MycoMedia® Select Hardwood Chips
These fresh alder chips, roughly 7/8 inches in length, are ideal for the bed culture of many mushroom species, including The Garden Giant Mushroom Patch™ (Stropharia rugoso-annulata) and all the wood-loving species described in Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms by Paul Stamets. We recommend composing a habitat wherein these chips represent 25% of the total mass. Hardwood sawdust should comprise the remainder (but not cedar, redwood, pines, eucalyptus or other aromatic woods). Sold by volume: each box is 2/3 cubic feet, weighing approximately 10 pounds, depending on moisture content.
