Obtaining hardwood sawdust!!!?????
    #643933 - 05/24/02 08:51 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I've just spent the last bloody hour ringing up places trying to find hardwood sawdust! Noone has it and they don't know any other places that sell it. Can anyone help me out. Im from Oz.

Yeah, I agree that stuff can be hard to find. Where do you live? I live in IN and it is relatively hard to find in my location. I drool when I head up to northern MI because there are sawmills all over the place and piles of sawdust sitting around.

I finally found some, from a place that cuts raw lumber into pieces that are then later used by cabinet makers. Usually cabinet maker saw dust is TOO fine because of the all the sanding they do (they collect it all in the same barrels). But the stuff from the guy that cuts the raw lumber was just right. It took me a long time to find it and I was very happy. It was hardwood and just the right with some small, lots of medium, and some large pieces od wood. Yay!

So, I started making spawn with pluerotas, shitake, miatake, stropharia, corpinus and others in preparation for the spring. Well low and behold shit grew really slow on the stuff, even if it was supplements. So I did an experiment. I grew coprinus and pleurotas on that sawdust and also on aspen shavings (the kind you get for the bottom of the hamster cage). THe coprinus (I supplemented the coprinus mixture with wheat bran) and pleurotas tore through the aspen shaving like a motherfucker. The pleurotas grow on the other sawdust but mush more slowly and the fucking grain spawn from the coprinus would not even leap off. I still do not know what was wrong with the stuff, it may have been treated, it may just be very low in nutrients

What I am trying to say is yes, finding swadust can be bitch, and even when you do find it it might not be any good. Good Luck

aspen is hardwood. Aspen is also called cottonwood I believe.
