The Smells of Bulk
    #4378038 - 07/07/05 01:06 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hey everyone  :cool:

A firend of a friend has started his first bulk grow of PF Classic (kicking it old school).  He is using straw and cow poo with corn and rye spawn as spawn.

He has goten cobweb before but the spawn that he used was nice and healthy.  It has been 3 days and the Myc is popping up through the corners of the substrate and things are looking good.

However there is also a acidish smell when he takes the lid off.  Now it could jus be the straw and poo mixing together but this is his first bulk grow so he does not know.  He used Micheasl straw and organic cow poo from the nursery.  The poo was hand sifted to get all of the junk out.  Its all in a big rubbermade and it should be doign fine as far as oxygen and CO2 goes. 

If you have any suggestions or experience he would apprciate hearing it.  :thumbup:

Its quite likly the bulk. If it smells earthy at all, or like a barn...that is good...if its a sweet, pungent stink..or sour..that doesnt sound good. Otherwise its probably normal. Bulk does smell a bit different.
