https://www.amazon.c...ed oak shavings

 

Thinking ahead trying to find resources for Medicinal/ Edible grow.

Was wondering if something like this maybe mixed with coco would be a viable sub.

 

Thanks

Oh I wanted to grow Lions Mane and Reishi. I'm thinking the shavings may not be composted enough? Gonna check out nursery and feed store arms see what is out there. I'm trying to get "clean" media I've brought contaminated soil in my grow room and it took me a while to get rid of the fungus gnats. Anyway I'm horribly obsessed with my new hobby. Thank you for any advice.

go with wood fuel pellets you can find at most big box hardware and farm stores at this time of year

supplement it with bran or soy bean hulls (soy hulls is the masters mix which is the newest trend in cultivation substrates on a commercial level.  may be harder to find uless you have a feed mill store around you)

Thanks
