How to grow your own mushroom garden

Having your own mushroom garden is only a few steps away and for those which can spare around 12 hours in a week to get started, here is a general view on how to get started:

To start off, you’ll need a spawn to start the mushroom culture. You can produce your own spawn using a sterile culture, or you can buy ready-to-inoculate spawn, which we provide in-house.
Producing your own can be cheaper in the long run, but the start-up costs can be high, so chances are buying the ready-to-inoculate spawn is the way to go for you.
You’ll also need to buy the substrate. Many growers use straw or sawdust or even coffee grounds. All 3 substrates are generally the preferred method. You can use straw that can be chopped up into little pieces or saw dust grind to powdery form or used coffee grounds

First, chop the straw into short pieces. Next, wet the straw. Now it’s time to heat the straw in boiling water. Continue boiling for half an hour and then remove the straw and drain it. Finally, spread out the straw on a clean surface and let it cool down.
Now it’s time to pack plastic bags with the straw and spawn. Pack two or three inches of straw into the plastic bag and then lightly sprinkle the spawn on top. Repeat this until you’ve almost filled the bag, close the top and poke holes in the bag.
Now it’s time for incubation. Keep the growing area at around room temperature. Places the bags on a shelving unit. Remember to stop any threats of natural light getting into the room. Cover windows and cracks. Use a red “darkroom” light when you need to check on your bags. When you start to notice tiny pinhead mushrooms near the air holes in your bag, then you’re ready to move on to the next step.

For your fruiting room, you need a high level of humidity. The temperature will need to be within parameters. Unlike the incubation room, you’ll actually need a reasonable amount of natural light…

Just before your mushroom caps are fully uncurled, that’s when it’s time to harvest. To do so, twist the stem off as near to the growing block as you are able to. You’ve now harvested your mushrooms.
