best substrate
    #4547860 - 08/17/05 08:00 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I am searching for the best substrate to use with a 50/50+ casing mix. This site has a lot of great information on different substrates, and many of the people seem to have plentiful yeilds. My first grow was 10 pf tek rice cakes, which gave me low yeilds. My second grow was a wbs 50/50+ casing. The process of preparing the wbs was a hassle, and the cakes contamed easier than the pf tek. I need something that will produce results.

What does everyone feel is the best combonation of substrate and casing mix? Preferably other than poo... i would think poo is the best choice of substrate, but i'd like to use something else. Thanks everyone.

Horse poo cased. Why not just go to poo? You have PF cakes and WBS down, which can both be spawned to poo. If you want real results period, go bulk w/ horse manure.

Don't bother with store bought manure, get the real stuff either from horse stalls or one of our vendors (Tenn Stud). Poo works ok uncased, but at the minimum I like to put a verm layer on. No casing layer = tons of aborts. At least in my experience that is.

Rye is ok, but WBS is better for spawning. It's cheaper, more forgiving, and can break up into more inoculation points than rye.

so basically for my next grow i should mix wbs with poo, and put a 50/50+ casing layer on top?

what do you mean it breaks up into more inoculation points? you inoculate the substrate before it colonizes... im confused.

Here is something that illustrates spawning to poo.
