florida outdoor patch questions
    #4367015 - 07/03/05 08:07 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

afoaf wants to use 6qts of colonized rye in conjunction with store-bought cow poo and straw to begin an outdoor patch in south florida. afoaf has read moe's tek and searched through hundreds of posts. questions remain:


1. pasteurization of store-bought poo and straw is not necessary for outdoor? (some of the experienced on this forum suggest that with outdoor it shouldn't be a problem).

2. should store-bought poo be set out in the hot florida sun prior to use, or should it be used straight from the bag?

3. should poo be soaked/moistened before embedding into the earth with the straw and spawn? moe does not say anything about this (straw is to be soaked for 24 hours, but says nothing about the poo).

4. should one use jiffymix or something similar to apply as a casing layer in the outdoor bed, or should one proceed as moe suggests with a mix of poo, hay, and earth as the top layer?

5. are there any pros/cons to using a flowerpot outdoors instead of the ground? (aside from obvious advantages such as being able to move the flowerpot)


hopefully others will find these questions useful as well. thank you.

1. I did not do anything to mine.
2-3. Since I did not do anything to mine.. I would suggest drying it a bit. I think mine was a bit wet... and is part of my poor results.

4. I did just hay.. but my two patches so far both suck.
5. I did mine in the ground.. but a flowerput seems like a good idea to me. That was what I was planning on trying next.

Sorry I don't have more good info for you.

Be sure to put it in a very shady area. As shady as possible outside. Lots of trees and cover if possible. No need to pasteurise, dont mess with a little flower pot for max results, and put a layer of peat or something on top.

my patch is doing very well under a 20ft oak tree, just water 2-3 good times a day., and no i havent heard of anyone having problems with black kow brand, no need for sterilization, vermiculite, peat moss and jiffy should work pretty well in florida, you have to check it as often as you possibly can, if you let the moiture in the casing dip too much it wont pin.

good info.

but why not a flower pot? wouldn't that be "safer" from slugs and whatnot? plus you could move it into the shade, the sun, the wind, the rain, etc whenever you needed to.

so then would a less deep substrate spread over a larger surface area--a few feet--be BETTER than a deep substrate that only covers the surface area of a flower pot?



MadSeasonAbove,
i already read that link a while back but i was absolutely stunned by his grow. i will be doing something similar.
