I guess it could work as a casing? To protect against frost :shrug:

And there you go. Casing materials and bulk substrates have opposite properties.
Anything that can be used for one is not ideal for the other.

Consider the three words: "composted pine bark".
What do you see there that makes you think you can grow mushrooms on it?
Compost, right?

It's pretty much potting mix. It has nutrients. It just seemed like a reasonable thing..
As you would definaly know, I have no knowledge on growing, that's why I'm here

Use your pine bark compost. It should work just fine if you mix it with fresh pine bark or other wood chips. Not sure how well it would perform on its own. Poorly at best, I am afraid. I am attempting an outdoor grow of Psilocybe weraroa on pine bark chips this year. Gonna spawn to the bed in about 2-4 weeks.

^^^ fresh wood ships is where it's at. Though I have not tried the bark and cannot say for certain.

But growing mushrooms on composted pine bark sounds about like feeding monkeys composted banana peels. Close but not right.

The compost is mainly very small chips/shreads.
I also have large pine chips

I thought pine chips had anti fungal chemicals in it,
And it had to be white and resign-less to allow mushrooms to grow on it :shrug:

My advice to anyone in this situation is to follow established teks until you are good at it, and only then try new ideas.
Just seems more effective than running out flailing at everything around you.

Pine isn't suitable(*). Get oak, alder, birch. Something like that.

(*) for most species. Some will eat it.
