worm castings?
    #1777712 - 08/04/03 10:49 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

i've read that organic nitrogen is beneficial to fungal growth...worm castings are a good source of organic nitrogen...anybody have any recipes for casings that use worm castings??

I have spawned some EQ grain on worm castings before and cased with coco fibers...the mycelium loved the castings and ripped thru it...and they loved the coco fiber casing as well...all in all the shrooms did very well and were very potent compared to the shrooms that were grown on straw/poo...this could have been any circumstance, but I did find it interesting that the castings might have effected potency.

the mycelium actually spawned onto the worm castings itself?? i was thinking of just using it in the casing layer...

AFOAF uses worm castings as a bulk substrate, too. He uses castings and straw together(50/50) though. Both castings and straw colonize extremely fast. He found that castings by itself packed down too much, but did work fairly well. He uses a coco/verm casing mix. I wouldn't recommend using castings as the casing material unless mixed with something else.
