Can I just powder up bran flakes or the equivalent and add to my wood sub along with lime or gypsum?

You got to shop around to feed stores for best prices like 40 to 45 cents a lb. I've not had best result with lime pasturation of high nuke subs I've had to sterile the whole bags before hand so contam rate is less. Equally you should anyway for the slow myc like shiitake , reshi which I love to grow with bran. Also its about bang for money. For reshi bag 5 to 7 % bran is great with a spawn rate of 1 % is profit just waiting to happen but for osyters you need up to 20% bran to get those deep colors custors but can be half bran 10% and 10% cracked corn.

I also recordment soybean meal at 5% mixed into edibles for quick colonized times

      Greetings n salutations all! I’m not familiar with all the places in which you can create a topic, nor am I sure if I’m in the right spot now 2 do so. As some of you might know from previous post n millions of questions, I’m very new to the whole Mycology scene. Thankx 2 the help of some of the more experienced members here, I’ve successfully completed my 1st flush on 2 variety of cubes, GT n Ecuador. I’m having sooooo much fun n learning so many things, I truly am glad to have found this site. Now, many may not agree with me, but my thirst or quest for knowledge has me all over the shroom world n ready to take on my next challenge. With that being said, I’m patiently waiting for qt jars of rbs n 1/2 pint jars of brf to colonize with the Pan cyan var. Jamaica. While that is underway, my curiosity has led me to the wonders of agar! Although I have zero experience with agar, I’m very eager to test the waters n see what can be accomplished. Am I moving too fast too soon? I feel as if certain steps in Mycology I have down 2 a science, due to it seeming to be fool proof in nature, ONLY if certain measures are taken. Like, I take the whole sterile process very seriously n I feel as long as you practice sterile teks, your more than 50% to the finish line. So, I’ll be receiving all the supplies that I think I’ll be needing to successful conquer agar tek 2 moro. While I’m still reading up on the recipes n different teks, I’m totally intrigued by what some members here has accomplished with agar n can’t wait to chew their ears off about it!

      I placed an order with soap two weeks ago and last week they sent me a tacking number and said it was shipped I waited two days for checking and all I get is pre tracking and nothing else. Has any one else had this happen? To me if you say you shipped then 10 days is enough time to reach me.  Am I getting shammed? Source of spore's oops
