i like just hpoo. if it is well weathered.
i have had nothing but beauties doing it that way.
however others have stated that a little straw helps produce larger fruit.
i dont think this is true.
my fruit are always med to xxxx large.
alot of what people just do what works for them, or what is within tier capabilities.
i have limited room for pasturizing so therefore i cannot do alot of pasturized substrate.

if you ask 20 people this question i think you will find that you will get a variety of opinions.
and your general answer will be, "do what you can with what you have and see what works best for you.
if all you can do is make cakes.... then make cakes.
if your are a casing guru.... go with it.

personally i have tried about 4 different ways and recipes.
and i like wbf to verm/hpoo and cased with jiffy mix.
always produces well and lasts quite a while with adequate moisture and f.a.e.

gl,
lost

I'd go with 50/50 straw/poo (seeing as it's a little cheaper  :laugh:), or go all out, and get some High Mountain Compost.

I've used horse crap and straw mixtures for years with great results. Recently I tried replacing the straw with various amounts of coir and like it even more. Coir is easier to work with and seems to provide the same benefits to the substrate as straw does.

My recommendation is 70% horse crap to 30% straw and/or coir. It makes a perfectly textured substrate that colonizes quickly and produces very well. I like to use a high ratio of spawn to substrate, about 1 to 4.
