straw or poo
    #4562853 - 08/21/05 03:57 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I'm curious about the differences between poo and straw as a bulk substrate.  Which is better?  I don't really want my house to smell like poo :smile:.

Also, what's the difference between using a grain or a PF jar to spawn to poo or straw?  Other than the grain will break up smaller than the PF jar, is there any other reason?

Last question, if I've got a whole 30 gallon Rubbermaid full of colonized substrate (poo or straw), how do I get that bad boy into a terrarium?  That would have to be a big terrarium.

Thanks!

how many jars did you use to spawn it? Did you use PF or grain? How big of a tub do you have it in?

I think poo will give you better potency, more flushes, less contams, and easier maintenance of pH. poo+straw combined is favored, but straw seems to be easier to work with and a lot cleaner. it just depends on your preference i guess. poo does work better tho i think.

oh and btw it doesnt really smell THAT bad.

How about the other two questions I had?  Guess I'll have to man up and deal with the smell :smile:

yeah i would use h/poo cuz horses already have straw in their poo and the smell isnt as bad as you would think and imho rye is better than cakes cuz it is more nutritious
