Nah. The mycelium becomes one organism feeding on the entire substrate.
Yeah I know but I was thinking of a (future) substrate of coir/pea straw the pea straw would bring nitrogen which the coir lacks. So the sub would be coir and straw. Not sure what the requirements are for cubes, but they must require at least some nitrogen.
Also, for some other species like Pleurotus eryngii, that can really suck the substrate dry of both water and everything else...

Yeah I know the grain has quite a lot of nitrogen... I was probably just thinking too much lol.

Oats (and wheat I think) are generally 17% protein. And proteins are (average) 16% nitrogen. All by weight. so 2.72% N by weight.
