WBS spawn wont colonize Horse poo.. too dry or too wet?
    #4467232 - 07/29/05 01:59 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

ive done this method before with near instant colonization.. the only difference is the bags and possibly the water content in the bags.. its got to be due to the water levels.. the myc is still alive, its just not grabbing onto the poo. would that be due to being too dry?

Well how did you add water to it? Did you also add verm?

nope, straight horse poo doesnt need verm. i added the water to dry horse poo (same batch as last time) till it would only drip if i gave it a good squeeze. just like last time... it is a very inaccurate method but hey. thats why i am asking if its too wet or too dry.

Your question isn't exactly succinct, which makes it difficult to answer. No mention of what type bags, size of bags, type filter (if any), % of moisture in substrate, pasteurized or sterilized, incubation temps & Rh, spawn rate %.

To wet - you often get fermentation and/or bacterial bloom. To dry - it will not colonize - worth beans.

Yes poo doesn't need verm but it's always a very good idea to add some...soaks up excess water nicely.
