Thanks for any info!
I honestly don't know the answer to that question. I'm going to use a white/soft wood this go around as the others were in a dark/hardwood last time.

Once I get some more corms going I'll be trying each every other time and see how they go.

All the videos I've watched and all the papers I've read, don't specify any type. They just say...sawdust. Or rice hulls.
