On where to find mushroom friendly wood chips in the area of florida? If it matters, i wanted to grow amanitas, portobellos, and possibly the bioluminescent honey mushroom, yet have been greatly discourged because i just dont know where to look or what exactly i should look for.

You're basically talking aout hardwood chips I believe. I'm not familiar with the use of wood chips in port compost, or with the bioluminescent honey mushroom, OR the substrate for aminitas,but maybe I can help.
I found hardwood sawdust from a local mill, a few phone calls to lumber yards, or a local manufacturer of hardwoor floor paneling. All these may be able to get you hardwood chips and or sawdust by the truckload, in my area this costs $120 delivered. (dump truck - 20 cubic yards) Also the feed place that sells straw also sells both hardwood chips and sawdust (separately bagged in 35 lb. bags) for 5 bucks a bag. As horse bedding. This is SW FL, but I'm sure you can fid it all over the state. I think softwoods can be found as gerbil bedding and the like, but that's a lot smaller scale, unless you call the company for a pallet or two. Hope that helps,
Jeremy Davis

lol, i dont need a dump truck. the feed store has hardwood chips as horse bedding? i never looked but maybe i should ask about it. do you think they would know what type of wood it was? damn, that sounds so suspicious though.

i thought edibles and the like only grew off of chips, not sawdust. i dont see how one could use sawdust without it turning to mush anyways.

Well, sawdust is either used as a spawn media. Or mixed into chips to give the media a very wide range of textures, also it helps keep the moisture content more even throughout the substrate. The feed store is great. I think they MAY know the type of wood that's used. Suspicious? Just tell them you're growing mushrooms with the chips, and different wood species are better than others, if you want them to, they can make a call and find out, you're a customer. Light and Love,
Jeremy
