Need suggestions on which edible will grow
    #2776144 - 06/08/04 11:31 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hi everyone, I've been lurking about a bit and i decided to register today to see if i could get this question answered.

So, theres this big municipal compost heap near me, and they give out the compost free.

its all lawn debris, mostly fallen branches that the town had to pick off peoples lawns, scrub oak, cypress, georgia pine, some others are the common trees around here.

so my question is, what kind of mushrooms would be able to grow on this stuff?

I'm not all that interested in psilocybes, I'm thinking more commercially, edibles or medicinals.

So... any ideas?

Thanks in advance, and i'd also like to say that this place is a great source of info, one of the best sites i've found.

Lawn debris is not useful for any of the aforementioned species, unfortunately. Lepista nuda should grow on well-decomposed material.

I think you'd be better off composting the stuff and adding it to your vegetable gardens.

If it's well composted then there are many species that could be grown on it: Stropharia rugosoannulata, Coprinus comatus, Agaricus sp., ...

He said primarily fallen branches, which I interpreted as wood chips. Perhaps thats not what it is?

ya branch refers too wood in most cases?
I would say oysters super aggressive and will grow on just about anything get some of the liquid culture from sporeworks.com will make about 5 gallons using 1 cc in each jar spawn do some spawn on grain for oysters I use half gallon jars I think wood chips and grass clippings would be fine hella to use as bulk
if you have accsess to straw that would be the best IMHO if you plan to do indoor grows
oysters are the easyest shroom to grow(even more so than cubies) if you get a fruiting culture and are craz fast colonizers

thanks for all the advice.
I'm going over there tomorrow with a truck. I'm going to try to get a big load from the middle of the pile where its composted real nicely, and see what i can do with that.

well i got a bunch of the stuff and sterilized some, pasteurized some, and left some alone... wedges of lions mane and shiitake did poorly... i'm guessing its the presence of pine... thats all i have for cultures, but i've been reading about how cultures from dried specimens might be awakened... so i bought a mixed bag of edibles, now i'm waiting for some agar.... with any luck, i'll be able to get cultures from the mixed bag of edibles...
