    Using Mushroom Compost

    The process of composting takes advantage of naturally-occurring microbes to accelerate the breakdown of organic wastes. It creates an ideal environment for microbes by providing appropriate moisture, temperature, and oxygen levels. Microbes grow and quickly digest the waste. The end product is humus, which is probably one of the best nutrients for all types of plants.

    Does mushroom compost really help to save water?

    Yes, it really helps you save on water by storing almost up to 70% of its own weight in water. It also improves transmission of water through the soil. The presence of compost soil remains cool even in warm weather. Additionally, it increases soil resistance to both wind and water erosion.
