Hey guys.

So I'm doing my third grow and I've been pretty successful so far. I was wondering if anyone has tried some sort of Miracle Grow or other sort of nutrients for mushrooms. I've been looking around online but I haven't been able to find anything. Thanks

Mushrooms are decomposers. They dont use nutrients like plants do.  By following any of the tek making your substrate, you have made a miracle grow mix for mushrooms.

Carbons and starch-sugars, I believe? You can find the info out there, not nutes as you know them though. But as stated the sub teks are already providing all of that. You could go ham and fine tune your sub to milligrams using research info if you wanted perfection but it's completely not worth it. The other variables, rh, fae, temp, evap, will play the largest role. Perfecting your sub and double subbing and such aid in how many flushes you get, and won't promise big clusters of monster mush like miracle gro makes tomato plants explode. The common sub teks here will give multiple flushes, and unless youre in this hobby for more than the fruit, the extra time double subbing (using a nutrient rich casing, basically using sub as casing) takes and maximizing flushes per jars probably isn't worth it. Fine tune your environment if you're looking to for something to adjust to produce more. Hope my minirant was related to things you were looking for.... Lol

Interesting, I started thinking about this diatomaceous earth I have here today, I wonder if the nutrients would do anything for speed or size of growth when mixed in a sub or even just in casing....

I have thought of adding a little amylase to the grain soaking water and holding 145 for an hour. This will convert starches to simple sugars.  Experiments for the future when I understand mycology WHY better.  I have also thought of trying malted grain. If you are interested in trying it now, amylase enzyme can be found in brew shops and online. Personally I want to try and mimic natural conditions first then experiment.
