The only point of a casing layer is moisture -- it should be NON-nutritious, unlike wood chips.

Wood chips work great for wood loving species of mushroom such as shitake. Unfortunately, cubensis does not like wood much.

What you talkin' 'bout, Wilis? Chemically treated wood is typically green (and isn't nice, so do stay away from it). What kind of 'wood' chips you are seeing generally depends on where in the country you are and are generally bark chips or dust (thus the color). Up here in the Northwest, it's usually Douglas Fir bark, Western Hemlock bark (the tree, not the stuff a Socrates drank) or a mixture of the two. It's aparently also a good place to look for P. azurescens and P cyanesans this time of year (around here, at least).

'Forest products' or 'forest byproducts' are a fairly large industry around here, since composted bark dust is a common ingredient in soilless mixes used by our very large nursery industry. You're in Miami, some I'm going to guess that it's probably pine bark, since there are large loblolly pine plantations to your north. It isn't likely to be usefull to you for growing P. cubensis and yor climate rules out growing P. azurescens or P. cyanescens out doors.


Sorry Morrowind, but saying that those chips are likely to be chemically treated unreasonably raises everyone's level of paranoia for in MHO little reason.

I second that. I've worked in the landscape business for years, and have never heard of chemically treated wood chips. Although, many landscapers do put nasty chemicals down along with them to retard weed growth(Casoron, treflan, monobor chloride).
