Compost for growing?
    #4263348 - 06/06/05 01:59 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I just started an outdoor grow plot, I am using 1 part steer manure to 2 parts compost. The steer manure was previously combined with an aborted PF cake and had strong mycelial growth throughout, but wait! Is organic compost a proper growing medium for shrooms? I thought I had read somewhere that it is an excellent substrate, but now I'm not so sure. What's the deal? and if compost is no good, am I screwed? Should I just dig it up and start over with hay and manure?

Organic compost? Meaning lots of greans and such? High in nitrogen (grass clippings, green stuff) isnt good. I dont know how screwed you are or much more about compost then that. Try PMing Agar if you get no response here...he's got alot of compost knowledge.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
