What is gypsum, and why is it used in mushroom cultivation?
Gypsum is a mineral that contains calcium and sulfur. It is added to mushroom substrate to provide a source of calcium and adjust the pH level, creating optimal conditions for mycelium growth.
How does gypsum benefit mushroom growth?
Gypsum improves the structure of the substrate, enhancing water retention and drainage. It also provides essential minerals like calcium, which supports the development of strong cell walls in the growing mycelium.
How much gypsum should be added to the substrate?
The amount of gypsum depends on the specific substrate recipe and the type of mushrooms being cultivated. Generally, it's added at a rate of around 1-2% of the dry substrate weight.
Can I substitute gypsum with other calcium sources?
While gypsum is a common choice, other sources of calcium, such as calcium carbonate, can be used. However, gypsum is preferred for its additional benefit of adjusting pH.
Does gypsum impact the pH of the substrate?
Yes, gypsum is often used to help buffer substrate pH, making it more favorable for mushroom growth. It tends to lower pH levels if they are too high.
