Poo incubation question
    #3783284 - 02/15/05 02:16 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I have a coupla hypothetical questions that I have been wondering about.
lets say, I have a 10 gallon sterilite, some poo and some colonized rye grain. There is going to be 3 to 4 inches of poo in the sterilite.

1. is one quart jar enough to noc up the poo in the sterilite?
2. would a heating pad work to incubate the poo, so it colonizes?
3. how many flushes should I expect to get?
4. does a pillow case make a good oven bag? if not what does?

When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

you need to use anywhere from a 1:1 to a 1:5 spawn to poo based on volume.

It mite. Sorry that is the best I can give.

3. how many flushes should I expect to get?





Anywhere from 0 to 10. That depends on way too many factors to give a good answer.

I like to use Reynolds oven bags if I am using the oven. I use a plow case when I am using water to pasteurize it.

What he said. Plus if you use a heating pad, stack your container on top of a same size container that has some water in it. This will help prevent the bottom of your substrate from drying out too fast from the heat.IMO

so I got a rubbermade 19qts

and if my formula works then
4 inches of poo/10.5 inches height of the container= .38 x 19qts volume of the container = 7.25qts of poo in the container. 1:5 ratio of spawn to poo then 2 quarts should easily colonize the container of poo

Damn_Skippy,

I do not know how many bulk grows you have done or if you have any experience at all. My experience has shown that the higher the ratio the bigger chance of contamination. I have had a 50% contamination ratio at a 1:5 which is why I try to keep mine at 1:1 , 1:2 , at most 1:3.

Just my 2cents
