A couple of questions...
    #2614999 - 04/29/04 06:05 AM (14 years, 24 days ago)

I went to 'Kinoko no Mori' ('The Mushroom Forest') today and got some substrate material from outside the Shiitake farm nearby...

What I have is a bag of woodchips (which is used for shiitake substrate) and 4 bags of nice compost.

The compost is from their rubbish heap.  It's about 80% spent shiitake substrate and 20% mushroom material(the fruit which weren't 'pretty' enough for the stores...)

Can I use this compost for growing mushrooms?  ('compost loving' mushrooms)  It is very rich and dark and there were some worms visible...

Also, how can I 'fill out' sawdust substrate?  I only have 1 bag of this and want to know if I can supplement it with cardboard or similar.  I can not find the compressed wood pellets (used for BBQ's and pet bedding) here in Japan.

Question #3...  Can I sterilise substrate directly in the PC without putting in bags or jars?  (I am thinking of PCing to kill peroxide destroying enzymes and then treating with h2o2 and loading into bags - as per Dr Wayne's technique...)

I know that's a lot of questions for 1 post...  Thanks for all your help folks :smile:
