stellarblue:

Some shrooms (like azures) like wood. Others
(like cubes and trops) like shit. You've got
to give each species what it can use.

Anybody else know?

if you use cowshit it depends if its from the field from wild grasses and herbs or from from a farm mixed with straw....anyway you should let it compost a while in black plastic-bags until the ph dropped to between 7 and 8 and then pasteurize it for an hour at 160?F....works great for all cubies...and the look more natural...

BiO.

B.I.O.:

I have access to horse shit. I see the
horses eating grass all day. I don't know
what they feed them, but I just pick up
straight shit off the grass - any straw
that's in it has already gone through the
horses' digestive tracts. Is this good shit?

So to compost it you just put it in black
plastic bags until the ph drops to between
7 and 8? How long does that take? Does it
take less time if you keep it warm (like in
an attic, which can get 130 or 140 degrees F
during the day)?

B.I.O.:

As for my original question: are you saying
that if animals eat certain things then old
shit is better, and if they eat other
things, then new shit is better?

Let's say horses eat grass and whatever the
farmer feeds them - should I just use new
shit and only age it enough to compost it as
you described?

Stellar, I have to call bullshit. There are differences in the composition, and more importantly, the structure, of different cellulose-based materials. I for one wouldn't try to grow Ecuadorians on a log, nor would I put TC's on wood chips.

i had asked a ? about dung once. only got one good response. the idea was to get the dryied out kinda brittle patties. (from cows) then let it soak in warm water and then i think it was put the sludge into a pillow case and let it dry. and chuck some cakes in there ~~~~~B.I.O.~~~~~
if you have any more info write a tek. why is it that the shroom originates in dung yet their is no tek for it.

Yes using old try dung is best. Just take the dung and let it soak overnight drain of extra water the next day. Then squeeze out remainder of water until there is only a couple drops coming out. Then you can either pasturize or inoculate the dung.
