Have you heard of mushroom substrate or mushroom soil? A lot of people haven't and don't even realize how it's made or what it's used for. Mushroom compost (its more popular name) is made from the leftover materials used and synergized in the growing of edible mushrooms. You may not be aware of the complex process of growing these mushrooms in optimal conditions but this is one incredible process!
Farmers basically add a bunch of organic materials together, blended into small pieces, and creates the actual soil the mushrooms grow in, to create a soil that mushrooms derive all their nutrients from to give them the best chance of creating exactly what the farmer (and we) wants.
The process requires the farmers to maintain a good eye on the growth and other factors of the mushroom, but the result are those delicious mushrooms we put on our salad. You didn't think they tasted that good naturally (meaning without human intervention) did you?
The beauty of this process is that once the mushrooms are harvested, this compost of a sort becomes a useful product in maintaining grass, flowers and many other types of organic plant life. This compost can replenish tired and nutrient drained soils and bring incredible growth to your garden, lawn, and even herb gardens.
Although many people use this material, many don't even know it exists or how it can help them. If you were one of those people before reading this, then you're in luck because you now know about a powerful secret of farmers, lawn care specialists and more.
There are actually a lot of mushroom compost suppliers to choose from and depending on how well each one blends, how well used, and the health of their crops, you will get various different degrees of potency.
The best mushroom composite is one that's thoroughly used up and contains mostly new compost material (nutrients plant life thrives on - like we do - on vitamins). Manufacturers and distributors have various ways of bringing you your mushroom compost as well.
Some will deliver to your home if you purchase a certain amount minimal, while others are available in stores. Due to the fragile nature of this type of organic material, you may not be able to purchase it from just anywhere, it has to be handled correctly and maintained fresh (in a compost bin or similar device to keep it working). Compost generally gets more potent the longer you nurture it, but there is a point of diminishing returns.
