The poo is called Wonderblend it was 3.89 for 40lbs at Earl May garden center.

The fruit is a B+ from my old school grow. I was really amazed by this I was in hospital for a while and when I got back everything was dried out and dead except my spawn jars and this jar was setting on the fridge with pins all over the top of it under the lid! Life will find a way!

Its .5-.5-.5
Its also got a nice little story about how the widder woman goes around her organic farm and lovingly collects these gifts from her noble cows. Hell these Texans dont dare fail or it will break the widders heart!

Did you add anything to the compost? Is it sandy? Did you leach or bake it before use to get rid of Ammonia?

Day 10 and I have pins. Looks like a pretty good pinset. Maybe not totally even but not a rim runner either. Only been two days since I put it in the fruiting chamber. Texans rule!

The other pics are my straw nugs. They are the ones I decided not to do a grow log on. I really love these Texans. They are by far my fav strain to date. But I want to try something different. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

I think we need to make a good distinction here.

Fresh horse poo, or fresh cow poo, is not the same as stuff composted down. Nor, do I believe it to be the same as other "compost" which is not made from those manures. These are different things in various ways.

By the looks of the bag Frankie has, it seems to be manure from a cow, composted down. (Composted Manure is what is says on the bag with a pic of a cow)

Ok, but you did add coir which is fairly nutritious.
I know we are making a big to do about the compost and that is because various people have had inconsistent resutls when using store bought compost.

Those straw nugs look nice.

I think I'll have to try out some composted manure from my area. I have never tried store bought manure but feel as many brands as we can try out the better to show results.

Dooby, you cut your store bought manure with peat, right? Do you think that made a difference for the better?

Dial8, you used a fescue hay and verm to cut your store bought manure, right?

I think maybe what we add to the store bought manure will add to success rate?

Just thinking :D

Oh definitely, freaky. Additions must be made to most store bought compost. I added verm for fluffiness and water retention. I'm not sure what kind of grass the straw/hay was but it must not be very nutritious although the fruit from that grow have gotten a bit bigger than I thought they would and the second flush looks like it might come around nicely.

Glad to hear it Dial8!

Frankie added 2 cups of coir to his bagged compost.
So, really adding verm, coir, or peat seem good materials to use with the store bought compost.

Thats great info for me to know if I try bagged store bought manure compost :)

I did say that they are coming around nicely but they are not up to par. IMO straw is the absolute best sub. It's very clean and easy to handle and produces monsters.

Dial8, have you ever used field manure? Not store bought?

I find I prefer field manure over straw, only because I can get more flushes on average out of the manure.

Though straw is superior in ease of preperation, clean picking, and maintaining the log during flushes.
