poo powder!
    #4008146 - 04/03/05 12:20 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I recently went a little overboard on screening my hors poo.
i used a window screen and got it down to powder form thinking it will colonize quicker in a spawn run. ? can I use this powder efectivly in pf jars in place of wheet flour? and seconly, it was a good idea to make it this fine wasn't it? or did i ruin the texture to much?

You can sterilize it in jars and try to germinate spores on it, or experiment around with a nutrition broth. Good luck past that stage though.

Powder isn't so great for the bulk substrate, it will be a mess.

Sounds like a good experiment to me!~
I'd try it with a little BRF also.

I wouldn't use that poo powder for a bulk run..it will compact too much.

An answer like mine? I just answered your question...

Or maybe you meant the 1 micron answer :smile: PawPaw, just feels that alot of people try to hard in this hobby...you dont need to screen the poo to break it down to any particular size...screening is done ro remove large peices of wood/whatever gets in the poo...it will break up from clumps when you add water..just mush it with your hand. No screening really needed otherwise..

Just crumble...PawPaw was being sarcastic...as I said...he probably just feels your trying to hard to make this complicated..so he gave you a rediculous answer, you couldnt screen the poo down to 1 micron...I think even "pollen collectors" (keif box) screens arent even that small..

Yeah it was a joke...but not a very god one :crazy:
I usually cut some straw ...about 2" long and add that to your poo
I bought a heavy pair of scissor cutters from home depot that makes cutting your straw a lot easier...I was tired of killing my hand using regular scissors
They are in the garden center and they only cost like $4

I like the blender for straw...not incredibly quick, but still better then scissors.

you shouldn't feed newbs wrong answers, there are to many variables as it is. you had my ass runnin around tryin to figure out how big a micron is. common sence told me it was small(micro). yet, i thought i was wrong because you are more experienced with this shit.
jokes on me. :flipthebird:
