Hello and a hydroton question
    #4168879 - 05/13/05 01:18 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

After lots of reading on the site, I'd like to get some more info.

Question 1) In a setup like the one here (just glance at pictures), would it be beneficial to use a layer of Hydroton below a h. poo substrate for humidity? If so, how could it be done and how could the hydroton be sterilized?

Question 2) If colonized WBS was spawned to the h. poo, could it be applied directly onto the hydroton? Packed or fluffy?

TIA.

People talk about getting "the fear." There is simply a lack of inner confidence and comfort. Those people haven't studied any type of mind training. I suggest they seriously consider Qigong.

wtf is hydroton?

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

humidity inside the casing, dont do it. If you stuck a hydrometer inside a casing it woould read 100%

Why would you do that??? A casing creates its on humidity and moisture, you just need to keep it in a Poor Mans Pod. Do you have your setup's confused???

Plus, you don't have to waste your money on hydroton, just use lava rock in your PmP. It does the same exact thing and is a hell of allot cheaper.

Ok. It seems a pmp is used for cakes and not bulk substrate though. Putting spawned poo directly on the bottom of a large bin and casing it would work fine right? What is the best way to combine colonized wild bird seed with horse poo in this situation? Layer it? Mix it up inside the bin? Also, if there's nothing but h. poo and the WBS as a substrate, should it be kept fluffy or should it be packed?

Thanks for the responses so far!

yes you could use pastuerized horse poo...and spawn some WBS into it.

you would mix it up really good...keeping it fluffy.

use whatever size container that you like.

you would put a casing layer on after the horse poo has fully colonized.
