How you go about mushroom growing can directly impact how successful (or not) you are at growing them, of course.
If you go into organic mushroom gardening without sufficient information, you may end up with a lot of wasted effort.
On the other hand, if you do a little research (something that’s so easy to do with the internet as available as it is) you can easily make mushroom growing a vast success.
Because the simple fact of the matter is that it’s extremely easy to grow edible mushrooms.
You just have to farm the mushroom right.
While it’s possible to buy mushroom spores, these spores are actually so tiny that they’re microscopic.
This means that they can be quite difficult to handle, at least until you get used to things.
You can also harvest spores from mature mushrooms, simply by cutting the cap off and placing it on a large sheet of paper or on a sheet of glass (spore print).
It is recommended that you always go in for mushroom growing indoors.
Indoor growing greatly reduces the chances that a few wild spores might come to rest in your mushroom beds, and grow up among your safe shrooms.
If the mushrooms that grow from the wild spores turn out to be poisonous, it could cause serious problems for anyone who eats them.
And that’s just one reason why you shouldn’t grow mushrooms outdoors.
Another reason is that the growth medium is so rich that a lot of germs and unhealthy algae and fungi can start to grow in it if it’s left in an open environment.
In a closed environment, things are more controlled, and this means that your mushrooms can be relied upon to not only not be poisonous, but also not to carry any disease producing pathogens (this is where mushroom kits are useful).
Of course, you will wash the mushrooms before cooking them, but considering the growth medium that mushrooms grow in, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
These are just a few tips that you can use to help you with your mushroom growing.
