Better Substrate
    #4452018 - 07/25/05 08:19 PM (12 years, 29 days ago)

Hello all! Great site here, everyone is very helpful!

I'm growing for the second time and had great success the first time using cakes. I'm going to do cakes again and if they work, I'll move onto something a little more advanced. My question is about boosting the substrate. I was told to use 25% bran - 25% brf - 50% verm as opposed to 50% brf - 50% verm. Any advice? Thanks.

want a better substrate.. use WBS or rye. BRF just blows IMO. i got nothing but pathetic malnourished shrooms from BRF, i immediately spawned my BRF cakes to some WBS and some RYE and have had an incredible change in the health of my shrooms.

wheat bran is widely used as a supplement in substrates by commercial growers.
but your recipe is off.
try 1/2g. brown algae per jar to super charge PF cakes. :smirk:
