POO vs COMPOSTED POO
    #4396581 - 07/12/05 06:27 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I can get a 40lb bag of "Composted Cow Manure" for 4$ or I can go out to a farm, collect a bunch of fresh poo and dry it. Well its a hell of allot easier to buy some composted poo since I live in an apartment and drying it there well... You get the point.

So basically am I going to get the same results using a composted cow manure as I would http://www.shroomery.org/forums/upload.php
Put picture(s) in this post.using fresh manure?

Thanks, Fungi x

No! Store bought manure is worthless, for growing mush in or outdoors!

The best store bought manure that I have seen, besides dehydrated cow manure, has only contained about 10% real cow manure.

I purchased Tex-Gro dehy cow manure from a local nursery.
The bag indicates it has been aged and dehydrated.
I have had great success using 90% straw mixed with 10% dehy manure. Pasteurized in hot water for 1.5 hours.
Spawn with wbs or rye.

I have the same issue. Are there any good ideas out there for leeching/drying poo for a person living in an apartment? BTW, I don't have a balcony. :frown:

Black Kow doesnt produce flushes like this:



Although granted you have had some good results. Of course you are 1 of 4 people I've seen do what your doing, and 2 failed, 2 including yourself had "success" I have yet to see store bought manure produce anywhere near field picked. All that shit you had out there, if was good shit, you'd have had POUNDS instead of just a QP.

I have heard mixed opinions on Black Kow. I did see your thread about the Black Kow. Hilarious BTW! I especially liked the part about the nice nipples on the shrooms making you horny LOL!

My problem is, I already have about 50 pounds of poo. It isn't completely dried yet and I don't want to imagine what my neighbors would think if I laid out a big tarp in the sun w/some poo on it. I've thought about using the oven on a low setting to dry it, but my wife would probably cut my balls off if she found out I used the oven for that!

To buy large amounts can get pretty expensive, not to mention shipping costs that come with larger orders. Besides, who wants to pay for shit? :crazy:

I found dehydrated stuff around here, I forget the name cause I don't keep it in the bag. Its only $8 for a 40lb bag. I couldn't find anything at the orange or blue stores, I found the dehydrated stuff at a smaller local lawn supply place.

Well, expensive? Order 20 pounds and up until the end of the month, since buy 2 get 1 free, thats 30 pounds for 60 bucks. 8 dollar shipping on ALL orders under 100 pounds (wholesale). Thats 30 pounds for 68 bucks, of quality, already dried, product shipped right to my door, compacted in a very small box. That turns into about 90 pounds of wet bulk substrate...thats enough to grow 3-5 pounds of shrooms..for 68 bucks.

Who wants to pay for shit? ME!



Dont get me wrong, If I could get it free, I would..but I'm sure as hell not gonna buy bags and bags and bags of shit from a store to get the same 3-5 pounds. I only have so much fruiting space and Id rather fill it with solid mushrooms.

I already got about 50 pounds... for free! I just need to figure out how to dry out the portions that aren't dry yet. If I didn't have access to any, I agree that Tenn Stud would be the way to go, but I do, so it doesn't make sense to pay for it just because it's dried out already. Unless, of course, the shit that comes out of horses asses in Tennessee is better than that of horses in other states LOL! :wink:

You know if its weathered aged, and been in the sun long enough (water and UV are the important things there) then you dont have to dry it out completly afterwords. The dry stuff is collected because its usualy more assured that it has been treated properly. Your ratios are also "off" without knowing the water content of the poo when you put it in, not really a huge deal though..

I havnt done it before, only gotten dried stuff...but theres no reason it shouldnt work.
