Is mushroom cultivation as easy as it’s made out to be?
The answer is yes.
Mushroom growing is very easy if you know exactly what you’re doing, and it’s not difficult to learn the different steps involved in the process.
This is because mushrooms are actually fairly simple organisms that require a very specific set of environmental conditions in which to grow.
If they don’t have this set of conditions, they don’t grow.
On the other hand, the good news is that if they do have that set of conditions, they grow almost without any maintenance at all.
Another bit of good news is that these conditions are easy to achieve. All you really need to grow shrooms is dark and humidity.
You can provide darkness by simply having an enclosed space, and humidity can be provided for by spraying the growing medium in which the mushrooms are planted with a water spray twice a day.
Mushrooms are very productive, and you’ll have a new harvest of mushrooms starting to grow even as you take out the grown ones.
And they’re very nutritious, and well worth the little effort it takes to grow them.
If you’re growing them just to provide the occasional mushroom meal for your family, you needn’t bother to take too much trouble or effort over them.
Simply walk into your local gardening store and buy a complete mushroom kit.
They are also available online, at even more competitive prices, and if you buy these kits online they’ll be delivered right to your doorstep.
These kits really make mushroom growing easy, because they contain just about everything that a person needs to get started with organic gardening.
They usually come in a closed container that can be put up just about anywhere in the house that has the right temperature range.
The container itself provides the mushies with dark, so you don’t have to worry about that aspect of things.
The container will also contain mushroom spawn and a growth medium, and all that you actually have to do with this system is to spray the growth medium regularly – surely not much of a task.
You see how, with a mushroom kit, your mushrooms are virtually guaranteed and they usually come with steps for successful edible mushrooms.
Mushroom growing on a small scale is relatively easy, but if you feel up to the task at some later time, you can try growing mushrooms on a larger scale, perhaps in a shed in the garden or in an outhouse.
But if you’re just starting up and want to get the hang of the very basics of mushroom growing, then one of these starter kits is really your best bet.
