Mushroom Compost
    #1161638 - 12/22/02 07:51 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I have a question for the elders.... I live not too far from a mushroom (edible) farming community. I read in the paper that they have bulk mushroom compost for sale much cheaper than I found on the net. If I got that would it work? and if so, would I have to do any additional preparation? Any info you could give would be much appreciated.

Well it depends if the compost is spent or not.  Usually if it is advertised as mushroom compost it means that it is speant compost that was already used to grow mushrooms off  of, and if that's the case, then its no good for your shrooms but great for your plants in the garden. :grin:

i've seen at my local home depot that there is a bag that says "mushroom soil" or mushroom compost or something. would this be used as a casing layer, or what? or not used at all?

did my post insult you? was i being a smart ass?! well, i don't apologize. i can't help it if you are too sensative.

i was just saying that that would be my luck, i find something that says "mushroom compost" and it can't be used. that's all i was saying smarty pants.
