I have used field manure as a minor ingredient with straw as the major but I have never used it by itself. Your grows testify to the quality of field manure...:)

Thought I would post a couple of pics that were taken tonight. This is day 12 from spawn.

The nugs are just a straw/WBS mixture that I put in half gall. soup containers.
But with the finely shredded straw and the high spawn/substrate ratio they are turning out nicely.

This is day 14 from spawning. Not as even as I thought at first but still not bad for a first shot. I think that Im going to add straw to the compost next time.

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


Absolutely. Helped the mycelium colonize it far better than without peat to "fluff" it.



I know we are making a big to do about the compost and that is because various people have had inconsistent results when using store bought compost.


Again, important to know what you compost is made of. You can compost down just about anything. I believe it was Dirty Jobs where they were taking the food waste from China Town in San Francisco and composting it down and then selling it to vineyard growing grapes then making wine. FOOD compost! Imagine what sorta stuff was in it from China town... LOL :amazed:


The compost I'm using is composted cow manure. As far as I know, there's nothing else really added to it. I think it's very important for us to understand that just cuz a bag says it's compost does not mean it's composted stuff from what we would like. Bag checking key. We want the "right kind" of compost. I dunno why that Blak Cow brand stuff isn't working so well, seems to be just cow manure. I've never used it though...

Frankies stuff looks very nice. Not sure if it's the coir that fed it and fluffed it or just fluffed it or good compost or what, but the results are very nice. ;)

Good job again Frankie. :teeth:

love those nugs,
nice trays too.
those tex are a bit short in stature,
i think you should go for a better strain
next time,
bet you could double yields using like SA or EQ

Better strain? :lol: BLASPHEMY!!!

tx usually make up for their short height with thick, dense stems. On average, I get more dry grams per flush from tx than I did with B+ and EQ. Can't compare them to SA, but I gotta say you just really hurt my feelings hip.

lol, jk.

Very nice Frankie! Gotta love those Tex!!!!!

And Hippies right, if you like working with manure, try a large fruiting strain. You'll laugh yourself silly :D

I hear ya reefer... I love the tex. I think those are perfect specimans Frankie.

Granted, some other strains will adapt better and get far larger on compost than on cakes whereas the tex will only get moderately larger if larger at all, but I see nothing at all wrong with those tex there. That's perfect and lovely! Some of the best tex I've seen done on compost. :)

I'm curious how many flushes come off of that. You can see there's still a lot of compost that that myc didn't even touch/get into eating/breaking down yet. ;) Could flush for a while if it stays contam free. :)

Dats the problem, everyone see's that, and thinks they're gonna grow these 5000lb SAs left and right, not good thinking. It's like seeing someone grow some great ass jalepenos and then be like, habenero's are better, you shoulda done those instead. I dunno, just see it as an odd comparison tex to b+ or something. I dunno what he's going for yeild, size, monster fruits, a lot of fruits, or what... but, I think Frankie took a strain he wanted to use/work with and did a nice job with it, esp on his compost mix.

(.. or a better comparison, growing nice buttons, then saying they should have done portobella's or something.. ) (had to use a mush reference. :D)

and I love my tex baby ;)

Heck yeah. That was an impressive job by, reverand, was it? Some strains just grow huge, some are just compact and nice like tex. I hear what you are saying though, depends what he's looking for.

Hey frankie, so looks like your poo casing and straw nugs turned out well. good job man! heres some pics of that tub about a week and a half later. FOAF is pleased! The biggest tex in the upper right hand corner of the box with them all lined up is about 6 inches long with a cap 2 inches in diameter. Hip, tex can get decent sized!
