Greetings fellow mushroom enthusiasts,

What is the best CMC (cow manure compost) to use for my bulk grow?

I called my local grow shops and they both carry the same brand of CMC: Bu's Blend Biodynamic Compost: Organic and GMO-Free Soil Amendment.

Ingredients: Organic dairy cow manure, straw, wood chips, and biodynamic concentrations of yarrow, chamomile, valerian, stinging nettle, dandelion and oak bark. 

Is this good to go? Should I look for a different brand? What do you use?

Any that doesn't contain a fungicide.

I use Black Cow from Lowe's or Home Depot.

I’ve only ever done coir substrates....it’s cheap and forgiving..I’ve heard any manure compost is better yields though I have some experimenting to do... working my way up to it

Compost is pretty much compost. Just as @MagicalCriminal said none with fungicides. Compost is organic by nature. Get what you’re comfortable with. If you want to pay a bunch for a bag with words on it, go for it. You’ll have the same exact results as if you got free compost which is still organic. Do what works for you.

It is just compost that at some time was manure. It is not manure anymore. It’s just low nutrient dirt once it has been composted, for lack of a better term. Much better than coir, but it is good to add coir for its water retaining properties. Saves expensive vermiculite.

      I've got mine fruiting next to my GTs hopefully they come just as beautiful!! How long did it take you to see pins on the albino? I've had mine in fruiting conditions for 3 days got some hyphal knots going but no pins yet! Good job on yours! You are now the object of my envy haha

      Hmmm... that makes sense. Wishful thinking I guess lol

      No. By breeding homozygous penis envy x homozygous penis envy would result in 100% homozygous penis envy. By breeding homozygous penis envy x  anything else would result in 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% anything else, as long as anything else was dominant. If it was homozygous co-dominant or homozygous recessive then it would be 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% heterozygous anything else. You would not see the mutation again until you produce more homozygous penis envy. Breeding them back to each other to strengthen it is not a real thing in genetics.

      See? I was thinking the same thing. If you could somehow breed or grow the genetics back to each other to where they both have it then take a baby from them wouldnt it no longer be recessive in the offspring? It should by logic strengthen it and cause it to become common. Then couldn't you take that gene and make it stronger until it becomes dominant?

      Any homozygous mutation is still a mutation. I’m not sure how to answer your second question.
