kalonite?
    #6511081 - 01/30/07 05:56 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

a buddy of mine went and purchased a kit from a local headshop even though i told him he could do the same for a fraction of the price...
anyway, the kit was a bag with pre-sterilized grain and it was tied off at a corner and in the corner was a spore swab (making inoculation very easy) but instead of casing the substrate after it was colonized the directions said to thouroughly mix the colonized substrate with the provided "kalonite"? (i dont know if i spelled that right) when he told me about this i thought it sounded kind of weird but just yesterday i saw the results and i have to say i was extremely suprized ive never had a yield like that in 2 years! so my question is this... what the hell is "kalonite"? has anyone heard of this? and whats with the mixing instead of casing has anyone tried anything like that? it just sounds crazy to me...but i saw it and it works pretty well. if any one knows about this "kalonite" i would like to know where i can find it...ive tried googling it but cant find anythind except some shit about acrylics or something? i am probably spelling it wrong all i know is he said kah-lo-nite with a k.

Kaolinite (chinese clay)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaolin

component of porcelin, dodechahedral mineral structure.

probably great in soil for ammonia and nitrate holding, and slow mineral dispersing

it's Kowanite

and I would guess that it was bought in Seattle or the surrounding area.


the info they give on it...

We drive a 200 mile round trip to pick up the compost from a location we feel has the best raw product with feed amendments that we like to see in the compost. We hand pick the compost we pick up. We compost the raw cow manure in an air induction composter and then we pasteurize it. The compost is bagged hot and allowed to cool in storage. Most compost we sell is less than 30 days old.
