Dunking straw cake?
    #794061 - 08/03/02 10:41 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Hey people, here's a quick question my kitty would like some outside opinions on:

My cat has this HUGE straw cake, like the size of a filter patch bag stuffed full, that is just finishing its first flush. He is wondering if he should try dunking the thing overnight, or if he should just leave it to continue flushing. The straw seems like it would re-absorb water extremely well, but he isn't sure about whether it will stay in one piece through the soaking.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

I did a quick 5 minute dunk with a compost cake with disasterous results (it got too wet).

I reccommend injecting 1000 cc's of straw water (10 injections of 10) in various places.

You could also try slicing the cake (like I suggested before) and casing in 50/50 coir/verm in addition to the straw water injection.

Did you see the flush I'm getting in my roaster pan?

That's what I was afraid of - the straw might soak up SO much water that it would waterlog itself. I'm probably going to inject straw water, though. Do you think I ought to boil it before injection, or is it just fine straight out of the fridge?

I looked for your roasting pan flush, but didn't see it. Can you post a link?

Thanks for the reply, TM!

Tell kitty not to waste time boiling as long as he's kept the straw water sealed air-tight in the fridge it'll be fine.

Here's the link to my roaster pan:
