Commercial Mushroom Compost
    #1556386 - 05/17/03 03:03 PM (21 years, 1 month ago)

Does anyone know of any services that sell ready to use mushroom compost? I've tried web searches and local garden supply stores, but I'm only able to find spent mushroom compost.

I dont think the feds would monitor who buys compost, its easy enough to make yourself....

All sorts of mycologists and related websites sell ready to use mushroom compost....6T sells it actually, if im not mistaken.

Well, here's an interesting site about composting: http://www.prairiemushrooms.com/tour/

I know ive seen bags of mushroom compost on mycology websites for sale, but right now any search i do seems to turn up empty. It is available, i know that.
6Tango sells it doesnt he?

But your right, you cant buy it in a gardening store or whatever...

Doesn't seem to difficult to find really. Search a little harder. Mushroom People and High Mountain Compost both sell compost. Neither place mentions it having been used to grow mushrooms prior to being packaged and sold. Other non-magic mushroom related sites sell it as well. To think that the feds are watching the sale of "mushroom compost" is beyond paranoid once you consider they make no effort at all to control the sale of "mushroom compost" precursors: wheat straw and manure.

Rumor has it that 6T does indeed sell some kick-butt compost, however ordering info is missing from his web site. I _think_ this is his site, correct me if I'm wrong... Mycota Pro

note: HMC's server doesn't seem to be responding at the moment, but I know I've pulled it up recently.

See! I knew High Mountain Compost...but the site wasnt working. Gah! I went through the shroomery vendors and couldnt find any that had it, but half the sites were down anyways.
Anyways, thank you wahoo (i dig your avatar by the way)
Id like to know wether the compost being monitored is urban myth or fact!

Thanks for the help everyone. I tried High Mountain Compost, but their site seems to be dead at the moment.

Regarding there being regulations on commercial mushroom compost, I think this may be a rumor of paranoia.

Has anyone ever had to give personal info when buying a water pipe? Other than signing a waiver and proof of age, I doubt ther has been much issue involved.

If the feds really kept that close an eye on illegal mushroom cultivation, it would be concentrated on the spore trade, not the growing supply trade. Spores and supplies are legal. Let's hope that never changes.

It's ok to be cautious. Just don't be stupid and get caught.

It appears High Mountain Compost's new, more spartan site is up now. As I recall it used to have some pictures of rainbows and other stuff, now its pretty much a no-nonsense order form and brief description. According to the site, the compost is sold at $3.50 a pound in 5lb and 10lb bags. Price includes shipping and compost is shipped pre-pasteurized in filter-patch bags, which is insanely convenient, I would think. I recently pasteurized a pound of oat, wheat, and barley straw mix and it stunk up my apartment for 3 days, I can only imagine what it would be like to pasteurize poo in my small-ass apartment. Payments by cash or money order only. There ya go.

I, personally, have never purchased compost. Is $3.50/lb a little pricey? Considering a 10lb bag of compost would be $35 and you can get a 10lb bag of rye from Lana for less than half that price (12.95 + shipping, ok, probably a few bucks more than half after shipping), that makes the compost seem a little high in price. Is compost that much better than casing straight rye? I'm willing to get a 5lb bag and find out myself.

Yeah, that is a bit expensve, but some are willing to pay for the convenience. I'm willing to pay for convenience, but not that much. The shipping for that much weight would cancel any cost of convenience for me.

I'll check out the site you mentioned too. Thanks so much.

i've read alot of good stuff about both MycotaPro and Highmountain Compost, a few mods and advanced growers have used these with good results and i was wondering whinch brand you guys prefer.

my boss at work has access to fresh cow and horse poo but he doesn't want to prepare it so he thinks these products would be sweet.

any replies would be appericated.
