Interested in this myself as I may take the plunge soon. Compost or worm castings can be purchased at any garden store.

Any home depot or any store with a garden center will have maunre compost. Should be around 4 bucks a bag.

Just spend $25 on some High Mountain Compost, the stuff is loved by mycellium, pre-pasturized, pre-moisturized. You do nothing except mix with spawn wait 5 days, case--wait. Yields skyrocket over cakes, and straight casing. Poo GOOD.

What is it in High Mountain Compost that is loved by mushrooms? Meaning, what are the things mushrooms need in their substrate in order to thrive or grow to their maximum potential?

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Call me weird but no way in hell would I pay 25 bucks for a few pounds of someone else's composted lawn clippings...

Damn, mostly horse shit, straw, wood chips, and lignus. Yup, the "shit" is pretty expensive, but it is a hole lot more than lawn clippings, actually I don't think there are any grass clippings in it. The reason compost can be expensive is because it takes over a month to do correctly, and most people don't want to turn the pile every day and have a big pile of rotting material around the house (ruins the stealth of the grow) You can find plenty of recipes for making your own compost on this site. If you collect all your own shit and what not, you can make it for damn near free. But again you will need to invest a months time of tending to your compost pile every day or so. For less than I spend in ten minutes at the bar I can exponentially increase my yields and have basically no extra work (just mix and go). [Actually I only spent ~$80 at the bar this friday, still feeling the effects:(]
