Re: Using birdseed?

Well millet is the kind of bird seed I've usually seen used for substrate. I'm currently using a combination of white millet seeds, brown rice flower, and vermiculite for my substrate just as an experiment. The substrate is colonizing pretty well right now and I'm pretty sure that the millet in the substrate will make it easier to break up so I can case it with soil.

I usually use grain spawn. I just recently bought some bird seed. I was wanting to experiment with it. I was wondering could you use bird seed instead of brown rice flour with the PF cake method? If so, do you need to use more?

Of course you can. Once the mycelium has established throughout the cake, it will hold it all together. You should add some vermiculite so that water is able to be retained in the cake. Water is the most important ingredient in all cakes. The PF method is fool proof.

What if you used a mixture of small seeds and large seeds? They'd both be used as food by the mycelium network, but the small seeds would act in the same capacity as the rice flower and the large seeds would allow airflow and capture moisture like the vermiculite... ?
Just a thought. Anyone try this?
