So I have been growing microdoses for my coder brother and his friends for a few months now, and want to get into edible mushrooms, and I want to use the materials we can't sell from work in mushroom grows to explore new market avenues.
Currently the waste of our mealworm farm is about a ton of frass(insectpoop) a week, and we can't sell it, because there still is no EU rules for using it to fertilize human food.
About a 20L of sheddings a week, which from my research is about 18%chitin and 9%chitosan, both things our lovely shroomies are made of.
About 50kg of bone dry hollowed out potatoes, basically just skins.
I definitely want to add frass to both my grain and substrate in varying amounts because poop = fertilizer. And I read somewhere oysters like nitrogen, which sound like a perfect match since its tested at 3-1-1 NPK. I don't know about the chitin though. Do you guys think the mycelium will use it as is/at all, or does the shrooms prefer to make their own? I guess the potatoes can be pulverized and used for agar.
I am going to be using my shoebox TEK from the cubes, oats-> coir/verm, no liner, and transplanting the ready colony to a small martha I am assembling @ next payslip. Just like how the astro way's setup.
Any obvious pitfalls or forgettings? Any suggestions or ideas? Wanna try? free+shipping, we are literally filling a barn with this stuff.
Experiments will commence next week if Amazon is fast.
