first bulk substrate
    #886772 - 09/16/02 10:07 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys, just wondering what a good first bulk substrate would be.  I've grown off of cakes for the first two times and really wasnt happy with the results.  I have been reading alot of posts and I think I am going to use Wheat Straw and the 50/50+ casing mix.  Is this a good place to start.  Just looking for some info.  Thanks in advance. :grin:

I found pasteurized cow dung be less prone to contamination than wheat straw, but this may be just my observation.

how does a mixture of dung and wheat straw work and how much of each would I add to one another?

Straw is deffinatelly more prone to contamination Anno.
Personally I haven`t experienced any problems with straw but I have been told it`s more prone.
I personally make a mixture 50/50 is normally a good ratio.
I don`t really know if more or less straw is better so 50/50 works for me.
If you`ve never done a casing you should maybe do one casing first just to fimiliarise yourself with the idea.

Bulk is easy but you do need some experience with casings to succeed.
Then again You might not :wink:
