Of course, you can reuse it. The only thing holding back your mycelium from producing more mushrooms is a lack of food, so you can feed it some more and it will produce more mushrooms. It has some caveats that need to be discussed. Mycelium can’t be recycled forever, because mycelium ages (just like us).
Does Mycelium Die After Fruiting?
As organic matter decomposes, mycelium undergoes thermogenesis. The Mycelium may be cooked if your fruiting room is running at the optimum temperature. Your mycelium will die if it is cooked.
What Can I Do With Left Over Mycelium?
Inoculate heavy! Use it! Inoculate heavy!…
The second thing you need to do is use it! Get more logs, straw, or materials to plant.
You can save it for later…
5) Use it!…
Give it away!…
The sixth step is to compost it.
Can I Reuse My Mushroom Substrate?
As well as substrate, it is possible to grow more mushrooms with it. In the case of spent shiitake blocks, you might be able to break them up, re-sterilize them and reuse the organic material to grow more shiitake.
Can You Reuse Mushroom Spawn?
To ensure that the mushroom block absorbs plenty of moisture, you simply need to submerge it in water for five hours. The Fungi Ally mushroom grow kit can be reused, so you can make more batches of mushrooms if you thought the first batch was good. Allow the block to rest for 2-3 weeks, then begin the process again.
Will Mycelium Keep Growing?
As soon as the compost is removed from the tunnel and filled into the growing room, mycelium growth begins. It continues until the compost is covered with casing soil when mycelium grows in compost in the growing room.
Can Mycelium Grow Forever?
The longevity of our species. An mycelium that can grow through the ground could persist indefinitely, and old mycelia are known to grow large.
Can You Damage Mycelium?
It is more likely for anager to damage mycelium by compacting or disturbing ground or leaf litter with their feet than by picking. It is possible to need to uproot the entire specimen before covering up the exposed mycelium to prevent it from drying out in these cases.
What Do You Do With The Substrate After Fruiting?
As soon as the substrate that has given the mushrooms their last appearance is removed, it is taken out of the plant. It is common for growers to throw it on a big pile and compost it, but some leave it in a plastic bag or container and stack it up (we do).
