Default Re: Clay Substrate Rot?

It would seem this situation is totally preventable by using the kitty litter and mixing it up until fairly stiff in consistency---not fully saturated, so that air pockets may become trapped when mixing by hand---turning the clay much like you would bread dough to trap air inside. In this case, firing the clay would be fairly unnecessary with this method, I think...
Granted, it could stand to be amended with good fillers, but I've had no problem with stink this way.
