WHite rice whole seeds as substrate...
    #2839392 - 06/29/04 12:32 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey.. I remember someone saying that white rice sucks as a substrate.... and why would that be? I am asking because my white rice cakes colonize by far the fastest and are a lot easier to set up then the other stuff.... so where is the problem with white rice? any potency differences maybe?

Do you add any other nutrients to the white rice?

White rice is bleached and then has vitamins and stuff added back to it and it is not as nutritious as it was before. Brown rice is a better choice and better than that is other grains like rye, corn or even bird seed.

Personally i wouldnt want to use genetically modified rices to grow any type of mushroom on. It seems to me that mother nature has had millions of years to perfect what has been growing in the wild. But that is really just my opinion. And yes i have seen alot of store bought white rices that are bleached. It is a pretty commong thing.
