Abstract

Growth of herbaceous and woody perennials in spent mushroom substrate (SMS) composted by aerated and static methods was described. In commercial greenhouse production, the most important attributes were appearance, plant size, flowering characteristics and quality. The recommended mix proportions for Hosta based on the experiment was expected to be 25% and 50% mixes of either aerated or static composted SMS.
