Hello, I search of informations with the feed of the muschroom mychorize. I have bought a soil with mychorize integrated on and i don't know what he eat. I have watered my soil with of water with coffe ground and coffe bark and i have mixed her with ash. They contains of silica. Can i feed my muschroom mychorize with of silica?
Its a muschroom wich communicated with the roots of the others plants unless the brassicaceae. Someone know if the mychorize eat the silica? Growing a plant is obligatory for duplicated this muschroom? The final objectiv is to did a seedling soil for the seedling of difficult seeds. I have did a mix with clay,sand,ash, cofee ground, cofee barck, soil (N=6 P=7 K=8) with mychorize and a fertilizer oligo elements.I watered the mix with the cofee water. For did my test, i put the mix in a pot with one lentil seed and i see if she germinate and she grow well. The lentil seed is good for did a test of soil?
I have don't measured the ph but the ash increase the PH and i don't know if the mychorize required an low PH for grow and id i can equilibrate the PH with the cofee.
this is a complicated subject. different plants can have different fungi associated with them and on the root systems. there may also be more than one kind with different interdependencies. i know nothing of what they require for food other than the plants sometimes give off various compounds to encourage them to be around. the fungi act as a further transport network for some nutrients. as to silicates, sorry, i'm not an expert so i can't answer that question. keep reading/researching/testing things out.
For resolved the problem of the compaticity i have put of potting soil above the seed and the mix under, when i watering the potting soil penetreted the mix soil and upgrade the texture. The next time, i will try to put a mix with of potting soil and of sand above my seed.The important is to have a texture not compact after a drought of the mix soil. In normal time, the root seed product an acid for grow in a compact soil but for a sensitive seed its may so much perturbate thr germination.
with our garden soils here they are usually a lot of clay content which means very hard when they dry out. i try to not let that happen completely during dry spells, especially for any vegetable gardens.

both sand and organic materials help, but it takes a lot of effort for me to bring in any more materials so i'm mostly trying to improve things by growing in place and burying all garden debris and encouraging worm life to do some drainage channels for me. it takes time but it helps and the soils do improve. i also add worms/worm castings/worm compost to the gardens where i'm planting my heaviest feeders - which happens in the spring before planting.
i do have fireplace ashes to use in the gardens but i don't always have them available. same for organic materials to use as much or amendments. we have a lot of gardens, not all of them can be amended each year.

I would,inhibited the effect anti-germinativ of the coffe ground while for,me he has a lot of qualitys. 2,30% of N 0,16% of P 0,73% of K He contain of silica for growing muschroom. The chlorogeniq acid could inhibated the germination and the grow of the plants.
Ok i have an idea for have a best germination with the coffe ground! I will did a solution of C6H12O6, glucosis with H2O water on my coffe ground.I may stimulated the cellular growing and feed more easily my mychorizes muschrooms. I have mixed the cofee ground with of granule manure.
if you are trying to encourage specific fungi to grow that you are innoculating spores adding manures may defeat that purpose as the manures can contain many other fungi. i'm not really sure what you are doing here.
in general though the encouragement of fungi in soil is just to get some organic material mixed in there and then whatever fungi are around will likely be able to take advantage of that and start working on it. i've done things like taken shredded white paper which has very little strange stuff in it and mixed that with our subsoil mostly clay soil and by the end of the season when i dig it up i can find where it is being digested by fungi. shredded white paper is about as anti-life as you can get IMO as it is bleached. still the fungi will break that cellulose down and start using it as an energy source.
