I only ever add a calcium source to coir for grows, not really that concerned with its nutritional value insomuch as I like raising the pH above 7 so that molds won't germinate. Welcome aboard!

7 pound trays in grow tent, I’m growing morels and want to try different substrates. Also, is there such a thing as too much fresh air while fruiting? Thank-you

They have got them growing without a symbiotic tree. Whether it is a different strain, I don't know.

Most of the time home cultivation tends to be a nutritive sugar slurry that is dumped out in the yard on wood chip paths and such.
