poo questions
    #4630575 - 09/07/05 05:46 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Alright, I'm getting my h poo tomorrow, I have a few questions for you guys.

1.  The poo is already going to be shredded and dry, well pretty dry hopefully.  It's coming from a friend who has a bunch of horses.  He shreds it and spreads it over his pasture to promote growth.

  q.  Do I need to do anything else other than remove the sticks, etc. from the poo before slapping it into a pillow case and pasteurizing it?

2.  Straw, should i use it or not?  I know this is a heated debate, I would rather not use it, I don't want to have to hunt it down.

3.  I'm using 1/2 pint BRF jars, I hear that I should use a 5:1 ratio of poo to substrate.  Is this right?  I guess I'll measure it with an empty jar?

4.  Is 4" of poo good enough?  I've read I just need to crumble my cakes well then stir it into the poo.  Is that right?

5.  Cover with foil or plastic?  I think foil was more popular with holes punched in it.  Is that right?

6.  Now, this is the $1,000,000 question.  Once the poo's colonized do I cover the tub?  I read in the bulk neglect report that I should drape plastic over it and only give it air and mist 1 hour/day.  Is this right?  I can't seem to find much more info on this.  I assume it doesn't need to go into a FC.

Alright, I know this is by far the longest post I've ever made.  5 shrooms to whoever answers all the questions :smile: ... sorry for the long winded post but I'm excited :wink:

1) as long as it is dry and doesn't smell like piss. No you don't need to remove anything else unless there are stones in it.
2) If its all ground up then don't worry about adding any straw, the h poo is mostly straw.
3) a 5:1 ratio of poo to spawn is good.
4) sure 4" is good.
5) I use foil, it seems to work so why change it.
6) cover the tub, a single tub filled with spawned poo. a lid would be good with some holes drilled in the sides and stuffed with polyfil. you should be giving more air exchange than that, 1-3 exchanges per hour is optimal.
If you are spawning into smaller containers then you will need some kind of fruiting chamber to put them in. a single or double tub tek, the tub is the fc.
are you going to case?
:peace:

I was planning to use a big tub so I don't have a FC that's big enough to put it in. So if I use the lid do I need to worry about light?

yes, you need to give them light somehow. you can cut a hole in the top and put plexiglass over it or make a plexiglass top. i suppose clear plastic would work as well.

Roads poo tek uses plastic wrap so you can see it better, I just cut a hole in the top of my lids and tape tyvek over the hole
I use a doorknob hole cutter for making the hole but thats on a big tub

How many 1/2 pint BRF cakes would you need to colonize something like that? I haven't bought my tub yet.

I spawn with 4 qt jars of colonised corn usually
I play around with my poo strength because i allways add verm n coir to the mix so it hauls ass when its colonizing
You can case it with a coir/verm mix or just fruit it off of what you have made up
Either way it works good.. you have to be abel to look at what its doing to decide whether to case it or just fruit it without a casing layer
That takes a lot of experiance before you can do it this way :smirk:
