mushroom compost from garden center
    #1530826 - 05/08/03 03:04 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

is mushroom compost found at my dog's local garden center good as substrate? The bag doesn't specify whether it's fresh or spent.

Would spent compound be robbed entirely of nutrience? Is this kind of substrate preferable to poo?

dude, do a search. It's spent. No garden center is going to sell compost used to grow mushrooms. Think about it. If there were enough mushroom growers in your dog's local area to justify the 2 tons of compost they had out there, shrooms would be handed out for free at every street corner.

Can you use it? Yes. Will it work? Maybe, but probably poorly.

again, search

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

A couple things.
Compost is used as spawn not substrate.
Store bought mushroom compost is already spent making it useless for mushies. It will almost 100% grow you a nice hearty crop of green mold though :frown:
If your interested in mushroom compost that works i'd say check "high mountain" or make your own cause searching the local stores usually just ends up fruitless :wink:

I think compost can be used as substrate. Poo and straw are in the same category as compost (bulk substrate) and Moe sterilized it and used it as substrate (see soc-full-a-shit tek).The Compost that you are using might be dung based (mine is).

Compost is a bulk substrate.

You spawn compost with your grain.
