I've been using used Yerba Mate tea for years as an additive in subs for exotic species. It also works as a primary substrate when mixed with fine vermiculite. Never noticed any increase of potency or yield but it has a plus in the fact that I don't have to shred it. :wink:

I think black tea compared to green tea inhibits different bacteria and generally more bacteria. Have looked into this a bit, and a simple experiment done - by others - to strongly suggest this.

As a substrate.. well idk if by Tasmanian you mean a cube variety, but for cubes I don't think lignocelluloid green plant material is really all that optimal, however i think you could consider it a nutritional supplement to your substrate.

Grains are plant material but have a different composition than most of the plant. Green tea may be more like hay than straw. Straw is mostly fibers and low micronutrition while hay has more nitrogen and micronutrition - its kind of a spectrum from woody plant parts to green plant parts.

Again, if you meant cubensis: you could enrich certain substrates with these plant materials as cubes can apparently decay a bit of cellulose but not necessarily all that great, and the micronutrition should be a bonus.. but i wouldnt count on it as the bulk of your substrate tbh at least not if you expect decent yields.

If you meant a Taz variety of subaeruginosa then its probably a lot better. :laugh: (also better as substrate for it haha)
Pans are not my area.

I wouldn't worry about fungicides which would remain after you already made tea with your tea leaves. Various methods to protect against fungus should be gone when you buy it or wash out, i believe.

In a pasteurized straw tek so when you expose the straw to the air afterwards, i would not use green tea.. it would likely get mold because the tea is still sensitive to contaminants possibly especially wood-loving ones but idk. But chopped straw sterilized then why not.
