Bulk Substrate Ingredient Question
    #11266955 - 10/17/09 07:29 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

Hi all I was wondering if anyone could help me sort something out...

I have the following materials at my immediate disposal and was wondering whether a combination of one or another could be used to mix in with my colonized BRF cakes for fruiting.

-Finely milled peat
-Vermiculite
-Perlite
-Coconut coir (big chunks unfortunately)
-Brown rice flour
-Cacao nibs
-Sphagnum Moss (large pieces)

Thanks for your help!

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

I'm guessing your referring to the finely ground coconut coir.  The stuff I have is little bricks that are very brittle and seem to have the fibers intact.

gypsum is for fixing the PH
coffee grounds (free from starbucks) is also good to add.
