Our 2 kg pre-sterilised, ready-to-use Sawdust and Bran Substrate is ideal for mushroom cultivation. Designed specifically for Wood-loving mushrooms, this substrate is hydrated to field capacity, ensuring optimal moisture content for mushroom growth.
This substrate is made from 80% sawdust (from hardwood) and 20% bran. Sawdust is the primary component, supplemented by bran, which provides quick growth because of extra nitrogen. For species like Shiitake and Turkey Tail, a nutrition ratio higher than 20% is not recommended as they primarily thrive on wood and don’t respond well to excess nutrition. Thus, this Sawdust and Bran Mushroom Substrate is an excellent substrate for them. Any medicinal mushrooms are best grown slowly as they pack more medicinal benefits than a mushroom that has grown relatively quickly. (This statement may not be accurate for all medicinal mushrooms).
This substrate can be used for all wood-loving species. Go to Grain Spawn, and click on “Fruiting Temperature tab” for more information.
We use organic Wheat bran and Hardwood Sawdust along with Hardwood chips. When mycelium comes in contact with woodchips while growing, they become really Vigorous—resulting in thicker and faster colonisation.
Source and Quality of Sawdust
We source our Sawdust directly from Tasmania, and pellets are made from Australian hardwood.
