A few practical tips on Phase I and Phase II substrate (compost), and the substrate preparation (composting) process, and formulating mushroom compost.

Spent mushroom substrate is the soil-like material remaining after a crop of mushrooms. Spent substrate is high in organic matter making it desirable for use as a soil amendment or soil conditioner.
