Application: choice edible
Characteristics: Large fruitbodies, smooth, yellowish-gray- brown, darker towards center.
Temperature Range: Mid: 50-65 °F (10-18 °C) fruiting temperature
Recommended Substrate: alder, poplar or other hardwood sawdust/chips; can case with peat moss.
Composted Substrates: There are two types of compost, those derived from straw bedding with horse manure and synthetic composts, which are simply composts lacking horse manure as a main ingredient, and are typically derived from wheat, oat, rice, and sorghum straws.
Secondary and tertiary decomposers fulfill the ecological niche of breaking down primarily cellulose and lignin. Many of the herbaceous substrates in use must be decomposed prior to the proliferation of these species. Micro-organisms are encouraged to grow on these substrates to break down readily available hemicelluloses, amino acids and soluble sugars. Nature goes to work to break down these compounds with the addition of heat, water, and oxygen. The appropriate C:N ratio must be achieved for the target species to be cultivated. Cultivation procedures are as follows; mixing and chopping the substrate materials, phase I composting, phase II composting, spawning, casing, pinning, and harvesting. This is a very critical process that must be performed exactly to the target species grown, and experienced composters should be consulted to maximize cultivation success.
Recommended species: Agaricus bisporus, Agaricus blazei, Calvatea gigantea, Coprinus comatus, Lepista nuda, Stropharia rugoso-annulata.
