Cellulose Decomposers: Hardwood Sawdust:
Most popular species under cultivation are naturally wood inhabiting fungi. So, growing on sawdust is a logical choice. Sawdust is mixed with wheat bran (or another nitrogen source) at 5-15% and Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) (a buffering agent) at 2-3%, and filled into autoclavable bags. The bags are sterilized for a minimum of 1 hour at 121°C (15 psi when at sea level). Note sterilization exposure times vary depending on pressure and elevation. Finally, the substrate is cooled to at least 25°C (approx. 80°F) then, inoculated with grain or liquid spawn and incubated at appropriate temp for the species until colonization is complete.
Recommended species on softwood sawdust:
Armillaria mellea, Auricularia auricula-judae, Fomitopsis officianalis, F. pinicola, Ganoderma resinoceum, G. tsugae, Hericium abietis, Hypsizygous ulmarius, Laetiporus conifericola, Pleurotus pulmonarius, and Stropharia rugoso-annulata.
