kowanite?
    #5425688 - 03/21/06 04:57 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

So i was browsing old mushroom john's site. he keeps mentioning a substrate called kowanite. does anyone know anything about this. check out this "uncased" clump grown in a plastic bag!


Just looking for a little information on this!

It's probably some of the best mushroom compost available, but unfortunately, it's also expensive as hell. Horse manure is poor mans compost, and is what I'd recommend to those on a budget.

appreciated! I've taken a year long break from cultivation, so i'm trying to stay on top of my game and keep up with the new technology so to speak. I am now on a quest to find prices on this.

I was also told that it's a descendant of "Dung Brother's Compost" from years back, and just looking at the shrooms grown on the stuff, I can tell the recipe is identical. You can tell by the growth, an optimum compost like that produces elongated, almost mutant shrooms.

That was the baddest compost to hit this hobby, and I haven't seen anything close since. It's a shame the DB operation didn't make it.
