Please have a look at my wood substrate
    #4682587 - 09/19/05 05:26 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)





That's a mix of hardwoods--oak, maple, some other stuff I'm not sure.  Anyway, so I got about 55 gallons volume of that stuff.  It's fairly stiff, I don't think it will mush up when I soak it.  Do I need to supplement with sawdust and/or woodchips? 

This is for reishi, btw. 

Thanks.  :laugh:

I wouldn't, only thing i'd supplement is nitrogen (non fat powdered milK), and perhaps some bran. pasturize it and see what happens.

That looks really nice! I doubt you need to add sawdust. Definitely bran, and some gypsum. I read a post on Mycotopia a while back where someone boiled their substrate for an hour. It seemed to work great!
Light and Love,

I got out ggmm for you. I see here you can supplement with 20% of these...

cornmeal
cottonseed meal or flour
oat bran, oat meal
grape pumice
rice bran
rye grain
soybean meal and or oil
spent grains from beer barley and wheat
vegetable oil
wheat grain, wheat bran
nutritional yeast


It says the reason you would want to add somethings like these is that the the bulk substrates like hardwood chips and saw dust are low in nitrogen. Supplementing your substrate will increase yeilds.

If you supplement you should increase steriliztion time from 2 hours at 15 psi to 4 hours at 15 psi.

If you are growing Reishi, don't do what these guys are saying. Follow the advice in GGMM: soak the chips in a solution of about 3 tablespoons (50ml) of molasses to 5 gallons of water for 3 to 4 days. Drain very well. Load the bags. Inject with the live culture you make. Worked great for me.
