i have recently recieved a suggestion of using recycled paper pellets (kitty litter) as a spawn medoium for innoc outdoor beds has anyone out there tried this method. my mate is gonna try it on Ps subaeriginosa (australiana) what do you reckon
There are several spawn and spawn based supplement patents. Some contain the actual formulas and limited test results. In addition, several of the patents discuss the maximum and minimum percentage of nitrogen necessary in spawn to promote health mycelium.
Many incorporate perilite or calcinated clay, i do beleive some make mention of paper. I've seen pet litters made from recycled paper that truely resemble clays. You may just be able to substitute paper for clay in the formula.
Likewise, there's soft sorbent bedding made from virgin pulp. It's make up isn't much different than that of cardboard, just that it's fluffly and fiberous. It's already rolled into small clumps and is relatively absorbent, chances are you could prepare a common liquid growth media (such as potatoe dextrose yeast or malt) and simply use this stuff to soak it up. Just don't make it too wet.
Rush wayne uses kitty litter in his peroxide spawn formulas. There have also been several folks in the OMC to post positive results with the media, without using peroxide, just treating it like normal spawn.
So, I'm sure you could make it work, if you use a good formula.
