Advice Needed // Moe's Outdoor Tek
    #4467687 - 07/29/05 04:09 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I searched a whole lot and didn't really find an answer to this question. I promise. Anyway ...

About 2 weeks ago I created an outdoor patch in my backyard using Moe's Outdoor Cultivation Tek. Of course with only about two weeks having passed, I'm not getting any true flushes but more like a couple mushrooms every few days. The reason for this, I think, is because here in Georgia it's been raining very often, and I think some of the rainwater has flooded my patch and possibly carried some of the dirt/poo/straw mixture layer away, revealing some of the underlying cow patties that I used as spawn. Does that make sense ... ?

Well, my question is in regards to the second-to-top dirt/poo/straw layer that was partially destroyed by the rain. About 80% of the spawn is still covered while about 20% remains uncovered and sprouts small cubes. Should I treat this outdoor grow like I would an indoor one and "patch" the dirt/poo/straw layer where damaged? Or would I be better off just letting nature run its course and let the patch colonize from the bottom-up (since there is spawn at the very bottom of the patch as well)? Or should I just re-cover the whole thing in another layer of the same dirt/poo/straw mixture?

Sorry, lots of questions, but I want my outdoor patch to rock. Thanks.

throwing a little straw n horse poo over the top probably wouldn't hurt.
what strain? i'm just asking because you said the rooms are small.

personally i would patch it only because there are a lot of bugs outside and if you spawned with any type of grain it's best not to let them be exposed.
