i hadn't heard of this stuff, so i did a little research .
it took vary little, to find that the co. Amycel is a supplier of commercial mushroom spawn, and probably connected to, if not owned by Monterey Mushrooms, Inc.
so, i don't doubt that it is a good additive for making compost .
the question is would they sell you less then a ton .

Ralphster has something on his site like that.
I've wondered it it's any good
But I also look at it as if it ain't broke don't fix it.
I've been waiting 4 someone to post about it but that hasn't happened yet.

I'll received from a friend, 1lbs of Spawn mate 2 SE by the end of the week. He never tried it and he told me it was a bit expensive.

It look like this stuff is unknown by psilocybe mushrooms cultivators, so I will experiment with it and I 'll report back my findings.

I will add some in grain substrate , brf cakes and compost.

peace

It's good stuff. My foaf bought 1 bag of the ProMycel 600. It did not make all that big a differance. Maybe a few %. Not really enough to notice.

If ya have a good bulk substrate of dung/ straw, compost or any good combo, ya don't need it to get multiple flushes &  gross weight. Commercial mushfarms use it, when they have a high volume - low nute compost, so - it helps them out.

There is no spawnmate in nature & they grow big & fine in the wild. Best to mimic nature, as close as possible.

It is more about having a high nute substrate, at least 3 inches deep (4 or 5 inches is better), a pH balanced casing mix & optimal colonization & grow enviro.

One bag is all my foaf ever bought & when it was gone, he did not buy another.

You can also look up the patent. It is made primaily of rape (canola) seed.

6T (aka Mycota) :wink:

So in general it doesn't do anything but waste money if ur already using good compost?
