pine needles ?
    #1932551 - 09/19/03 03:25 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

i was wondering if you could use pine needles as a casing or substrate?
has anyone?
if you can, what kind of shrooms would be ideal?
would they be any good for cyans?

Personally I think that pine needles are to acidic to put in substrate, but that is just a guess.

Yes the oils in pine needles takes a long time to break down and also have a low pH, so just dont use them unless they have been composting for a couple years.

there is a term for why nothing grows on the floor of a forest underneath pines, i forget what it is...

I doubt that pine needles contain enough nutrients to be used as a substrate.
