I found this stuff.....
    #460547 - 11/16/01 04:18 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

In a local nursery; it's called Mushroom composting material. I did a double take when I saw it, and then I read the bag for ingredients. Here's what was inside...

" A blend of cow manure, chicken manure, composted wheat, composted straw, nitrogen, limestone, gypsum, and phosphorus for an optimal growth medium for most culinary mushrooms".

So I figured that it'll work with cubensis, but what should I do.......

1. Use this in place of BRF/verm an innoculate jars filled with this stuff? Will this work at all?

OR

2. Continue using the PF tek and use this mushroom compost for casings?
(Seems to be a suitable casing material)

Ive tried casings but I couldn't quite get it right, maybe I was phucking up something.....

Anyone with any help is appreciated, I'd like to see if larger mushrooms are possible with this mixture...
THanks in advance
Mazamaze

Use it for casing and let us know how it goes.

yeah that prolly wil be your best bet. mix it with the crumbled cakes. put a layer of m compost on the bottom, then a layer of myc from cakes, then cover again and fill the crevices with teh compost and case with the norm peat/verm or whatever. that should work nicely.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

Make some rye spawn and inoculate your stuff with it.
Case with coco coir casing or 50/50+ casing.

Mushroom compost is material that has been used to grow mushrooms. Some say it makes good casing material. I tried casing grain with mushroom compost from Colorado and the spawn mycelium would not even migrate into the compost material. It just sat there and slowly died. After three months I threw the whole thing out without a single shroom

weird, no growth? maybe it was too dry? or maybe its a scam to rip us all off?
