Gypsum, a naturally occurring mineral composed of calcium sulfate, is a fantastic supplement for enhancing mushroom substrate. It is particularly effective for species that thrive in environments with a balanced pH and added calcium. Gypsum not only conditions the substrate by improving its texture and structure but also prevents clumping, ensuring even water distribution. By providing essential minerals, it fosters a conducive environment for robust mushroom growth.
pH Balance: Helps to maintain a neutral substrate pH, which is crucial for most mushroom species.
Calcium Enrichment: Offers a vital source of calcium, an essential element for the development of strong mushroom cell walls.
Substrate Conditioning: Improves soil structure, promoting better aeration and moisture retention in the substrate.
Clump Prevention: Reduces substrate clumping, allowing for more uniform mycelium growth and easier harvesting.
Versatile Use: Ideal for a wide range of mushrooms, including demanding varieties that require well-conditioned substrates.
Enhanced Fruiting: Supports improved mushroom fruiting body formation and overall yield.
