So, after reading agar's post about mycelium and what not I decided to read into composting a little bit. Sounds interesting, and I plan on taking up some composting in spring when our temperatures rise again here.
Anyway, I dug up this little bit of information:
Quote: COMPOST AS TEA: Compost tea is made by combining equal parts of compost and water and letting it sit for a while. The liquid can help to provide a 'quick boost' to ailing houseplants or young seedlings and transplants (I recommend diluting it quite a bit for use on seedlings). Stu Campbell, in Let it Rot, says that the same compost can be used to make several batches of tea (2). When you're finished making compost tea, use the mucky dregs as a mulch in the garden or landscape.
Do you think making compost tea and dunking your substrate in it, rather than just a straight spring water dunk, could possibly be beneficial?
Is this a worthy experiment, all you "more experienced than me" growers?
I posted this in basic cult too, but it's not getting any replies. Hopefully you all have some input as to whether it's a stupid idea or a legitimate one.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.
I guess this tea has got a lot of nutes in them and that's why it would be beneficial for the mushrooms. But you would have to make sure that it is really sterilized cause also mold and bacteria like nutes ..
