Growing mushrooms on Coco Coir
One of the best substrates for growing mushrooms is coco coir. Coco coir can be used as a substrate for many different types of mushrooms. Coco coir is a natural fiber derived from coconut husks and is a waste product of coconut production. It is a common material and environmentally friendly substrate that is renewable and sustainable. Coco coir is also pH-balanced, rich in organic matter, and holds moisture well, all of which are important for mushroom growth.
Coco coir is an excellent substrate for indoor mushroom cultivation. It is easy to use and control due to its consistency. Our coco coir is already sterile and hydrated to field capacity. It does not need to be pasteurized. Simply add your grain spawn to the coco coir and you are ready to start growing mushrooms. Coco coir is the most low-maintenance substrate of all!
What is the best ratio of spawn to substrate?
The recommended ratio of grain spawn to substrate is 3:1. This means that for every 3 parts of substrate, you will need 1 part of spawn. You can always use more spawn if you want! There is no perfectly proper amount.
What is the ideal temperature for incubating mycelium?
The ideal temperature for incubating mycelium is 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit. The mycelium does not need heat.
What is the recipe for this Bulk Substrate?
The mix we use consists mainly of coco coir with a small amount of vermiculite to increase water holding capacity. The substrate is hydrated to field capacity for ideal moisture content.
Why shouldn't I grow mushrooms on Manure?
Growing mushrooms on something like cow manure is not recommended because it can harbor harmful bacteria and pathogens that can contaminate your mushroom crop.
How long will it take for the mycelium to colonize the substrate?
It usually takes 7-14 days for the mycelium to colonize the substrate. However, this time frame can vary depending on the species of mushroom, the size of the container, and the amount of spawn used.
