I have seen horses poo...umm, go with the horse poo. Great things will come of this I see it...in the poo.

Hey, fred, are you using straw by chance with that poo-poo?

Thanx Fred , glad I did not have to explain,  ........"THE USE OF COMMON SENSE " to you  :smile:, we seem to be on the same level when it comes to a choice of what shit to use . I hope in some small way I guided you in the direction you already knew was best for you !

I am not experienced in mushie growing :smirk: , but have one a few awards for gardening , veggies . Mushies are not like plants in many ways , but they do get there nutrients from the soil and other substrates they are in contact with , they just do not rely on the sun to help convert it into usable energy . I am certain that they need and use diferent nutrients at different times during development  . Like plants "usually" like lots of nitrogen , when forming leaves and branches , then like the other various nutrients and minerals  when flowering , devloping fruits etc ............ some like acidic , some like alkaline , mushies seem to like netural range .

And yes the spores are not eaten and digested , thus making them able to germinate .......... we are growing mushrooms not nuts . I cant name one , but there are some grains and nuts(especially rainforest ) that need to go thru digestive tract in order to germinate , and to be spread to new areas also . Spores are designed to be spread in wind currents , land hopefully in favorable environment , germinate , acquire nutrients to develop mature mushie and spores , then release them starting process over again . :grin: :grin:

Personally I like the idea of growing in worm poop (worm castings ) that is my chosen substrate for bulk growing . I know many would disagree , but many also agree so thhhhhhhhhppppppppttttttttt (blows raspberry) to all you argumentitive types .  :tongue:
Outdoors I am going with Moes outdoor tech , and horse dung is easier for me to obtain . Besides I do not want my mushies to have mad cow diease, or anthrax .... ha ha only joking , but have thought about it . Hell I have even considered using bat guano , but most disagree with that , and I trust some who said they had no luck .
Knowing me though ....... I will try someday . Bat guano is hard to get quantity of , and costly from comercial comps.

No matter what your choice the only thing that seems to matter is the ph level , I have asked many what are optimum nutrient levels for mushies i.e. nitrogen , potash , etc and have been given no direct answers . Enough rambling ...........

This is real life not opinion ..........HERMIT CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR ROCK !

Sorry folks my evil ego is defensive today. :crazy:

Peace and for those who deserve it..............................
May the mushroom goddess bless all your endeavors ! :cool:

I like to leave the worm castings for the house plants, but others seem to like it.

Well Penguin of course I will not be using any of this info for other than entertainment purposes. However a friend is just beginning to grow and as yet has not tried the poo method at all. This friend of mine was thinking he would try the poo with straw and without, to experiment a little and find what works best for him. Of course now he has to maybe experiment with different poos just to satisfy his incessant curiousity. This friend remains humbly grateful for all the advice given in this thread. He will try to record the results (good and bad) of his various experiments and post them someplace where other amatuers and newbies might benefit. Thanks for your time. peace :cool:

Thanks Trip, I like to think I posess some common sense most of the time. While responding to ShroomHermit, I realized I talked myself into telling my friend to use horse poo, and experiment with others. I have a follow up question for you while we're here. Is there a good method you can recommend to allow someone to check the PH level of the poo? Some way readily available and fairly cheap. Or is the PH level fairly predictable and not in need of monitoring? I know I should search the faq's and archives, and I will, but I'm asking for the benefit of your experience. Thanks again.

Hey I just noticed I got a shroom. Woo-Hoo I'm somebody now!! :cool:

And thanks to Mycofile for directing me to the grow logs forum. I didn't even think to cruise around in there. Minus one common sense point for me. :frown:

All this debating is a little silly. As I have used both, extensively, I can vouch that cow/cattle manure and horse manure are both QUALITY bulk substrates. You can talk theory about number of stomachs, where shrooms are found in nature and if cows or horses really do sleep standing up or not, but it doesn't really matter. Use whichever you can get your hands on.

And just to clarify, when I say fad, I don't mean anything bad by it. Yes, the manure teks are here to stay. The reason I use the word fad is because "poo teks" have been here to stay for about 30 years. Their newfound popularity is a popmycology fad, not a groundbreaking advance in mycology.

And for anyone who's theory tells them that horse poo is drastically better than cow poo, this was grown on straight dung, cased with vermiculite:

Yield was about 3 oz per sq. ft. First flush.
Cow manure works just fine.

In RE: Checking ph .
I am not 100% sure , but I think nurseries sell little kits for testing soil samples and I believe it does ph levels in soil also . Cost ?????????? 15$ at most . :cool:

tripndicular:
just thought i would let you if you're looking for large quanities of bat guano try going to different smoke shops or nurseries which sell stuff for growing bud. As i remember i think its sold in five pound increments but im not really too sure on the price cause its was a while back when i bought some. good luck with your experiment when you try it.

I'm a crazy cave crawler. Bats are neat. Caves are amazing places. Nothing beats the feeling of exploring a virgin passage, a sacred place deep inside the earth where you know that no man has ever been before.

I've seen passages over a mile long with the walls, floor and ceiling completely permeated with mycelium. Makes the walls gisten and sparkle. Very cool.

I've also cloned a fungus that was found growing on pack-rat shit in a cave. Never grew it out again, just wanted a culture.

Just curious, what region are your cave crawlin buddies in?

These aren't my pictures, just some I had on hand. If anyone gets seriously interested in caves, check out caves.org.

gentlemen...
Mayhaps it's also strain related, but here's my 2 cents...
Been playin with eq's and koh... both loved cow, so  went to the garden shop and got a bag of composted horse manure. Tried to use grain spawn with the poo strait out of the bag... the fungus would stretch out and try to colonize, but it gave the same effect as when it spans over plastic and it never ate the shiest. I leached the poo and tried again, and it seemed to like it a little better, this time it was actually attaching to the crap and making a good effort at colonizing, but yeilds were still fairly poor. Now, I've called all the shops here in western washington and all carry horse, but none carry cow manure.... In the end, what I found works awesome is to twice steep the horse manure and be very generous with the water (use new water for each steep session duh), then take the end result and mix in coarse vermiculite to make a good, fluffy mix of about 70% poo and 30% vermiculite. Pasturize in oven bags, spawn with grain, follow the hints on this board for environmental controls... worked very very good fo me...
Sorry to rattle... :confused:
