I have been looking around online but found that this isn't used as much as I would think in mushroom cultivation, though I can find some people who are onto the same idea. Most of the topics I found are outdated.
Do some of you have experience on growing manure loving species without using 'fresh/aged" manure - but with pellets? Or maybe you can help me out with a recipe that would be a safe bet, so to say.
I figured out some recipe I can try out, but figured maybe some of you around here have some direct experience I can learn from. Would love to hear from you if you do.
My idea so far:
- hydrate pellets up to maximum of 30% water content.
- mix with hydrated vermiculite or coco coir in a ratio of 9:1
- sterilize/pasteurize substrate
- mix with spawn in or 3:1 ratio or so..
A specific question I have to add to this:
If the manure pellets are up to 30%, wouldn't that mean I will also have to use the same water content for the hydrated verm/coco? My thinking is that if I were to mix in verm with a higher content it will ruin the consistency of the 30% hydrated manure pellets. Is my thinking correct here?
