5kg Hardwood Sawdust


5kg Hardwood Sawdust/Shavings.

Ideal as a bulk substrate for larger scale or commercial growing of mushrooms such as shiitake.

This may be pure oak or it may contain several different hardwoods, and the exact contents may vary from sack to sack. Normally, there is a fair bit of oak and mahogany, but also some light-colored hardwoods. There may be traces of softwood - but at much too low a concentration to adversely affect mushroom growth.

The sawdust is from virgin timber without treatments or additives.

We have tested this with oyster mushrooms and shiitake and it works well. There is a high percentage of shavings, so this is a light airy sawdust, which is well-suited to rapid colonisation. For shiitake and blue/grey oysters, we see full colonisation in around 3-4weeks.

Also useful for food-smoking.
