Pondering Poop
    #4529983 - 08/13/05 01:31 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Now I know that results seem to be better with horse manure, but I am having problems finding some in the city and I already have a bag of cow manure. That being said, the bag says it is all natural and contains 0.5% Nitrogen, which from what I have read seems to be the major nutritional concern. Does anyone have familiarity as to what this percentage actually means? I'm going to be mixing it with straw as my substrate, and just wondering if this cow poop mix will suffice.

I get mine at a local riding club. I was driving by, and noticed a sign that said "FREE FERTILIZER" I stopped in with a 5 gallon bucket, and they directed me to the "manure-bunker"

Use the Yellow Pages and look under "Stables, Riding Clubs, Horses"

oh, and BTW, the manure-bunker was full of straw from the stables. I got both.

They didn't ask what I wanted it for, but I volunteered that I was an avid gardener, and would use it in the garden.

N is not the only thing in manure. Store bought crap is usually, crap.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

read up on tennstud (shroomery sponsor) if you are even considering buying store bought shit.

You will get MUCH better results I would bet.

Hum............ I have used store crap and seem to find it works well. I have used crap straight from the farm and it works better but not so much better I would never buy crap from the store again.

What it is, is what it is my Brother.
It is as it is, so suffer thru it.
