searching the patents, I find that many oil seeds can be used as "spawn mate" without the nasty things like formaldehyde etc. Flax seed was specifically mentioned in at least one or two of the patents I read. If you search, post the link here, I don't have time right now. Basically, flax seed is simply added to a bulk substrate at spawning.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

You do not use that much of it.
It is only an additive.

I know this is an old thread, but I want to share my experiences with flax anyway. Anyone who is reading through this and thinks flax seed is the new, next best thing, you might want to take it slow. I added 1.5-hour-pressure-cooked flaxseed at 10% dry weight to my compost at spawning, and the mycelium completely failed to run strongly through the compost (only weakly getting through the casing before I gave up). A post mortem of the bed revealed no visible contaminants, very little mycelium growth, and no smell, other than earth-like. In fact the whole heap turned more soil-like during the three weeks I gave it to colonize, and I think I could have easily grown anything I'd have liked in it. I considered that maybe there was something wrong with the strain itself--as it was not from a known viable clone--but judging how it ripped through the grain in 5-7 days, I don't think so. In fact it colonized grain as fast as I have ever seen. What went wrong?

I think it had something to do with the flax "gooing" the compost together (despite the gypsum that supposedly prevents this). If you doubt flax's ability to goo stuff, try boiling some sometime. Let me give you a hint of what it's like: boiling flaxseed is a way to generate an egg substitute in vegan dishes. In fact if you ever wondered where they got all that goo in Ghost Busters II, I think it was a huge pot of boiling flaxseed.

I would recommend to not SAC with flaxseed unless you have a lot of straw in the mix to avoid gelling together the whole mix, sealing it off. Start at a very low rate (say 2%) and slowly increase up to 7% over several trials until you get the hang of it. As for myself, I'm just going to forget it. I get the sort of yields they are claiming above anyway without the flax and with just lots of spawn. I guess curiosity just got the best of me for a bit.
