Is there any hope for my outdoor grow?
    #4332975 - 06/24/05 05:29 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I just started an outdoor grow today with some fully colonized horse poo in a bucket. The bucket is setting on some nice cool rocks under a bunch of bushes/trees. It's shaded all day from direct sunlight. I put about a 2 inch layer of dirt/poo at the bottom, then about a 3 inch layer of colonized poo, then cased with a thin 1/2 inch layer of moist potting soil. It only takes up about half the bucket so i can mist the sides and a little on the casing to keep the humidity up. I also drilled holes in the bucket for drainage. I live in Southern IL so it's kind of hot now. About 85 to mid 90's during the day and 65-75 at night. The humidity is usually about 50-60% or more id say. Assuming i mist my grow about 4-5 times a week until pins form is there any way i could get some nice fruits out of this grow? If so how long until i see pins? The poo was already fully colonized, so it's basically ready to start pinning now. Ill go back in a 1-2 days to check it and mist it some. Or should i not water or mist it any until after the first flush? I know indoors you dont water a casing until then, but i figured the extra humidity outdoors couldn't hurt. Also, would it be a bad idea to put a thin layer of straw on top of the casing to keep moisture in better?

You're missing a key ingredient: straw. I find my outdoor plots do significantly better and resist contams that with straight poo, plus the fruits are bigger and give out more flushes. Search moe's outdoor tek.

straw on top, or straw mixed in with the poop?
