question: in all teks they recommend to use only "organic" rye or brown rice etc., that is grown naturally; that's because we don't want fungicides in our substrate. but no one cares if WBS is organic or not, and of course i don't think that they care about growing grains naturally if it is for feeding animals, so the organic thing is an issue or not?
