Cobweb mold growing on stored manure, a problem?
    #4694575 - 09/22/05 12:02 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Okay, I've got quite a few grows under my belt, but I've never had to really deal with contaminates before. I just went to my usual place and picked some premium horse manure. I normally store this in a large plastic container outside, but I though I would put this in my basement for a change.

I went to look inside the bin today and noticed quite a bit of cobweb mold growing on my nuggets. Now this horse manure is just being stored for right now. At some point in the near future I will be using this for growing though. Here are my questions for you experienced growers out there:

1. Does it matter that cobweb mold is growing since I haven't leached, hydrated or pasteurized yet?

2. Will the cobweb mold eat all the nutrients out of my manure if left untreated?

3. Should I simply place the container outside with the lid off for a few days and allow nature to rid me of this nuisance?

Anyway, just curious about the best way to handle this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would agree with all that but I don't have personal experience....

Yes, put it outside and let the sun dry it totally out. As long as it's dry, nothing will grow on it.
