I recently purchased a bag of Aspen particles sold as animal bedding. Does anyone have any experience using this as a substrate? I am planning to soak the particles in molasses enriched water for 24 hours and then sterilizing in the PC for an hour @ 15psi. Any help/input would be appreciated.
That's the stuff exactly. Have you had any experience using this as a substrate for shiitake, reishi or garden giant (king stropharia)? I understand that I need to enrich the material with some sort of bran. Most likely, I will use wheat bran. Thanks for the advice. G
Go to a mill right now. Pick up a truckload of some fresh aspen sawdust and chips(ten bucks max). Make a stamets production block and then grow shiitake, ling chi, oyster, maitake, naimko, lions mane etc.
