Probably noone has used this for MJ, so you would be entering new territory. It will be interesting to see how it works out, though.

i bought 7 tons of it last year... half in my garden,and 1/2 in the watermelon patch. its great stuff, but i wouldnt plant anything in it as it is. just mix it in. its pretty hot for MJ.

50/50 mushroom-mulch and peat-moss with perlite added and alot of lime would make easy and fairly cheap planting soil... just hit it with bloom ferts a little in july or august depending on ur strain

Corto is correct. it is basic organic material with negligible n p k (0.7% - 0.3% - 0.3%)

This gardener has a negative review on mushroom compost.

But it couldn't hurt...

MYCORRHIZA-BENEFICIAL FUNGI
Forms natural symbiotic associations with the roots of most plants.. These long term associations / partnerships have specific beneficial exchanges. The external mycelium of MYCORRHIZA acts as an extended or extra root system. This effectively INCREASES the uptake of water and nutrients.

On the mushroom compost topic. I can get the stuff dirt cheap, I would also like to know if it is a good additive for my soil.
