dung question
    #502302 - 12/27/01 12:36 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

i have 13 casings of 3 various strains, pf, b+ and puerto ricans in horse dung. it was given to me by a lady at work for my "roses".
anyways, it was a mixture of dung, straw (hay), seeds, and sticks. of course i removed all the bigger twigs as i was casing.
the day before i cased i grabbed some of the dung and put what i thought i'd use in a pillowcase and cooked on low setting for about two hours, then took to my basement and hung from a pipe over a sink in the basement overnite to drain. when i cased i layed a 1/2 inch layer on bottom of square aluminum pan, crumbled one cake over that casing layer, then layed another 1/2 inch of dung over the cakes. put aluminum foil over the pans and put them in my newly revised grow room.
my question is: was i supposed to put a non-nutritive casing layer over the dung, like vermiculite or is the top layer just supposed to be dung?
this is my first attempt at dung casing and have heard rave reviews of potency and size of fruits.
any additional tips that are horse dung specific that anyone can offer?
thanx guys!!
PEACE!

dung can be used as a casing, or as a substrate with a casing layer on top of it. In fact you can fruit directly from a dung substrate with no casing. dude has done a variation which works very well FOR HIM: He has cased colonised birdseed 50-50, and added a FEW chunks of dung ON TOP of the 50-50. He has noticed that pins form more quickly in the spots with the dung, and yield is a little better.

so should i let the dung colonize 100% then add some verm or something on top or just let dung colonize about 50% and remove foil to initiate pinning? which is better? i have no experience in this area.

First off, I'd like to say, there are many methods which will work. What I'd recommend is dependent upon the compost. If your dung will colonize completely, then I'd recommend casing 50-50 after complete colonization. If the dung goes slowly, or if you just see rhizos popping out of the dung into the air(but not aggressively colonizing the dung), then I'd treat it like a casing. So how good is your dung?
