espresso grinds?
    #1392012 - 03/19/03 04:11 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

i overheard at work that used espresso cakes can be used in gardening as a compost... i was wondering how successful it would be in mushroom cultivating. i'm open to any feedback, [image]http://[/image] [image]especially from those who have experimented with this as a substrate

they think they are high-temperature sinus effluvia on a silver platter but they are in actuality sub-zero mucus encrustation on a paper plate ~subgenius

dunno about using it as a substrate. As a casing I think coffee grounds hold moisture really well and are usually soggy.....if I remember correctly....but coco coir probably holds even more moisture per volume. Casing should have an airated structure but still retain moisture well.....I'm guessing coir would be superior.

This is kinda an advanced forum Q. Try it there if nothing interesting shows up here in a couple days.

good luck -MM
