Adding Chalk(oyster shell etc) and gypsum to bulk subbs??
    #4919389 - 11/10/05 08:56 PM (16 years, 28 days ago)

Everytime I have used poo from cow to horse to worm, I havent added anything(other then spawn :smirk:)
These days I like horse poo the best, but if I had the cash I think a horse worm straw mix would suit me best, one day when I have the time and cash I will do that, for now....... what should I add to my horse poo and how much??

I dont want to add a supplement, but I do want to adjust the PH , and improve texture, I know how it works, but how much should I add??

How much Chalk(or oyster shell) or Gypsum should I add to my bulk subbstrate??

Just a bit, should I even measure(unless the subb is really large)

The Chalk(or oyster shell adjusts the PH, obviously), so I guess the gypsum helps the texture, so what are some good ratios??

Poo/chalk(or shell)/gypsum????

Thank you for your time.

add buffer until youre at the ph you want, test it as you go.

add gypsum to the consistency you wish to achieve, it will likely depend on the poo itself, water content, your handling of it, et cetera.

"add buffer until youre at the ph you want, test it as you go"

Ok, that makes sense.

"add gypsum to the consistency you wish to achieve"

And what consistency SHOULD that be, I always just broke my poo up, soaked it,cooked it, spawned it.
