Sterile bulk: Ruin or no big deal?
    #3903361 - 03/11/05 04:17 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Well 1) I'm a stupid stoner 2) I can't pull myself away from Devil May Cry 3. Anyway, I've been cooking my oven bagged bulk mix in the oven while I'm playing and I keep forgetting about it. The temperatures keeping rising above 200 degrees. Is the bulk being sterile going to make things significantly more susceptible to contamination? There wasn't any firefang on there in the first place (its 40% straw, 60% thoroughbred compost).

A grower I know sometimes sterilises his straw. No major contam problems.

I was just wondering the same thing, as i let my poo go up to around 190-200 a second ago. That stuff takes awhile to cool off!! I took it off the eye awhile ago and its still like 175.

Got any other experienced bulk growers that can attest to this being OK? I'd rather redo my bulk substrate (which would suck going to get more horse shit), than waste my spawn.

Your mixture was inside an oven bag, correct? If that's the case, then the temperature spike should not harm anything.

I do hot water pasteurization and purposely raise water temps to 200 for about 30 minutes to penetrate the core and get internal temps up there, then drop them down and let everything sit at 160-180 for a few hours.

Straw, however, can be a pain in the neck when it comes to temps. I don't even like working with straw because I feel that it's more susceptible to error in any deviation of temps.

Poo is very forgiving and more contam resistant than straw, but that's from my experience! If this doesn't work for some reason, ditch the straw and go with coco coir/manure for a nice bulk substrate.

Good luck!
