no horse shit, how does this bulk mix sound?
    #4118149 - 05/01/05 11:14 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

2 parts verm

1 part organic worm castings
1 part organic composted cow manure (+ humous)(from meijer)

might it be better to do 2 parts of one or the other only?

I think you should do a test spawning with that composted cow manure... Composted cow manure in stores very often just plain doesnt work. Check out agars thread on storebought manure.

I personally have tryed a couple diffrent types of composted manure with horrific results.


--------------------
I have 29 Strains as of current.. I LOVE TO TRADE. See my bio for the strains I currently have.

I seek: Strains I don't have, exotic species, Edibles, Vacutainers, A accurate scale, chicken manure, worm castings, worms for making my own worm castings, plastic lids for mason jars, light malt extract, Kelp Meal, A Ph Tester, A microscope.

Do a search on The Skippy TEK(it's in the FAQ section somewhere under the BULK TEKS). Also do a search on using Straw as a bulk substrate.

ive heard too many bad things abotu straw to recommend it.

as for the composted cow manure? i bought a bag at wal mart for $1.77 and i got my first two pins yesterday and many more showed up today. but all in all agar is right about store bought poo. but if u get it at walmart for $1.77 for 40 lbs. then ure using the same thing i am and u'll get similar results.

worm castings- ive heatrd good/ great things about worm castings

verm is a good thing to mix in too
hope i helped

well ive got enough castings, ill prob just do 1 part verm one part castings.

i was thinking about partially hydrating the verm with tea from flax meal and then bringing it up to proper moisture with reverse osmosis water. Sound good?

Sounds like it should work, i'd toss some straw in. Using dense materials like castings and cow poop from the store you'll want to really add areation to it via the vermiculite. I'm not sure if that EXACT ratio will work, but it shoould be a good starting place. Keep us posted

I'd say go ahead and add the coir as well.  It'll add aeration as well as being slightly nutritious... GL bro :stoned:

better idea than supplementing with comp. cow.
never tried castings, but have the comp. cow,
and with:poop: for results.
