This is a real nice topic and interesting ;) it's nice to see people doing what they love .. i like peacefrogs name too.  Also, i like cats & bats name, it reminds me of this house i live in. Arathu is super cool but i don't know what the name means maybe i should look at cyberspace.. google whatever. I don't have helpful imput on this topic but the names just stood out i guess. take care and i think i will just read and bathe i dont need to write anything today or tomorrow, unless i have a contributing comment that is helpful. :) reading is good :) for me..probably for everyone else too that i do.. just observe :)   (sorry if i crashed the topic :( i was just noticing something i guess)... :) :)

Any update on these?


Going well for the most part. So far the horse manure compost is kicking ass. The organic compost is a close second. The ones WITHOUT straw are producing the most abundant fruit. And sadly the black Kow jars and the plain straw one are doing nothing! Just primordia that have set for couple of weeks. It appears straw might not be that great or needed in the substrate (at least for this clone anyway).

I inoculated 4 more jars with a combo of the horse manure and organic compost last week to test the 2 best subs so far. They are getting close to full colonization, so we will see.

I will document with pics when all is complete.

Thanks for the update. I really need to source some hpoo. Disappointing to hear the black kow is doing poorly, as I have a big bag of it.

i used an organic humus and manure soil and coir, i believe the ratio was 50/50.

glad you started to play with these guys again. i've been debating on giving these guys another go.

 

 

What kind of manure soil?

Horse Manure Compost:

And for the stragglers that finally decided to fruit but poorly:

Plain Straw:

The field composted horse manure has proven in this trial to be a great substrate for these guys so far. After growing out the combined Horse Manure/Orgainc Compost jars, I will be moving to a bigger grow. Stay tuned for a mono or shoe box grow!

Good vibes all.
