I'm wondering if the processed food waste (PFW) output of an electric composter, like this one, could be used to grow (oyster) mushrooms on?
The PFW is supposedly sterile, so the idea is to lightly hydrate the PFW, inoculate with mycelium, and follow the steps of indoor mushroom growing. What I am wondering about is:
- Will the medium be too acidic or basic?
- Will the medium contain too high concentrations of nitrogen or phosphorus?
- Is a combination of PFW and other cellulose material best?
- Should certain foods (ex: high sodium foods) be avoided in the PFW?
