I was wondering what are the major nutrients needed for cubes. I understand the act of balancing PH, but are they N lovers or Calium etc...What orgaincs can be used here, bone meal, feather meal... Thanks

You are basically on the right track. they love nitrogen, calcium, carbohydrates, cotton seed. actually anno would be more suited to answer this question as he's done more research on this than most.

Calcium mostly, but you just don't want to go throwing tons of nutes in your casings/ cakes cuz it will just lead to contams.

Cubes like N, but not to much: Ratio should be about......

carbon / nitrogen ratio <17:1, nitrogen 2.6%, phosphorus 0.2-05%, potassium 1.5-2.5%, calcium 1.5-2.5%, available boron <2 ppm, available ammonium <10 ppm, soluble salts 3.0-5 OdS/m.

Phosphorus eh? Doesn't that stuff glow in the dark?

Wonder if Luminescent Panellus glows because it's high in phosphorus.
