Ready-made compost vs. home-made substrate?
    #4695263 - 09/22/05 03:10 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Does it make a difference as far as mushroom potency goes whether you used bought compost or your own mixed substrate when growing? I know that the better vegetables are the ones grown in rich soil, and the people from 'High Mountain Compost', for example, promise that theirs has all the nutrients dung loving mushrooms need. And if I were to get it, how long does it take for the compost to dry up - enough time for the mushrooms to pin?

Thank you.

You have some major reading to do. And I would start in the bulk growing section. If you follow directions it won't dry up. I would go to a farm and get some horse poo and paseurize it yourself. Or if you insist on getting pre pasteurized stuff or cant get poo where you are use tenn stud from the sponsors section they sell dry and pasteurized poo. HMC is not only not a sponsor but also sell their stuff for more than its worth IMO.
