Re: I have undertaken the greatest challenge

I don't subscribe to OG, it was too much vegetable for an ornamentalist,
like me.  However, I did read an article similar to what you describe
somewhere along the line.  And I recall that yes, chicken was the strongest,
which also made it more likely to burn.  I don't recall if they tested
cricket manure, but that's something I often use for my bulbs.  If I can
find something at home later I'll let you know.
