Using vermiculite instead of straw, coffee grains etc
    #11306696 - 10/23/09 04:42 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

I am new to mushrooms and the site. I am wondering when my rye jars are all incubated and before I start fruiting. Can I use moist vermiculite to mix with it in the garbage bag instead of coffee grains, horse crap, straw etc?

no. Verm has no nutritional value. Read up on the teks for spawning to bulk before asking questions. All your answers lie in the search bar.

I assumed so, a post I read on here said to use vermiculite but I was going to go with coffee grains and straw.

I have read a post or two about someone trying to attempt this. You're better off using coir, manure, straw, coffee grounds, etc. I use manure myself.

Just coir alone works fine. you dont need to mix it with anything. Although I'm doing it with verm/coir
