An Alternative to Bulk Substrates
    #3032052 - 08/21/04 11:55 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone ever tried to use wood chips rather than straw for a growth medium? Was thinking about trying it, but maybe there is problems with moisture levels, nutrients, pH, etc? Figured I'd run it by you guys, someone has probably tried it. I would use straw but it is a little hard to find around here, plus you don't have to chop wood chips!

Yes, woodchips are great for wood loving species.

I've heard of it done with cubies, supposedly it makes the trip have a bit of a different character.

Do a Shroomery search for stove pellets, they are already packed and in pellet form for easy spawning.

Thank folks, maybe I'll try some azurs, I always like a good challenge, even when I fail miserably! I just did a quick search but to no avail...anyone know a good, trustworthy vendor in Canada?

"Not a Shroomery sponsor" is in Canada. The guy who runs the site is active on the ADM newsgroup, but is not a shroomery sponsor so only use him as a last resort. I've never heard complaints about him though.

The moderators may remove that link since he isn't a sponsor, but I hope they'll keep it since I've clearly noted that he isn't a sponsor and should only be used as a last resort.

Thanks man....helpful, my friens has actually referred to this guy for "help" before, great help but too bad he isn't a sponsor :frown:  He doesn't seem to have azurs though, any other ideas?

Yes Cubies can grow on wood but you may have trouble keeping the green mould off
Cubes can eat cellulose but im not sure about lignin, the other bit in wood.

The B+ has been reputed to do well on wood.

i would guess that if B+ works then all cubes grow on wood... no?

maybe, maybe not. It's been a while since I've seen the B+'s on wood, or heard mention of them.

It may have been partially decomposed wood.

Well i beleive you age the wood first because fresh wood has anti fungal enzymes and such.

Cubies do great on stove wood pellets.

B+ on alder smoke chips. Low yeilds compared to poo/straw. Possibly higher potency? not completely sure but suspect so. 5g of this flush would launch you though.May try B+ on wood/poo this winter and see if I like it.I have come to prefer some wood in my substrates. I soak chips in 3% h2o2 and add to bulk substrates to replace vermiculite for looseness and colonization speed.
