The missing lime may come into play for 2nd-and latter flushes as the mycelium feeds and breaks stuff down and begins offsets the ph making it more prone to contams. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not. But lime almost always helps from what I've seen. Tis winter though, air fairly clean, may luck out. :)

Those are NICE. Great rhizo character, it shows even in the distance shots! Man, those are going to explode...

Are you going to case at all?

So far they seem to be staying at a decent humidity level for me, so probably not.

Also, a prior batch which was done similarly and cased with verm showed few pins in the middle of the tubs and many on the edges. I never saw the creeper mycelium colonize through the casing layer at all either. (I've seen some strains agressively take over verm when cased this way, so it may just be Creepers or the type of them I'm working with.) Kinda odd since it eats through the compost something vicious. :headbang: :headbang::headbang:

So we see how these go with no casing this round.

It's also important to note that I've been misting the substrate directly on the top to aid it in keeping moist. This is in addition to just keeping the walls and lid bottom misted. So far, so good. :)


I've also noticed I put slightly more substrate mix in Tub B then in Tub A. You can sorta see the difference this made in the colonizing pics above. Tub A appears to have been quicker somewhat.

me too! I like the way you've done this and find myself thinking about things you could change and tweak.

Daily photo updates!

Actually.......... I never got compost right from the bag to colonize completely. I had to cut/fluff it with peat moss to give it more "fluff". :D

Day 12, here's a few assorted pics... Tub A and B high res and low res pics and some closeups of the pins forming taken from Tub A. You can see which pics are which by the names if you just leave the mouse over them for a sec or two.

Very nice doob! :cool:

Does the bagged manure you use come with humus added? Does it have peices of wood? If so do you remove this or just let it ride?

some in-depth details/pix on pasteurization would be great,
the new vaults here are a bit short on such info

I'll make a seperate thread about that soon.

No. And yes, there are some wood bits in it, you can see some in the pics if you look very closely. I do nothing to it. Well, actually, I think the sticks are more from the peat moss. The compost itself is pretty clean.
