Peanut Shells???
    #1569791 - 05/22/03 05:55 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

OK, so I'm sitting here reading posts and eating boiled peanuts and I got this idea. How well would ground peanut shells do in a casing, compost mix, or a substrate?

I did a search and nothing came up, so I came here. Ideas, please.

I tried that once. No noticable difference in yield or potency.

The only noticable benefit was that the mycelium thrived in the spaces created by the coarsly ground shells.

How did you use them?

My experiment was to use them as a nutritive replacement to vermiculite.

MIxed two cups of brown rice flower to three cups of course ground peanut shells. Three cups of water were added and allowed to soak 8-10 hours.

This was enough to fill 12 half pint jars with half inch spacing at the top. They were then topped with dry crushed peanut shells and PC'd.

My finding was that they were a unsatisfactory replacement to vermiculite, but likely added nutrients not present in vermiculite. Not enough to produce a noticable difference in yield or potency.

Other nut shells I've tried were:
Walnuts.
Pecans.
Pistachio.

The density of these shells requires an extended soaking period, but all produced similar results.
