Gypsum is a two-nutrient fertilizer. It provides your bulk substrate with sulphur and calcium ions, whereas limestone is used for buffering acidity (pH value regulation).
Not trying to lecture or anything, I just see many teks talking about these additives, but very few actually explaining what they do.

The only thing possibly worth adding I've read, is some liquid coffee in the water you use, which may allow quicker colonization.




so what about adding liquid coffee to WBS jars or casings? got a few WBS fully colonized, they're getting cased with coir/verm today, coffee grounds were added to the last casing, so just curious on liquid coffee
