Okay so I grew some cambodians a few months back and for my first attempt...I did great! No contams and great looking mushies.

I've started 12 jars of some unknown strain(from Ralphsters)
So far they are looking REAL good. Colonizing real fast...and no contams so far.

Next week I will start 12 PF tek jars of the Z strain. Then I'm going to try the WBS with some cambos.
I've only done the BRF technique and thought I'd go ahead and try something new.

I'm going to case this time. Last time I just left them as cakes since I was a newbie at this...but this time I think I have what it takes to take the next step. I just wanted to let you all know that.

Thanks for reading this boring post.

If you have a PC (?), you ought to try WBS (spawn)in quart jars. If you have access to some weathered h/poo, colonize jars of WBS, spawn to pasturized h/poo, then add a verm/coir casing cover. Beats doing cakes HANDS DOWN.

I do have a PC but no poo.
I have the verm and coir...but I havent read up to much on the WBS. I have friends who do it and prefer/recommend that I try it.

I'm going to look up a tech for it now.

BTW, thanks.

Where there is a will -- there is a way. There are horses everywhere, stables, riding academy, horse boarding places, even horse race tracks.

Just look in local phone book. You can find h/poo, if you want it bad enough.

Once you do h/poo, you will never turn back. It's primo.

Have done some bulk now, a few plain straw, and some straw/h-poo. I hear different stories about poo and contams.

Agar is a 100% horsepoo grow in your opinion more, or less resistant to contams then a 50/50 (straw/poo) grow?

Im thinking next grow Ill give it a shot, 100% horsepoo, with verm mixed in it.

But am curious about sensitivity for contams...

Thanks,
MF

Yes..it is less prone to contam.

In my opinion.

If it is about the working with "shit" thing. Weathered dry h/poo smells like potting soil. It has a very fine chopped fiber texture.

No big deal to chop, crumble it up, hydrate it to feild capacity, fill a bag, hold bag closed with rubber band, place bag in pot of water on stove top, use candy thermo to monitor temp.

H/poo colonizes way faster than cakes, when cased - produces so much more - there is no comparision.

WBS spawn is toilet flush simple to do.


For big trays to do bulk in, buy some cheap ones @ the dollar store, simply nest two (2) togather with sheet of tinfoil between the two. That will hold out light & stop bottom pinning.



Or use GLAD oven ware trays.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

:thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: h/poo (w/o straw) is about as comtam resistant - as you can GET.

I do however mix in a little chunky verm in h/poo. But, that is just me.

Good to know. And adding verm wont make it more vulnerable for contams I guess...
Also what I like is that poo is less messy then straw. I recently jammed the kitchen sink and had to do my Mr Plumber act. That took some hours! :P

Will poohunt soon, have a syringe here I wanna try.

Ok :thanx:
