dunking horse poo?
    #4452051 - 07/25/05 08:33 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

edit: THIS IS NOT FOR CASING.. i am doing "giant cakes" covered in verm. i just want to know about the dunking of colonized 100% horse shit

so i recently dunked a bunch of fully colonized 100% horse poo.. that stuff came out SOAKED and dripping. i am worried that it is retaining so much water that it will kill the mycellium. All my BRF, WBS, and RYE substrates came out hydrated after a dunk.. but they were not anywhere near this soaked.
when using 100% horse poo is there a different method for hydrating it?

I had this happened to me as well. So now i just pour a little water down the sides of of the casing and heavily mist the top. I can't see a better way around it, maybe somebody else has a better method.

The extra water wont kill anything. You should be filling in the sides and adding casing mix to the top, normally that abosrbs the extra water, the rest evaporates quickly.

im not exactly casing though.. just kinda coating it in a layer of verm. but yea i did notice that the verm i put on there did suck up alot of the water.
also, not much room for evaporation insaid of a 95%+ RH PMP

how long did you soak it? 30-45 min should be enough.
carefully turn the casing on its side and let it drain for a while it should be OK.
if you are worried it is too soggy to do that, punch some small holes in the bottom of the casing tray. tape over holes after its drained.
