compost question
    #2019787 - 10/18/03 04:19 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Sorry about this double post, but noone in the regular forum had an answer.

Is compost that is comprised of sifted cow manure, leaves and bark acceptable to use for shroomie growing? I was considering mixing this in about a 1:1 ratio with straw, mixing it up REALLY good, then pasteurizing. Would this type of compost work?

If you bought it at a store, don't bother, just use the straw.

The cow shit is always a good thing but, I dont think the bark would help much.  You could mix it with straw, say 2 or 3 parts compost to 10 parts straw  who knows.  try it and see how it works. :wink:

Actually, sounds like it would be great to me. Composts often have a variety of components. Everybody knows how well dung brothers used to work, they used wood shavings and cow dung as their starting base.

But, they also added a precisely formulated regimen of nutrients. So, I'd recomdend supplementing the compost via

a. high spawn rates of colonized grain (easiest, cheapest)
b. use spawn mate (little more complicated, more expensive)
