My other mushroom crisis-need compost?
    #1031492 - 11/07/02 07:18 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

My other crisis,

I hope some of you can help me with this. I have a sealed rye berry bag from a mushroom kit I ordered from Homestead, and it's somewhat cultivated. Here's the situation: I thought the rye bag was a dud because it just stopped growing and there is only a light dusting of white mycelium on it. So the nice people at the vendor I bought it from said they would send me another one. But in the meantime, since I've got this rye bag (that may be a dud, but might possibly have some mushroom potential) I figure what have I got to lose if I try to make it grow as an experiment. And that leads me to my question for you: Where can I get compost or manure or whatever it is that is sterile that I can plant these berries in? The kit I bought comes with a rye berry bag and a bag of compost (manure/whatever), but I don't what to open that up until I get the new rye berry bag.

In my browsing through Google newsgroups, I've come across CaptainMax at Sporelabs and he seems to be the only one I can find who sells sterile, usable compost. But, there is A LOT of flaming and badtalking going on about this CaptainMax person. But then I see his name here on your forum and he doesn't seem so bad. So I don't know who to trust.

Thank you in advance for going to the trouble of reading through this (and the other long rant). And tell me if this is the appropriate category to post in. For the love of god all I want is some fruit!!! I bought stuff from SporeWorks (as you can see in my previous post) as a backup in case this kit didn't go right, and NEITHER of them worked right ! ! ! Friggin crap this sucks ! ! ! !

Bye!

Cousin Fatty

Compost works great but it helps to have nice healthy mycellium. Yours doesn't sound too strong.

And I wouldn't read to much into the constant crap you'll find on adm. it's always filled with flamers.

I tried some www.sporelab.com compost, it worked great. Here's some Thai...

You don't need to waste your money on packaged compost. Are there no horses in your area?

If someone wants compost, they are certainly not wasting thier money by buying it. You obviously don't know how long or how much work it takes to make quality compost!

it's not presterile, but i've heard descent things about scott's 3 'n 1. if you can get horse dung i recomend it highly. i am thinking about doing a 3 'n 1 and cow dookie mix.
