That kelp stuff
    #4083712 - 04/22/05 03:19 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

  I saw that agar and Scatmanrav had mentioned this.  Should it be mixed into a water solution and used as hydration for a poo substrate?  Can it be pasteurized along with lime/bleach/heat pasteurization water (will the beneficial addivitives withstand this triple pasteurization)?  Or would it be best to pasteurize a substrate to field capacity and then mix in kelp powder to the cooling substrate after pasteurization?
  And a ratio...dry ratio is 1 oz kelp to 1 lb. poo/straw? 

  Thanks!  :grin:

It should be added during hydration of poo, yes (add a shot of vegetable oil too, to a big pot of h/poo) and a 1oz to 1lb ratio. Then pasteurize after. I'm sure it would hold up to anything to poo would, its just some more nutes. I dont think you should be doing poo with bleach and lime though, I've only heard that for straw. Heat is fine...

Really?
It's worked fine for me...and I put straw in there.
No problem other than a basic ph. 
Really--just heat is fine?
I always try to be extra careful as my surroundings are not terribly clean.  :blush:

I dont know for sure that its not good for it, I know you can add lime with coffee grounds if you add them to poo...and personally I just wouldnt use bleach on anything that has to do with mushrooms, just because its unneeded and I dont like it. But I've done a good amount of poo now and nothing but hot water. Look for agars poo tek, thats what I follow...get water content right first, bag it up, then drop in water on the stove. No draining, no muss, no fuss.

In adv. cult. they're talking about using Kelp...
They said it contains chemicals beneficial to the myc. and should help produce more chemicals....

I'll post the link in a sec...
