Great thinking, because the missing factor in growing is food for the fungi and bacteria. (And the insects too, to distract them from eating the plant.)

The only danger I can see is doing too much. Think of how much or little grass seeds, berries, etc. there are in a square yard of soil - and use that as a guide.

Feeding the fungi is not like feeding the plant - they're not that big.

Fungi need a calorie source - seeds, berries, fruits - and they need a carbon source - coco coir, hemp bedding, chopped straw. And they have a lot of work on their hands if you also use supersoil, so they have nutrients to break down.

Also, it is good to keep undecomposed organic matter near the top of the soil, so any heat is dissipated and doesn't hurt the roots. And so there is no anaerobic decomposition going on in your medium.

I dunno man i just grow in dirt. You ain't gotta reverse engineer dirt for your first grow.

In fact i tilled some shitty chalky clay plots this year and everything still looking fine. Grew too many tomatoes planted too many pine trees over the decades to believe anyone should be over thinking dirt.

Everything look good except the copper sulfate.
Probably added to keep the product mold free.

Copper Sulfate is a known fungicide so thats a no go for a bacterial/fungal tea.
Too much of it in the soil will kill a plant pretty quickly.
Due to the copper it may not even be good for the compost bin.

I would not doubt that the manufacturer has added an attractant for the gerbils.

So yes it most likely would and they can be an issue.
