Only have very fresh hpoo.. what to do?
    #6520127 - 02/01/07 05:08 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I live in a big city and my closest sources of hpoo only offer it fresh. It is only a day or two old.

I have another source that has old seasoned hpoo. It is in a big pile but it smells like soil and it doesn't have a fiber-like texture. The texture is almost just like soil. If I were to hydrate this, most of it would dissolve into the water.. so I am assuming this is not what I need.

I can leach the fresh stuff myself. I know I shouldn't use it right away because it won't have the dead microbes and other benefits of aged poo, so how much time would be enough to leave it out to season enough for my use (cubies)?

It also has plenty of woodshavings in it. I do try to remove most of them, but it's a huge hassle. Are there any ill effects from keeping them in the hpoo?


--------------------

My first grow. Thanks all.

I am limited on time and can't allow it to age more than a few days. Is that worth it or should I just use it right after leaching for 24-48 hours (or whenever the ammonia/shit smell is gone) and pasteurizing it?

Fresh horse manure is useless to you, whether you leach it or not. You want three to six month old manure that is field aged. The nuggets will be hard and almost grey, not green like when fresh. Find a place where you can pick it out of the pasteure, so you can cherry pick the manure that looks well aged.

I was leaching it in my bathtub but was stuck out of town and came back 2-3 days later to foul smelling apartment. The hpoo smells absolutely rancid. I believe it fermented. I have placed it all outside on tarp and will wait till it turns grey.

What can I do to promote/speed up reproduction of firefang on the hpoo? Should it be placed somewhere dark? should it be a little moist? etc..
