Using dried manure as the casing layer
    #4188831 - 05/17/05 11:00 PM (12 years, 13 days ago)

i was at lowes today and saw bagged manure. would this be suitable as a casing layer?

it's cheap and i wouldn't need to mix peat/coir/verm...

i could just sterilize the material and place it over the mycelium, right? i'm growing larger scale, will have 40-50 trays, so would this be alright? is there much of an advantage to using coir or peat?

no good you want your casing layer to be non nutritive such as coir verm or peat

as long as it states that it is all natural. Usually bagged manure has additives that are not conducive to fungal propogation.

i'm just looking for the easiest method for bulk growing. agar had a link for what he/she did with horse shit, i couldn't follow it in complete understanding though.

yea, additives. i didn't think about that really...

i guess peat is just the easiest option, it's cheap anyway. a peat/verm mix, would that hold well for the casing layer?

i didn't see coco coir anywhere, i'm sure i could find some but is it necessary?

Don't inoculate poo directly if you seriously want to do bulk i honestly suggest you read Agar tek again and attempt once you understand whats involved you realy don't want to look for easy shortcuts especialy when your just starting your just setting yourself up for failure. Read up on the basics, get yourself a pc then go for the bulk grow

if you want to do bulk it can be as easy as making BRF pftek style jars, waiting until they're colonized, and then crumbling into pasteurized manure. casing after that point is optional

it's really easy...try RK's tek also, though it basically says the same thing

i read up on that link deathby...

someone had asked if they could used bagged manure, and i'm wondering the same thing. if it says 'organic', no additives, on the package, would that work just as well? because i saw this at lowes ealier today, i'd rather buy bags of it than go looking for it.

does the bagged manure work just as good/>?

You can use bagged manure, but you won't get the results you'll get with manure from a field. Store bought manure usually contains other(not needed) composted stuff.

I like horsey poo myself :cool:
