Oyster Shell Calcium
    #526426 - 01/20/02 10:40 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

There is a dietary supplement on the vitamin
shelf at Wal-Mart called "Spring Valley Natural
Oyster Shell Calcium". Says it's 50% calcium
and 50% Vitamin D. Do any of you chemist out
there think it could be bad for the mushrooms. I
couldn't find crushed oyster shell but I think I
might have found an alternative. As bad as I
hate to, I will list the ingredients. If anyone sees
a red flag, PLEASE, Let me know. Thanks!

Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate (from oyster
shell), Maltodextrin, Cellulose, Mineral Oil, Soy
Polysaccharide, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose,
Cholecalciferol, Polyethylene Glycol, Stearic Acid,
Magnesium Stearate, Crospovidone

To keep vitamins from molding or catching bacteria they usually put additives etc... so I am not sure that this would be a good idea.
You can try it but use it on a small amount of substrate so you do not ruin you labors.

find a feed mill in rural America. I just got 50 lbs of oyster shell, a 75 lb bag of cracked corn, and 50 lbs calcuim carbonate, at a small town feed mill for the same price as you'd probably paid for a few ounces...some of the finer things in life just cannot be had a Walmarts everywhere
