Polyfil Q?
    #4574302 - 08/24/05 11:38 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Does a polyfil filter alow humidity out? just asking cause my jars are in good temp but really low humidity, worried they might be losing water through the filter. Thanks and PS this is my last post, sorry for taking up the WHOLE thread with my silly q's.

If it's packed in the hole nice and tight as it should be, you'll be fine.

It holds in the humidity pretty well..if they are to dry, they were a bit to dry to start off. Not a big deal, takes a little practice to get water content perfect.

Yeah I reckon practice makes perfect. Next time i'm just gonna stick to manure + vermiculite + brf. got 5 jars of those and all but 1 is cruising. U think I can just crumble the jars into a container and case? or should I use the jars for spawn?

Yeah spawn to pasteurized horse poo..20% spawn, 80% fresh poo...that will multiply your substrate times 5 pretty easily.

Like I said, only got composted cow poo, is that cool? From what ive heard cow poo has less nutrients than horse poo and thats y ppl add straw to cow poo. But i've got composted cow poo which should have more nutes than just plain cow poo. Am I way off base here or not?

Oh I see..actually composted, means the nutes were broken down. Are you talking store bought composted? Thats the case then. If your talking REAL compost, based off cow poo, that will work fine, but I have a feeling your talking about a bag you bought somewhere..that stuff will give you inconsistant and varied results, and has a poor muddy texture to begin with so you have to beef it up with straw and coir anyway. I wouldnt bother with it. I'd look around for horse stables, riding places, farms, you can generally find some somewhere..and they love you to haul it away free or they have to pay to haul it. If that isnt an option, TN Stud is a sponsor here, and ships out quality h/poo.

If you do add in some pasteurized cow poo, I'd only add in 10-20% poo, to give it a little of the poo nutes..so the substrate would still mainly be the grains. Or just case them as is for this grow and order some poo next time. Actually its not to late, they ship quickly..that is of course if you cant find it..and its not like dirt or mud or shit, its dry nuggets, easy to collect, and dont smell.

Ah, I see where you said that, I missed that post..do you have a picture from the stuff from the farm, or a description? Is it fiberous? Or mud like? Dry or moist? Is it a brand bag, or is it a big pile they compost there and fill up bags for you?
