Balanced pH: Gypsum effectively regulates the pH of your growing substrate, ensuring it falls within the ideal range of 6 to 7 for optimal mushroom growth.

Enhanced Moisture Retention: Gypsum increases the water-holding capacity of the substrate, preventing it from becoming excessively dry or overly saturated, which can hinder mushroom development.

Stimulated Mycelium Growth: Gypsum contains vital calcium, a nutrient essential for mycelium growth, the vegetative part of the mushroom responsible for nutrient absorption. The addition of gypsum fosters robust mycelium growth.

Augmented Mushroom Yield: Research has shown that incorporating gypsum in the substrate can increase mushroom yields by up to 50%. This is due to the stabilizing effects of gypsum, resulting in larger, more robust mushrooms.

To summarize, gypsum is an indispensable tool in mushroom cultivation, widely utilized by growers to enhance both the quality and quantity of their mushroom harvests.
